yarn question

Earlier this year I bought some chEaP 100% acrylic worsted weight yarn for teaching myself and practice.

Now I have A LOT left and I want to make things out of it, the only problem is it's kind of stiff and scratchy, not very soft.

My question is - is there a way to soften this yarn and give it a nicer texture? Will it be softer once it's washed?

Do you have suggestions for things to make with scratchy stuff?

My first project with it is the "faggot lace scarf" in Knitting for Dummies. I'm also working on a rug with some heavier yarn. Pictures as soon as something is finished :-)
