On the other thread of a similar topic, someone suggested using Blue Sky Alpaca. Do you personally consider that would be a sufficiently soft yarn? :thinking:

Also, I'm sorry you were in need of such caps. :(

I used GGH Bali (a cotton/acrylic blend) for some chemo caps for a friend of a friend. They were here favorite -- she said they were sooo comfortable, the only ones she liked to wear. :D

I think that would be nice, not too harsh against the skin.

So far I'm doing better thankyou.

I'm so glad to know that. It seems every direction I turn anymore, I hear of someone new being diagnosed with cancer. I learned just last week that three people we know have been recently diagnosed with it. :(

Julie, Thanks for posting an image of the yarn. Lovely colours! I've used a Filatura di Crosa yarn Zara which is pure merino but has the same look. That way the ply twists 'across' seems to make for a comfortable garment and a nice soft look. I was interested to hear the cotton/acrylic blend worked so well and wasn't hot. :-)

Nobones, sorry to hear also and great though you can give advice as to what works and what may not. So, some of the aviator style hats etc - for autumn/winter especially - would be really welcome I imagine. I've always liked your avatar. I imagine a kitty claw grabbing a finger any moment!

Yeah those types of hats are nice. My avatar, is my cat Buffy, when ever my wool is out Buffy is cuddled up to me. The photo was taken the first week we had her. (Didn't get much knitting done that week! spent most of it chasing after my ball of wool!)
