Its a squeaky feel to me, not a squeaky sound. Weird, huh? I'm sure there are some cool varieties out there, too!
haha! I know exactly what you mean!
I am a super poor grad student so I pretty much only use acrylic or acrylic blends, but then again, I never can seem to finish a wearable. I always used RH for scarves, blankets, hats, gloves, etc. Recently I got a bunch of Caron Simply Soft for an aghan and I dont know if I'll buy RH again! I keep splitting stiches on the SS, which is annoying, but it feels so much nicer. I snapped up 6 skeins of charcoal wool that were mega-on-sale once, b/c I just couldnt pass it up. But then it seemed so precious I have never been able to figure out what to do with it. The one benefit of buying more expensive yarn, I would think, is that my stash would dwindle, b/c I couldnt afford to keep feeding it. Maybe I'd actually finish something more complicated than a hat!
