Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock
Great sock yarn! 5 out of 5
The yarn is a little thinner than some fingering weights I have used, but it is a good sturdy sock yarn that wears well if treated with care. I recommend hand washing over the machine socks in this yarn that I've hand-washed continue to look new and fit well. The yarn is not splitty, has few or no pills and is easy on the hands when knitting. I recommend using simpler sock patterns for this yarn since the colorways could overwhelm more complex or heavily textured patterns.

Enjoyable to knit with 5 out of 5
The yarn has a soft and springy hand and is easy on your hands. It knits up into a very springy and soft, warm fabric. You may want to knit this yarn with a slightly duller set of needles as it does like to split a little, but overall it's one I'd definitely buy again!

Vice Yarns - Paradigm
Color is gorgeous! 5 out of 5
This yarn is dazzling, with a nice twist and a soft hand that won't fatigue your hands as you knit. Stitch definition is very good. I can't say enough good things about the colors for this yarn - the photos simply don't do it justice. Colors are very rich and brilliant. I have not tested it for color bleed or crocking, which would be my only concern with colors this vibrant...but otherwise, this is a lovely yarn. I would purchase this again!

Lovely colors! 5 out of 5
Really pleased with the excellent Jimmy Beans service and this yarn. It knits up beautifully and the twist is fairly firm, but the yarn is soft and easy to handle. Stitch definition is excellent, and the colors in the Christmas in Paris colorway make for a lovely sweater. Definitely would purchase this again!

A lovely yarn! 5 out of 5
I purchased this yarn in the Farwell colorway to test swatch and received the Christmas in Paris LE colorway as a gift to make a sweater. My yarn was shipped very promptly and well-packed. The yarn's plies are moderately to tightly spun some areas are a little looser, but overall the spin and ply is good with little or no splitting. The yarn has very good stitch definition and bounce and the wool is soft and easy on your hands - no scratchiness. The Farwell colorway I tested did bleed some color when I gave it a soak and a block, but the color stayed very bright and the yarn stayed soft. I'm very happily knitting my gift and looking forward to a new sweater!
