Lorna's Laces - Sportmate
Lovely, High Quality Yarn 4 out of 5
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.

Malabrigo - Arroyo
Beautiful 4 out of 5
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.

Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
Normally a Fan, but Disappointed this Time 3 out of 5
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.

Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
Nice yarn 4 out of 5
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.

Sublime - Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK
Super Soft and Yummy! 4 out of 5
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!

Nashua - Nashua Creative Focus Worsted
Not Very Impressed 3 out of 5
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.
