I'm having a bit of an issue picking the right yarn for my mom's christmas project. I am knitting her a hoodie (I haven't yet decided whether it should be pullover or cardigan), but I can't decide on a good yarn.
My mom is usually on the warm side, but she works in a school where she has to run between buildings from time to time. She also has problems with eczema during the winter, and finds wool too itchy. I would like to knit her something in a lighter-weight, all-season natural fiber, but have found the costs for most too prohibitive.
