I'm not exactly new to these boards, but this is my first post. I want to make the hug shrug from magknits. The cashmere yarn used in the pattern is a little too rich for my tastes (US $15 per skein!). I'm looking for a cheaper alternative (around $25-30 for 250 yds.) that feels soft. I was looking at Lopi yarn, but just from pics, it looks pretty rough. Any help is appreciated.
P.S. I love these boards. Looking at everyone's finished projects is so inspiring!
