Stitch Nation - Full o' Sheep
Color review 4 out of 5
I got 3 colors: Meadow and Thyme are pretty and look just like the photos. But I ordered 2 Passion Fruit and whoa, it's a very hot pink/fuchsia, not at all like the more aubergine that the photo shows. I doubt I'll ever use that! That said, the yarn is beautiful. I love the look and feel of a single ply yarn and this is a nice one!

Tahki - Taos
Pretty cool 4 out of 5
I loved this yarn except that the thick and thin aspect of it was very extreme. The thick was sometimes a huge puff of yarn, and worse, the thin was often not more than the black wrapping thread. But it looked nice when knitted, and also when felted slipper booties. I think it would be a great hat or bulky cowl, the colors are very pretty.

Cascade - Eco+
Bleh 1 out of 5
Extremely disappointed when I got this yarn recommended by Jimmy Beans on a phone order. It's definitely NOT a bulky yarn, the ply separates and thus is prone to splitting. I knit booties to felt and they just didn't turn out nice. The yarn didn't felt well. Really a fail since I told them what the project was that I needed orange yarn for. I'm going to donate the rest of this giant hank of yarn to charity. I know a lot of people use it, I just can't imagine why except for the price.

Cascade - Baby Alpaca Chunky
so soft 4 out of 5
Knitting a cowl with this and it's so soft and nice. It's somewhat prone to splitting, but is generally nice.

Cascade - Pima Tencel
Not impressed 2 out of 5
I got this sunny yellow for the beak any eyes on an owl hat. The twist was poor and it was way too splitty. Luckily I only had to use a small amount. BTW, most comments on Ravelry complain about pilling as well.

Tahki - Cotton Tweed
Great choice 5 out of 5
I needed a non-wool yarn to knit an owl. I love how the texture and tiny flecks of color remind me of feathers. It looks just like the photo. It does split a little; it's the nature of yarn, so I can't complain too much. This was just what I was looking for.
