I love knitting with wool. My grandkids love the scarves that they get every winter.
I only used cotton once and it was crochet I made a lap gan with it. Let me tell ya that lapgan is darn heavy. I love it. I wouldn't ever knit cotton for anything large other than a dishcloth.
i just never got on with it. i found it hard to work with, itchy and irretated my skin as i worked it. the cats love playing with the 100% wool i have (sorry ). i bought 1000g that the cats are having great fun with. i ball it up really tight and sew the end so its really tight; they play for hours with it. prehaps i should have just offered it to people on here, oops sorry. i hadn't realised that people actually liked knitting with it so much.
sorry about the irritation. you may have a wool allergy like many people.
I have not knitted with pure wool a lot because it is expensive. The cheaper wool I have bought isn't real wonderful. I think I would love really nice wool. But....I use acrylic and acrylic and wool blends the most and don't mind them. I'm using a lot of Wool-Ease right now.
I love blends because I can't work with pure wool. I did get a fabulous baby alpaca from Blue Sky Alpaca in the mail just yesterday. But I am enjoying the blends that are out there now. (so I voted other)
