What yarn to use for a crochet shawl?

In my opinion any yarn would work. If you want a lightweight shawl or a warm one, it’s up to you. In Vivian shawl I used Lion Brand Touch of Alpaca, but it can be substituted with any medium weight 4 yarn. I made Vivian easy triangle shawl for winter months so I went with  a warmer yarn. I chose a contrast of cream and charcoal colors.
