Shibui Alpaca 5 out of 5
Lovely yarn, very easy to work with, glad I bought this. The only thing--the photo is misleading. Fjord is actually a greenish blue, not the pewter blue in the photo.

Snap Bag 3 out of 5
I thought I'd try a bag with snaps, but after using it for a bit, I prefer a bag with a zipper.

Rowan Felted Tweed the best 5 out of 5
I've used quite a few yarns for sweaters, but I think this is just about the best. Feels great while knitting, doesn't split,lovely to wear. I've used it for a multi-colored hat, a sweater, two vests. Will use it again.

Nice Yarn, but beware 3 out of 5
I made a pair of fingerless mitts with this yarn the pattern had yarn overs and right and left decreases. The color was Malachite, a beautiful green, because my friend wanted green mitts. The yarn was easy to work with, didn't split, had good stitch definition. However, the skein I had bled, a lot. My bamboo needles turned green. Not the best for mitts--sweaty palms will turn green. I'm still soaking the finished mitts in vinegar, hoping for the best. I have several different varieties of madelinetosh in my stash, will probably buy it again, but I'll test it first.

Wonderful Sock Yarn 5 out of 5
I love this yarn for socks--I've made three pairs using it. I've made socks from other yarns as well--I'm a beginning sock knitter, but I've made about 8 pairs now. This yarn is easy to work with (except that it twists a lot as you're knitting), I get the gauge I need--I use dps #1, and, for some reason, I have less problem with ladders when purling, perhaps because of the firmness of the yarn twist. The best part is wearing the socks. These are the most comfortable socks to wear--I wear clogs and loafers. I wash the socks in the washing machine, using a mesh bag, on the gentle cycle. I've had no pilling problems or shrinking. There are many wonderful sock yarns, and I want to try as many different kinds as possible, but this is my favorite so far.
