best and worst yarn

Okay, this is for the SP10 contest. I definitely have two favorite yarns. Koigu Painter's Pallet yarn and Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino. I've made several scarves out of the Koigu as well as the only pair of socks I've every made. It's wool, but soft and the colors are incredible. I made two baby sweaters for my grandchildren out of the Baby Cashmerino. Both yarns are on the pricey side, so I don't knit too much with them...but I love them. Here are some of the scarves I've made from Koigu.

The worst yarn? Anything that is 100% acrylic and very stiff. In my youth, I knitted a couple of afghans out of acrylic yarn. I stil have the afghans, but they stay in the closet because they are very stiff and not comfortable.
