7. My Sigoth says Merino, Cashmir or either with a silk addition

She is of the "anti-acrylic" lobby on Ravelry because of the problems with flame resistance and melting.

You might want to look at "Colour Mart" (UK spelling) a UK company that does "mill ends".

If real wool allergy is a problem then Cashmir (goat fibre) would probably be OK or Alpaca, which is hypo alergenic.

Mind you if you want to splash out Qiviut. Spend even more and you can get the traditionally gathered variety which also supports the First Nations.
