Easy Balaclava

This balaclava/ski mask is excellent for cold weather and can even be worn under another hat. It keeps your neck warm and can be worn several different ways – above the chin, below the chin, above the mouth or with the neck rolled up for a cap with a brim. I’ve made it in wool, a wool blend, and 100% acrylic for those who don’t want wool rubbing against their face.

Looking to make this for my Brother who works up in the highlands. Brrr.
Could you suggest an Acrylic wool chose that works with the needle size in the pattern ?

Slightly worried that the wool will itch.
