 Product reviewed: Rowan - Wool Cotton 4ply
I insist on machine wash for baby knits, and this is the perfect yarn for baby, so soft. I love the colors too.

 Product reviewed: Artyarns - Beaded Pearl & Sequins
Soft and elegant. This is a special yarn for that very special project. Because of the price I won't use it often, but there is a place in the yarn world for this lovely stuff. I used it as a cuff and placket border on a Kidsilk Haze sweater. Oh my, it's gorgeous and surprisingly easy to knit.

 soft but pilly 4 of 10 
 Review by: Knitionary May 01, 2013 
 Rating: 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
I give this an A++ for softness, but a low low grade for pilling. Sooo pilly, I won't used this for a sweater ever again. I think it's fine for shawls or scarves or something that won't get a lot of wear. My sweater was ragged before it was finished and pilling occurred during the first wearing.

 great yarn for gift sweaters 5 of 10 
 Review by: Knitionary May 01, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Cascade - Cascade 220 Superwash
This yarn is hard wearing and fool proof to wash. I love it for gift giving because the recipient can throw it in the washer and even the dryer won't kill it, although I ask them to dry flat! It's not exactly a soft yarn when knitting up, but does soften when washing. Great color selection.

 lightweight chunky 6 of 10 
 Review by: Knitionary May 01, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - All Seasons Chunky
I'm not usually a fan of chunky yarns, I think they are often too heavy. I was given a skein of All Seasons Chunky to review, and since I love the original All Seasons Aran, I was hoping to like the chunky version too. It has the soft and wonderful attributes of the original, stitches line up beautifully, easy on the hands and the fabric seems more lightweight than other chunkys. I immediately bought a sweaters worth for Eos and loved working with it. I think the microfiber must make it light.

 Product reviewed: Rowan - Kidsilk Haze Stripe
I am the #1 fan of Kidsilk Haze so when Rowan introduced this version I knew I had to get some. So much fun to knit, just like KSH but with the color changes by Kaffe Fasset, he did it right. I get more compliments on my simple stockinette scarf than almost any other knit in my wardrobe. Your pattern should be simple to show off the beautiful color changes. I've bot an idea to make a simple pullover.

 My favorite yarn 8 of 10 
 Review by: Knitionary Apr 06, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - Kidsilk Haze
I have never tired of this yarn and must have knit dozens of sweaters from it. Knitting with it can be a challenge if your not used to it. It takes finding the right needle and the right light and the right gauge that works for you, but when you've got all that right the fabric it creates is beyond gorgeous. So lightweight, but warm and cozy, I wear this year round. It wears like iron, my 10 year old sweaters look great. Knit it doubled with US5 for a DK weight, oh that's heaven.

 magnificent 9 of 10 
 Review by: Knitionary Apr 06, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - Kidsilk Haze Trio
I loved Trio! I am nuts over Kidsilk Haze so had to try Trio immediately. If you love KSH you will love Trio, and if you don't love KSH you will love Trio too. Very lofty and very easy to knit. Lovely melange of color in blend. I'm not usually a fan of bulky weight, but this is very light and lofty. No pilling.

 favorite tweed 10 of 10 
 Review by: Knitionary Apr 06, 2013 
 Rating: 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Rowan - Felted Tweed
One of my favorite tweeds. Very fine yarn with light flecks of tweedy bits, a very find hand with lovely fluid fabric. Wears well with minimal pilling, one yarn I consider to be a workhorse of a yarn. Your sweater will last years and not show it's age. Great yardage, colors and pattern support.
