What would happen if a spark got onto your clothes, caught fire, and your top was acrylic?

Acrylic is an option. However, acrylic sweaters have a strange "hand" that just doesn't feel right. With Costco doing cashmere sweaters at in the $50-$75 range, acrylic sweaters just don't seem much of a bargain.

I wore acrylic sweaters all the time in my 'Cosby Sweater' phase. I'm done with it. It pills almost immediately and it feels awful.

What about scarves? http://www4.jcpenney.com/jcp/Product...archDepartment I'm not getting those but I'm just curious how acrylic scarves will feel like.

I don't find them warm and cozy at all. Kinda defeats the purpose of wearing a scarf.

I have a sweater from Zara that was 50% acrylic, 25% cashmere, 25% wool that I rather like.

It seems like scientists or whoever is out there designing fabrics should be able to improve on natural materials. I wonder why it is proving/has proved difficult...
