Madelinetosh - Tosh Lace
Who doesn't love Madelinetosh?? 5 out of 5
As usual, Madelinetosh delivers. This is a beautiful and affordable yarn. The colors are bright and add visual interest to your delicate projects. Once blocked, it holds its shape well and makes your hard work look fabulous. Love it.

All For Love Of Yarn - Opulence Fingering
Opulence isn't an exaggeration 5 out of 5
This yarn is pure heaven, but at its price point it is definitely a smaller project pick. I had it on my wish list for a long time before treating myself to buying a skein, and I was not disappointed. It is soft, warm to the touch, beautiful, and a joy to work with. Its fiber content makes it suitable for almost any project, as it is springy and holds its shape well. If you can afford to indulge yourself, this is a great choice!

Berroco - Lago
Beautiful yarn, but hard to find projects for. 4 out of 5
I bought this on sale and absolutely love to look at it. The problem is that I can't find a project to use it for! Because it is somewhat thick-and-thin, and has virtually no give, it needs just the right project to make it work. I would definitely recommend this yarn, but I would find the right item to knit before purchasing it. I imagine that its qualities will give it excellent drape, making it more useful for a scarf than a cowl... and I am not certain that its fiber content would make a knitted sweater that doesn't sag or lose its shape.

Dream In Color - Smooshy
Outstanding! 5 out of 5
I purchased a skein of this yarn for a specific pattern that called for it, and it turned out even better than expected. It is absolutely soft, springy, and yet strong. The colors are beautiful and do not pool but do have a lot of visual interest. Not only have I since bought several more skeins in different colors, I am always trying to find projects to use it on!

Classic Elite - Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint
Love love LOVE this yarn 5 out of 5
Some lace weight yarns are extremely delicate and you're afraid to work with them. Some of the color ways can end up pooling or creating distracting sections in your project. This yarn is both so so soft, and also creates beautiful coloring in your projects. I use it frequently because-- once it's blocked-- it creates stunning lacework.

Araucania - Huasco
Soft and beautiful 4 out of 5
I bought this on sale with no project in mind, and it really is as soft and beautiful as the other reviewers claimed it to be. The reason I am giving it four stars instead of five is because the color way I selected ended up looking really strange once knitted. The hazard of hand-dyed yarns, I suppose.

Knitter's Pride - Knitter's Pride Cords
Love my Dreamz, need lots of cords! 5 out of 5
I have several sets of needles but I always come back to my Dreamz. The joins are smooth and the cords are excellent. I keep coming back over and over to buy more cords-- not because they wear out or get lost-- but because I start new projects and move my news around so much!

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Interchangeable Chunky Set
BEST. NEEDLES. EVER! 5 out of 5
I have several sets of Dreamz needles. I use their circulars, their double points, their fixed needles, the Chunkies... all of them. They are warm but neither slip nor snag the yarns. I have several sets of needles but I keep coming back to these time and time again. Plus, if I ever break one which I never have they have replacement tips!

Knitter's Pride - Dreamz Fixed Circular Needles
Best. Needles. Ever. 5 out of 5
I have several sets of needles, but I always come back to these for every single project. I use the Dreamz circulars, double points, and I have two sets of Dreamz interchangeables. They are warm and the yarn neither slips nor snags, the joins are excellent, and I have never broken a single needle. LOVE THEM.

Colinette - Jitterbug
Color my world! 5 out of 5
I bought this yarn in a crazy pink and yellow color way that reminds me of lemonades. It is soft, springy, and so much fun to look at that I have changed my mind a half dozen times trying to decide what to make with it. Whatever it eventually decides it wants to be, I'm sure it's going to look amazing!
