A friend just moved here to Michigan from Florida and is already complaining about the cold and it was only in the 50s last night...(What a wimp!) He's said on several occasions that he'd like a scarf and he'd like it in Bear colors (black, various shades of browns and tans) BUT, he hates wool with a passion. It's too scratchy and makes him break out. (If he doesn't stop complaining and messing with the thermostat I might demonstrate that ANY yarn made into a scarf will irritate the throat if it's tightened enough, but I digress!)
I would rather not use separate colors because I'm lousy at weaving in ends and it's such a tedious job. Can anyone recommend a non-wool yarn in variegated colors of browns and black that would be suitable for a scarf? Oh, and affordable, too. I've heard of a bamboo yarn. Anyone used it yet and how did you like it?
(This is my first attempt at a posting of any sort and wasn't sure if I should have blogged it or done a forum topic. Usually I'm just a lurker in any group.)
