I am using up some of the yarn my wife and son bought for me this past Christmas. This scarf is made with 1.5 skeins of Bernat Mosaic yarn...100% acrylic and variegated...100g/3.5oz. There was a lot of yarn used up at the end with the fringe. I wanted to get all the colors in the fringe, which meant I had to unroll ravel a lot of it. So, now I have a few tiny balls of yarn...good cat toys! It's not the softest acrylic but it is okay. My wife likes it because of the colors, so she gets the prize! It's a funny yarn because it mimics hand spun yarns that may have a bit more "raw" look to them. It has thin and thicker spots which add an interesting variation in the tension and look. Since it's acrylic, I didn't soak or block it. I used #13 needles and used a 2x2 rib stitch.
