go to superwash 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I have made so many baby blankets with this yarn. It never fails me. Colors do not run and washes and dries beautifully. Go to for Anemone hats.

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted = Beautiful Variegated Colors! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I was skeptical to try Lorna's Laces because I don't tend to care for variegated colors however, I LOVE Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted. The yarn itself is so soft and a pleasure to knit with. The gorgeous colors knit up as beautiful Honey Cowls I haven't had the guts to venture into trying stockinette plus variegated - yet - for fear I won't like it! Thank you so much to Jimmy Beans Wool for stocking such a large selection of colors - and I LOVE Jimmy Beans Wool's exclusive colors as well! I'm also looking forward to trying some of the more tonal shades in the future.

What a fun scarf in honor of the Princess Bride and I LOVE the special colorway Lorna's Laces dyed up for the occasion.

Soft & wonderful 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
A delight to knit with. I prefer the semisolids because the variegates tend to pool more than I care for. The colors are vibrant and the result is squishy soft. Machine washability is a big plus, too!

Enjoyable to knit with 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
The yarn has a soft and springy hand and is easy on your hands. It knits up into a very springy and soft, warm fabric. You may want to knit this yarn with a slightly duller set of needles as it does like to split a little, but overall it's one I'd definitely buy again!

Lovely colors! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
Really pleased with the excellent Jimmy Beans service and this yarn. It knits up beautifully and the twist is fairly firm, but the yarn is soft and easy to handle. Stitch definition is excellent, and the colors in the Christmas in Paris colorway make for a lovely sweater. Definitely would purchase this again!
