I used this yarn to make my first scarf..I used the dark olive green, the linen shade and the espresso dark brown. I gave the scarf to my fiance and he likes it and hasn't said anything about it being too rough or anything like that. It also seemed easy to work with (not that I've worked with many different yarns) and the colors of this yarn are really nice Smiley I'm still relatively new to the world of knitting and frankly I could really care less about the acrylic vs natural fibers (except for merino wool which I really like)...I think acrylic is great because it is inexpensive and machine washable!

  I'm actually planning to use this yarn for a Dr. Who scarf (if I ever get it started), as the colors are absolutely perfect! 

What colors are you using for the Dr. Who scarf?  My bf's father is a huge fan.

Him: I think we've been on the same page for a while now.
Me: What if we're on the same page, but in different books?

I'm planning to use linen, silver gray (or charcoal gray...not sure yet), brick, honey, *probably* dusty green, purple, and toffee.  The only one I'm not 100% thrilled about is the linen...it's a little light, but it'll do; I've considered using the Pearl Mist, but I dunno about the one heathered yarn with the rest completely solid.  And that khaki/green color is so funny in the original.  Dusty green matches the Brown Sheep recommended closest (but DH said no wool...hence the VC), but I'm not sure if it matches the actual scarf best, out of all the VC greens.  We'll see.  I'm waiting for the yarn to go on sale again before I stock up.
