I look for bargains on long color run yarn at Ice Yarns/Yarn Paradise. Mary Maxim and Herrschnerr's also have several choices. Red Heart has Boutique Unforgettable, which some dislike, because it's roving. I've had good success with Lighthouse Yarn, wool roving, sold by Herrschnerr's, and some Magic Wool from Ice Yarns.

The "Artist" yarn from Plymouth Yarn Company works into a beautiful Entrelac. I made a cowl out of it. It is 65% acrylic, 35% wool. Even some real "won't knit with acrylic" customers that have come into the shop have decided to use this. It feels nice and is perfect for Entrelac projects.

Might I suggest checking on Ravelry for entrelac scarves and find one you like then check projects done from that pattern. You can check what yarns were used for that pattern as well. Gives you wonderful ideas and color and yarn choices this way.

If I may ask a question...can someone tell me what kind of wool would not be picky when wearing. I would like to knit a cowl but unsure which kind of wool to buy. Should I buy a mix I would prefer not to use acrylic for this one project. Tks for any info on this.

Merino is known to be the softest wool. I find Australian merino to be the softest. Merino blended with alpaca or cashmere will be even softer.

I used Kochoran, a luxury yarn from Eisaku Noro & Co., 20% silk, 30% angora and 50% wool, in the scarf pictured here, but it was pricey. Since this scarf, I've used Mochi Plus and Chroma worsted for other projects. I think they would work ok, too.
