Top yarns to crochet with over the Summer

So it’s summer what should I stitch with? Here are my top choices!
1) Green Mountain Spinnery’s Sylvan Spirit:
It is a great yarn that is composed of Tencel and wool. For those of you who do not know what Tencel is , it’s actually made of tree pulp. How cool is that? It is a breathable yarn that feels great on your hands and keeps you nice and cool when you wear it. It was featured in the spring issue of Interweave Knits and will be a yarn used in our first issue of a digital crochet magazine Chain Two. Keep in eye on http://www.chaintwo.com for more details.
2) Cotton-
Ok this one is a tie. Green Mountain Spinnerys cotton comfort or Brown Sheeps Cotton Fleece. Cotton comfort is 80% wool and 20% cotton. It’s got a great feel while crocheting and again it’s super Eco friendly. Browns sheep cotton fleece is 80% cotton and 20% wool. It comes in a great array of colors. Both will be featured in Chain Two’s first issue as well.
