Crystal Palace - Mini Mochi
Great for entrelac or mitered pattern 5 out of 5 stars
as well as ripples or striping patterns. Very soft with eeally beautiful color combinations. I've used it for shawls mostly. This yarn really grows when you block it so you might block a swatch or make something a little smaller.

Misti Alpaca - Tonos Pima Silk
Soft 5 out of 5 stars
Beautiful tonal colors with subtle shades and lovely soft drape. I used it for a little lacy shawl and it blocked out beautifully.

Plymouth - Encore Tweed
I love tweed 5 out of 5 stars
I knitted a cardigan with this yarn about a year ago. It is soft, has a nice drape. There is some openwork in the pattern Cusco by Cheryl Oberle and I blocked it. It has held the openwork nicely and is very comfortable.

Universal Yarns - Classic Shades
Beautiful colors 5 out of 5 stars
Very soft, very machine washable yarn with long color repeats and interesting color combinations. I used it for Noro Striped Scarf free pattern on Ravelry as well as other projects. Great for mitered or intrelac. Great for gifts because it is so washable.

Cascade - Venezia Worsted
Silky soft drape 5 out of 5 stars
I made a lace shawl with this yarn and it is one of the nicest thing I've ever made. It's very smooth, good for people who don't want anything wooly, and the pattern definition looks great. I find using slippery, pointy metal needles makes yarn less splitty and easy to work with.
