My friend asked me to knit her a scarf but she is very allergic to wool and the final product therefore has to be wool-free.
I want it to be reasonably insulating but for that I can only think of silk, but with silk, I’m not sure if I can knit anything that has a lot of texture since silk is known for its drape but not stitch definition.
If I want to knit a scarf made of non-wool fibers that has good warmth retention, what’d be the kind of yarn that I should choose?
Also has anyone knitted with bamboo yarn? Is it only good for summer wear?
Any comments or advice is welcome. Thanks!
