Am I the only one who can't decide?
I love wool, but living in Texas makes wool somewhat impractical for much of the year. I really like cotton, too, but it isn't as forgiving as wool. I like blends, as well, synthetics with wool for instance (but would still probably prefer wool if it weren't for the other factor, of Texas heat!); and also I love synthetics for their easy care-plus if my kids (3 boys and a girl) ruin them I won't be so upset at all the $$ invested
And I have some Alpaca in the stash thats blended with wool but I haven't worked with it yet. It sure feels nice in the skein though!
I would love to try some silk and wool blends-I have some in my stash also but again, haven't gotten around to it yet.
