  1. I wanted to let everyone know what we decided to go with for the yarn... Berroco Comfort Chunky (50% superfine nylon & 50% superfine acrylic) I grew increasingly concerned that natural fibers would stretch out too much with the weight of the cape over time. She didn't have any particular yarn allergies, so that opened my options up quite a bit. She was adamant that it be a soft yarn, so I quickly dropped most of the 100% acrylics off my list - there are a few that I've been ok with, but most of them end up too scratchy over time. I'd used the comfort chunky in a scarf and it ha
  2. I've been asked to make this cape. http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/hooded-cape The person who is requesting it lives in an area where it doesn't get cold too often, so I'm trying to find a yarn that is bulky weight that doesn't stretch much (ideally very little stretch) & that washes well - even if that means handwashing/blocking to dry. I don't mind paying more for the yarn if the quality is there. Thanks for any help you can give me!
  3. My arms break out with red welts after I work too long (more than a couple of hours) with RHSS. I use it for some of my projects, but it takes me a long time to do them. I recently discovered the same rash when working for a long time with Vanna's yarn. I think it's just acrylics in general, though. Other types of yarn don't cause this problem.
