Plymouth - Gina Chunky
Soft and shiny 3 out of 5 stars
This is beautiful yarn, but I didn't realize how shiny the yarn is, so I haven't used it except for filling in a scrappy shawl. That's probably how I'll use it. It's beautiful and feels nice.

Crystal Palace - Danube Bulky
Beautiful and soft 4 out of 5 stars
I used this for a scarf. Unfortunately, I absentmindedly began a straight stitch and was halfway through the scarf before I realized I should have done garter or moss. It curled and got ropey, but I was on a deadline, so the person got a ropey scarf.

Berroco - Brio
Quick and easy 5 out of 5 stars
I bought two different colorways and made two cowls for gifts. I finished the first one in a couple of hours and the only reaason I didn't finsh the second one was that it got too late! I will buy this again next winter unless it's discontinued. I love the mix of somber color and firestar bling.

It may be gray, but it makes my day! 5 out of 5 stars
Wow, this yarn is yummy. I am so tied to color and I so refuse to leap out of the intermediate knitter stage that I usually must knit with variegated yarn or at least change yarn color every 10-12 rows. This yarn has such a lovely texture AND has bits of color in it that it is a pleasure to knit row after row. Now, I am knitting an elephant hat, so it's not long rows. Still, I like it so much that I am going to choose another colorway and do a cowl.

Plymouth - Bazinga
My favorite for a quick infinity scarf 5 out of 5 stars
I have tried other yarns when I get in a pinch and need a quick but high impact gift. Nothing performs like Bazinga. My nail tech gave me a Christmas present ????!!!WTC??? and though I admitted I hadn't one to give her, I promised her a scarf. She loves it and thinks she'll have to hide it from her teenaged daughter.

Muench - Big Baby
Always Comes Through 5 out of 5 stars
I had given up on three other baby blanket yarns. All of them were splitty or had so much cotton that they made my hands hurt and discouraged me. So I returned to my favorite baby blanket yarn: Big Baby!

Schachenmayr original - Lumio
For an acrylic, it's pretty good. 4 out of 5 stars
I didn't fully read the description duh, so I thought I was getting a yarn with a sparkle instead of a reflector. Doesn't matter since I ordered a metallic to put alongside this. I generally don't care for acrylic yarn, but I was using this for a gift for someone who hates taking special care with clothing and accessories. It is prefect for her. I knit a large cowl in the Capri color, which is actually more of a deep turquoise than the photo, but that's OK, too. Not only does she have the bling she requested from the metallic Gold Rush I added to it I got it from a competitor since JBW doesn't carry metallic yarns., but she can also use her cowl at night as a deterrent to getting run over by cyclists while walking on the track at night in January and February. Win!

Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
Soft as a baby's bottom 5 out of 5 stars
As soft as this yarn is, you would think that it would fall apart. Not so. I felted this into a purse for a co-worker and now everyone wants one. I'm sorry I had to felt it but at the time it was the only feltable wool in the right color in my LYS. I ran out and they had no more, so of course I went to JBW! Love ya'll!

Madelinetosh - Tosh Chunky
Haven't Used Yet but Love It 5 out of 5 stars
This was emergency yarn ordered when I thought another yarn was out of stock from another company. The other came in, so I used that, but I will use this yarn. The only reason I'm not using it immediately is that I did two other Christmas gifts with this color in different yarns - one was a huge sweater - and I'm sick of the color right now. Maybe this fall I'll do another infinity scarf.

Trendsetter - Cherie
Beautiful for accessories 4 out of 5 stars
I've not knit with this yarn yet due to an inflamed tendon, but it will be perfect for a potato chip scarf for the fall. Cooler climates will find it perfect for summer scarves, but here, it's already 92 and I want NOTHING around my neck - not even a small necklace!
