Koigu - KPM Solid
Great 5 out of 5
Wonderfully swishy and springy to work with. Very similar feel to MadelineTosh sport!

Madelinetosh - Tosh Merino DK
Mad about MadelineTosh! 5 out of 5
It's always a treat to work with this manufacturer! The depth and colors of the single ply's are especially unmatched and just gorgeous. I only recommend really familiarizing yourself with any pattern you plan to use this yarn with because like with all yarn including this one, it does tend to unfelt a bit when you have to rip out. Also, I've noticed that the felting method of joining two ends of this yarn isn't the smoothest nor strongest.

Bryspun - Rosewood Cable Needles
Lovely! 5 out of 5
I purchased these without the slightest experience in cable knitting and upon receiving them I immediately dove into learning simply because I wanted to use them! The wonderful slightly pointier end very much helps to grab some of the more difficult loops and the smooth wave design in the middle as well as the ultra smooth texture of the wood makes these a delightful treat,

Lorna's Laces - Solemate
Disappointed 1 out of 5
Easily my least favorite yarn in this weight/ply/fiber. I've never worked with yarn made up of merino wool I really should have payed more attention to the 55% that was so unpleasant to the touch. If the result of my work had been attractive I might have continued - but the color dye and something about the way it changes from one hue to another, in the end I wasted money, time, and am disappointed with such a highly rated yarn . I've decided on a softer yarn and now I'm left with a couple hanks of this ugly yarn. I doubt I'll ever gamble and purchase an unfamiliar yarn based on reviews again.
