Alsatian Soaps & Bath Products - Knitter's Hands
Apricot Knitters Hands 5 out of 5
I have lots of good hand creams, but this is the one I use when knitting. Light fragrance, no smell or product transferred to the yarn. It is not at all sticky even with mohair or alpaca yarns. A definite keeper for use for all my yarn & sewing projects.

Lorna's Laces - Masham Worsted
Lorna's Masham Worsted Shorewood 5 out of 5
It feels a little prickley knitting into a seed stitch scarf, but softened with blocking. I loved the teal with grey and the visual texture of the yarn. I'd like to compare it with the same yarn in Lorna's other worsted that is is Superwash for feel, but it doesn't have the visual texture so I'm glad I went with the Masham. The yarn doesn't prickle around my neck and I'm only moderately wool sensitive to prickles.

Crystal Palace - Moonshine
CP Moonshine 4 out of 5
I've used it in 3 colors held double on #8 needles. It has a moderate halo and makes a very soft fabric I gave it 4* because it was rather splitty and the glitter lumps were not that appealing to me. The items were well received. They blocked nicely. Warm & soft items.

Vice Yarns - Blurred Lines Sock Sets (150g)
Blurred Lines Sock Set 5 out of 5
Used Middle Earth for a cowl on Kollage square needles. Was a little concerned that the yarn felt a little scratchy and was wrinkled. When blocked however, it was fantastic colors & stitch definition deep penetration of the colors would be happy to use again

Vice Yarns - Blurred Lines Sock Sets
Middle Earth 5 out of 5
I used 1 set to make a cowl. Was a little concerned because the yarn felt stiff & scratchy & was wrinkled while knitting. However, after blocking, it was very soft, excellent stitch definition on Kollage square needles. Brilliant colors with intricate shading. Would use again

Soak - Soak Bottle
Cleaning & Blocking 5 out of 5
I've started using Soak for cleaning & blocking my hand knits. I used Aquae. It had a VERY light pleasant smell that I couldn't smell at all on the dried item. This is a positive for me not liking a strong perfume on my knits. It cleaned & rinsed very well and I detected no residue. I used only 3-4 drops in a 2 quarts. Very sudsy but easily rinsed out. The $10 for a small bottle seems a little pricey, but my knits are worth it and a small bottle will last a long time.

Zealana - Kauri Worsted
Zealana Kauri Worsted - Blue Awa 5 out of 5
Addendum: Blocked very well with Soak as per Zealana website recommends. Hat had even more fluff & bounce & halo after blocking. My wool phobic husband loves it. No fading or color change, but the color had more penetration & texture making it even better appearance after blocking. Definitely will use this again.

Zealana - Kauri Worsted
Zealana Kauri worsted 15 Blue Awa 5 out of 5
Substantial weight like a heavy worsted but soft with good twist, hand, & stitch definition & a mild halo. I used US 7 for a hat. Excellent insulation for our 10*F winter! I'll likely use it again. Was very pleased with finished product. I read about the New Zealand possum issues so this is an Eco friendly yarn. I'd like to see more colors at JBW in this yarn.

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Special Interchangeable Needle Set
Knitters Pride 16 inch special set 5 out of 5
The wood is 2 1/4 & overall 3 1/4 excluding the cord which is moderately firm. Excellent choice for small projects. I've used several sizes now with excellent results. Sharp points. Yarn flow is very smooth. I highly recommend for the small projects.

Koigu - Koigu Bulky
Koigu B70 Bulky 5 out of 5
Twist is comparable to Misti Alpaca Paints & yarn is almost as soft, color runs are slightly longer, but close. Color intensity of this is soft neutrals, not the high color penetration of Madelinetosh Chunky ie Alabaster. Overall, a beautiful yarn to hand, very soft on the skin & I was very pleased with the scarf. I would definitely buy again.
