What is a good soft post-felting yarn?
What is a yarn that ends up soft after felting, like for a child's hat? Aren't some yarns that are scratchy before felting still scratchy after felting? Is Cascade 220 soft both pre and post felting?

I really need to get to a REAL LYS to do some yarn fondling! I can't believe I'm still a LYS virgin.

What are you saving yourself for!?? :rofling:

I made my clogs with 220, and they are very soft after felting.
