That's nice of you! I actually started this quest while looking for something to do entrelac with other than Noro and there are actually a few different choices now. I've used the marble and it's a nice acrylic. Encore like the Classic Shades I tried here is a tad itchy. I don't want cotton really, but it is an alternative and I have some of the Classic Long Print to try. It's got sharp cut offs between the colors so it's limiting though. ~sigh~
Universal Yarn - Classic Long Print and Classic Shades
Knit One Crochet Too - Ty-dy
James C. Brett - Marble
Plymouth Encore - Colorspun
Most of the ones that people list as alterntives are wool, but cheaper I guess.
