Origin' - Merinos
Gorgeous Yarn 5 out of 5
Love this yarn. It feels amazing in the hand. You say, well, of course, it's merino. But there's just that added something to this merino that makes it a true pleasure for process knitters!

Love it as the luxury it is... 5 out of 5
This is supreme luxury yarn, with generous yardage, but keep in mind what it can and can't be expected to do. It knits up at worsted gauge but is a thin, drapey kind of worsted, so think of garments or accessories that benefit from that. Every minute of this sliding through my hands makes me happy!

Lovely! 5 out of 5
This yarn is just lovely. The silk gives it a nice drape, and it knits very evenly. Perfect for all of those pretty sweaters that are knit with sock yarn at a bigger gauge than normal.

Jade Sapphire - Moonlight
High maintenance, but worth it 4 out of 5
No doubt about it, this is yarn on the fussy side. It has zero elasticity, and runs thicker and fluffy versus very thin and somewhat fragile, so forget anything with fancy stitches or ribbing that needs to pull in. And, it sheds while you knit, so dress accordingly. The shedding isn't as bad as angora, and makes no difference in the visual look of the knit, but if you're wearing black chinos... I normally like my yarns with a lot of bounce, but this is so SOFT and just screams luxury so I didn't want to give up. After trying a couple of different ideas, I settled on a Honey Cowl for someone extra EXTRA special, and I'm very happy with how it's turning out. The knit is still in process, but I suspect a post-knit bath will resolve most of, if not all of, any residual shedding.

Offhand Designs - Zhivago Weekender
What's not to love? 5 out of 5
Offhand Designs bags are so gorgeous, with the best quality fabrics. This is BIG bag that opens nice and wide, with all the pockets a knitter could want. Love the bright, cheerful color!

Madelinetosh - Tosh DK
Another Madelinetosh Winner 5 out of 5
This is a lovely machine washable yarn, in a weight that easily goes 5.5 sts/1 or 5 sts/1. I'm currently using it to knit baby sweaters in the MinO pattern from Perl Grey, and it's working great.

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sport
Love this yarn! 5 out of 5
This and Koigu would be my two desert island yarns. What kind of island limits you to one yarn? I knit it at everything from fingering weight to almost DK. Consistently fabulous.

Addi - Addi Lace Needles
The best, still 5 out of 5
Everyone has their favorite lace needles, but these are mine. And Addi makes them better by the year, tweaking here and there even though I was very happy right from the start. In my view, the best tips for digging into stitches, and the best finish for hanging on just right to most lace-knitting yarns.
