Wool, to me, is the most versatile textile -- if you need to be "safe" and conservative go wool. A super 120's can be worn year round.
HY has more options and better colors -- for me the rise is to low -- at 5'9 it is probably not to low for you.
Either option is worth a try, just bite the bullet and order a pair. If it does not work out sell them on the mens classified or simply exchange for a shirt or some fall accessories.
