What is a good yarn for mittens?

I am looking for a nice cozy soft yarn that is durable enough for mittens. I often find wool to be really itchy and stiff. Any other suggestions of a type of yarn or maybe some nice soft wools?


I use a Merino blend wool,Patons and Lions have them.

I like wool/synthetic blends for mittens. I’ve used Plymouth Encore and Lion Woolease with success!

Thanks those are great suggestions!

I’m knitting some now with Caron Simply Soft, and they feel wonderful (wool irritates my skin).
