What is softer?

What feels the softest when it is made up? Alpaca? Mohair? Something else? I want to make either a scarf or cowl for my daughter but I want it to be so soft that she cannot bear to put it down. Any advice? I walked around my LYS yesterday, but feeling the yarn in the skein is not the same as feeling it made up into something and they did not have anything made up in the alpaca OR the mohair. Any suggestions?

Alpaca is much softer. Mohair is beautiful but is probably best not used next to the skin.
Ooooh! That is so interesting. I never heard of Shahtoosh. I thought I had heard everything....Another bubble burst!
