Scary Quality 2 out of 5
The colors in this yarn are beautiful, however, the quality is quite questionable. I crocheted a vest as a xmas gift for someone and then passed on gifting it because as I finished the project the yarn broke and frayed really easily during the knotting process. I was quite surprised. This is not a high dollar item compared to some other yarns of this variety but I'm not sure I'd ever trust washing this garment now. I'd pass on this brand in the future and spend additional money for something more quality from Artyarns or the Lorna brand.

Lovely Drape 5 out of 5
The colors of this are gorgeous. I made a lovely shawl out of floral motifs but the colors could easily make any guy happy to get a scarf made out of this product.

Lacy Feminine 5 out of 5
I'm creating a shawl/wrap type project with this color and the gray. I'm not even done with the project but have gotten tons of comments in the lunch room as people watch it's progress during lunch & breaks.

Lovely Flowers 5 out of 5
This yarn isn't just for socks! I love this yarn for multiple projects including flowers, mittens, hats, etc. I've never created anything disappointing with Lorna's brand.

A Tiny Jewel 5 out of 5
What an awesome little jewel with a 100 purposes this little gem would be great on a garment, on a quilt, in embroidery, etc. etc. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the white ones when they are available!

Nice to Work With 4 out of 5
This is a nice yarn to work with. Pros good sport weight matched the pattern gauge exactly and the color almost matched the online example exactly. Con for me were the yarn has no sheen what so ever it is pretty dull so expect a matte type finish.

Addi - Swing Hooks
Disappointed 1 out of 5
As arthritis is setting in I thought I'd give this ergonomic style hook a try but I am really glad I only bought a single hook and not a set. First con, the price - muy expensiva to say it nicely. Second, the hook is pretty heavy compared to a regular Susan Bates aluminum hook. Third unless you hold your crochet hook like a toothbrush you won't like this hook, if fact it is shaped exactly like an Oral B toothbrush handle.

Gorgeous 5 out of 5
This is my first time purchasing Sadelinetosh but I will certainly purchase more. It is very thin for lacy type items but I'm doublins it up on a scarf project. The project isn't done yet but it is turning out gorgeous - both in color and drape. I highly recommend this yarn.

Personal Favorite 5 out of 5
This yarn is a joy to work with. It makes great socks but I used it to make gauntlets this year and they are equally as gorgeous, warm but not too bulky.
