Acrylic yarn

I want to knit some coffee cup holder thingies. There was a thread a while back (started by Feministmama I believe) that suggested acrylic yarn. I bought a skein of Red Heart but I cannot stand touching it much less knitting with it. What are some nicer quality acrylic or acrylic blend yarns?

Why dontcha try making felted wool coffee bras?

coffee bras???

Lindsey, have you felt the Lion Brand wool-ease thick and quick?
I have some here and it feels nice and soft even though it’s 80% acrylic. I made a coffee pot warmer (one of those plunger glass coffee makers) out of black acrylic and it works great. Forgot what type of yarn… could have been red heart.
