I'm trying to find a yarn substitute that is really soft and fluffy. I guess a visit to the LYS is in order.

Do you prefer natural fibers, or are you willing to go nylon/acrylic for the softness factor?

I'm using TLC Car Mia for a Clapotis right now, and because of the angora, it's a little bit fluffy.

Sounds like you might want something like Rowan Kid Silk Haze, though.

Funnily enough, because I'm carless it's harder for me to get to a store that would sell things like Caron or Lion Brand, so I'm "stuck" with the yarn store. I'm thinking I might hold a couple things together.

Maybe the KSH like you mentioned, and then something smoother in a DK weight. Not sure...
