Plymouth - Worsted Merino Superwash
5 out of 5
Very soft and smooth. Good stitch definition. I made a shawl with some lace and it blocked beautifully.

Plymouth - Encore Tweed
I love tweed 5 out of 5
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.

Nice blend 5 out of 5
Gorgeous color combinations with long repeats. I've used it for entrelac and modular projects in this and the worsted weight. Also pretty for fair Isle. Very soft and warm.

Beautiful colorways 5 out of 5
I've used this yarn for mitered shawls in Spice Market and Ice Wine. It is great for entrelac or mitered designs with it's long repeats. Very soft and warm.

Cascade - Eco Duo
So soft 5 out of 5
I petted this yarn and had to buy it. It is so soft and delicate. I made a cowl for a gift and it was warm and light.

Universal Yarns - Classic Shades
Beautiful colors 5 out of 5
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
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.
