I’m too deaf to be an authority on what works best to silence the sound, but I can tell a difference in how they behave.
When I use real wool, the yarn frizzes into nice puff balls. When I have used acrylic yarn, it never frizzes up.
I didn’t experiment much with different acrylic yarns, just stayed away from it after I saw that. Maybe other synthetic yarns frizz up.
