 Lovely, High Quality Yarn 1 of 8 
 Review by: bean1082 Jan 29, 2014 
 Rating: 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Lorna's Laces - Sportmate
This is my first time trying any Lorna's Laces yarn and it's beautiful! The colors are gorgeous and the yarn itself is smooth, round, and cool to the touch. It's got great definition and no fuzz or halo.

 Product reviewed: Malabrigo - Arroyo
I really enjoyed knitting with this yarn. Its pretty soft, yet sturdy, and the colors were perfect for my shawl. I haven't blocked yet, but I'm sure it will only soften and look more lovely. Will definitely use again.

 Normally a Fan, but Disappointed this Time 3 of 8

 Product reviewed: Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
I love Malabrigo and have worked with the worsted and twist a few times. Either they changed something in the manufacturing process or this was a bad batch. But, my yarn was a bit hairy and less buttery soft, the color was kind of dull and unimpressive, and it bled like crazy when I blocked my knitting!! I soaked it twice and it still stained the towel I squeezed it out on. Hoping this was just a fluke and a change in Malabrigo's standards.

 Product reviewed: Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
I love Malabrigo yarns and have worked with the worsted before, so I knew what to expect. I will say that I was a little disappointed in the cocoa color. It doesn't look as dark and rich as it does online. It seems lighter and a duller brown. That being said, this is soft, squishy, and lovely, as usual.

 Super Soft and Yummy! 5 of 8

 Product reviewed: Sublime - Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK
This yarn was soft, springy, and had a sheen to it. It was enjoyable to knit with. It has great stitch definition, but also shows every mistake.

This was just the right thing to finish off a baby sweater I knit for a friend. Too cute!

 Not Very Impressed 8 of 8 
 Review by: bean1082 Nov 01, 2010 
 Rating: 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
 Product reviewed: Nashua - Nashua Creative Focus Worsted
This yarn felt a bit scratchy and rough while knitting and just seemed kind of difficult to work with. The final product came out nicer than I expected, softer than when knitting. But, overall I was kind of dissatisfied with it. Not as soft as you'd expect an alpaca/wool blend to be.
