Hi all -- I'm looking for yarn to use to crochet neckwarmers for athletes - I'm new to crochet but am looking for a wicking or 'technical' yarn that won't get soggy with sweat and won't hold odor. Any ideas?
Thanks so much.
There is a lot of info about weights and ply, etc. here. I'll copy what I think applies best to your question. I do not know if there is a yarn that repels odor, but I would watch for ease of machine wash and dry.
There may be specialty sport-fabric yarns somewhere, but my guess is that they would be expensive. Did a google search "antimicrobial yarn." Some interesting reading there. Not really for the consumer market.
Found this site that claims a blend of soy and polypropelene in it's yarn ''wicks away" moisture, but it's kind of pricey.
