Hi Eric,
I am going to give my take on your question here, so that perhaps a moderator will see it on the forum and also add their bit.
I think wool yarn squares will always be needed because of the fire danger in shack dwellings. The level of poverty in my country is appalling and millions of people still resort to candles for lighting, kerosene for cooking and fires for warmth and heating water - all of which means open flames and the risk fire damage. Many children are seriously burnt by the accidental knocking over of candles, during their sleep. Every year acres of shack dwellings go up in flames when a kerosene stove has been knocked over or again even a candle falling over. Having accidently set myself alight ( woman of small brains) I can attest to the pain and damage caused by melting acrylic material on the skin. In my case I can thank God that quick reactions limited the damage and all I have is the embarassement of being stupid.

That said, I do knit with acrylic yarns because where I live, on the eastern coast of South Afric, we enjoy a very moderate climate, almost sub-tropical, and wool is very rarely available in our shops.
regards - Jen
