Sublime - Sublime Organic Wool
Really Soft Wool! 5 out of 5
Not just pretty and soft, but Organic too! How is wool organic? Are the sheep fed on organic grass? Hmmm. However it becomes organic, it also becomes soft to the hand, no clumps, knots or separating, and the colors are soft and restful -- perfect for babies who don't get itchy from wool very soft -- the only downside is of course it must be hand-washed, but that's true of every good 100% wool.

Lantern Moon - Rosewood Circulars
Super Circulars! 5 out of 5
It's hard to say what's best about these: the beautiful smooth rosewood, or the circular cable that doesn't roll itself up! They're easy to use, and don't need soaking like some other circular needles. They're also much more comfortable to my hands than any metal circulars. Love these!

Lantern Moon - Dalbergia Straights
Happily Surprised! 5 out of 5
As a long-time user of Brittany birch needles, I was a little hesitant to try these from Vietnam. I shouldn't have been. These are beautifully made and polished needles true to size and gauge, smooth, no splintering like cheap bamboo can do, and lovely to look at on top of it! I've tried other needles from Lantern Moon and they're all great!

Crystal Palace - Taos Wool
Gorgeous tones! 5 out of 5
What a great yarn! The softness of hand, the many beautiful colorways -- I love Taos! I just wish they'd quit discontinuing colors like Desert Blooms!. This yarn is the perfect heavy worsted weight for any project I'm making matching sweaters for my niece and her 3-year-old, and I'm sure that even my great-niece's sensitive skin will love Taos!

Cascade - Cascade 220
A Great Yarn 4 out of 5
You always know what and how much! you're getting with Cascade 220. It's affordable, easy to work with, and comes in plenty of colors. My only complaint is that it comes in skeins whine so I have to haul out the swift and wind it into a ball for easy knitting without knots! Once in a ball, it's great, with one strand or two. Perfect for felting, too.

Brown Sheep - Lamb's Pride Worsted
All-Around Great Yarn 5 out of 5
I LOVE Lamb's Pride, worsted or bulky! That touch of mohair makes this so much softer than a 100% wool yarn -- no itchy scarves, thick socks, or sweaters with Lamb's Pride! Being all natural also means that if it encounters flame it won't burn and injure skin, it'll just smolder a bit. Safer if you're sending a gift to someone in the military! Even children can be comfy in Lamb's Pride, and the enormous range of colors is a treasure for creative crafters!

Boye - Stitch Holder
Boye's Stitch Holders Hold! 4 out of 5
These are great -- especially since there are three sizes. I'd appreciate one a little bit smaller for mitten thumbs, but otherwise, only one teensy complaint usually when you want to take stitches off, you're coming from the wrong end. Holders that let you take stitches off from either end would be better in some situations.
