Schachenmayr select - Extra Soft Merino Cotton
Lovely hand, yarn 5 out of 5
I bought it on a closeout sale, sad to say this won't be available any longer. It is a touch splitty at first, but once accustomed to handling it, I was able to overcome that. Soft and lovely, knits up very evenly and has a soft drape. Wish I'd bought more!!

Regia - Galaxy Saturn Color
As usual, Regia is a workhorse 5 out of 5
I buy Regia to make socks for my family and friends. It's hard wearing, and love the fabulous variegated color families. No worries about how they may wash or handle it, either: It can take the punishment of machine washing and drying. Love it!

Regia - Silk
Nice choice for dressy, feminine socks 5 out of 5
a very light fingering weight yarn, it knits up into a decidedly feminine fabric that has a delicate sheen and a fine hand.

Regia - Color 6ply
As Always, Regia is a great sock choice 5 out of 5
Regia is a great choice for HARD WEARING socks. It softens up beautifully in the wash and wears like iron while looking beautiful.

Cascade - Heritage
Love it for socks 5 out of 5
It's a lighter fingering weight sock yarn, but it knits up beautifully and washes well. Just don't subject it to the dryer!! Great for colorwork, too, as it comes in a bunch of colors. I am confident enough of this yarn to knit gifts to be given with pride.

Crystal Palace - Taos Wool
Knits Up Lovely 4 out of 5
A tad fuzzy, but it knits up into beautiful distinctive fabric. Very soft and cozy after a wash, blooms nicely.

Prism Yarns - Merino Mia
Gorgeous Yarn 5 out of 5
Merino Mia has a nice tight twist, shows stitch definition beautifully, and is a joy to knit with. One of my very favorite yarns ... the colorways are lush and sophisticated too. Worth every penny.

Smooth! 3 out of 5
Not as good as the last couple of years issues, but you may find something quick to make for a holiday gift.
