This is my next crochet project. I have, possibly insanely, agreed to make it for a Craftster swap. I am optimistic as I think the swap deadline will motivate me. Although my 2nd sock is still unstarted, I can put that off for awhile for this wrap, which will be done in black. I even went right from teaching yesterday to JoAnns to get the yarn which is Lion Brand Micro-Spun and is so soft! And acrylic, yet soft. I have been having some problems with my ethics and crocheting. I am a vegetarian, and I try really hard to not wear animal products like wool, leather and silk. However, so many nice yarns are wool! I've managed to stick to the acrylic or cotton this far, but a lot of the acrylic does feel plastic-y. The sock was in cotton which I really enjoyed, and now this microspun is impressing me with its softness, so maybe that is something I can use more of in the future.
On that note, if anyone knows of some cruelty free wool, I'd love to hear about it. I emailed KnitPicks to ask about the conditions in which the animals they get their wool from are raised, but they never wrote back, alas.
