Swans Island - EcoWash DK
Simply the best 5 out of 5
There are just no negatives with this yarn. Beautiful hand, gorgeous colors, and outstanding quality. If I were limited to knit with only one brand of yarn for the rest of my life, Swans Island would be my choice.

Malabrigo - Lace Baby Merino
Not greatly impressed 3 out of 5
Purchased several colorways for an infinity cowl that my daughter saw on Purl Soho's site. The colors are very nice, but I wasn't too impressed with how it worked up. The entire cowl was a simple seed stitch which resulted in a slightly fuzzed cowl. Perhaps another stitch would be a better choice for this yarn. My daughter loves it, but there are yarns out there that are much nicer.

Misti Alpaca - 400g High Twist Grab Bags
LUCKY FIND!!! 5 out of 5
Purchased a grab bag of burnt orange and another in red. I'm so very happy I took a chance on these. One has 400 grams about 800 yards, I hope and another with 450 grams about 450 yards. Both are the most beautiful colorways. They look like something you would find hand dyed at fiber fair. With a nice aran weight 4 sts. per inch both will become vests, which are my new favorite item to knit. If you see these again, be quick or I'll bet you to them.

Juniper Moon Farm - Findley
Absolutely lovely yarn 5 out of 5
Beautiful silky smooth yarn that created a stunning lace wrap. It has a nice sheen and the color, bittersweet, is deep and rich. Didn't encounter any knots or unevenness in thickness. Knitting with this yarn is pure joy.

Plymouth - Worsted Merino Superwash
Great yarn 5 out of 5
I substituted this yarn in a pattern that called for Swans Island, and I have no regrets. I used the light gray and it has a soft heather look that is very attractive. It knits up beautifully with a nice stitch definition that's soft and a little squishy. I prefer this yarn over Cascade 220 and will absolutely use it again.

Schoppel Wolle - Zauberball Crazy
Fun Knit 4 out of 5
Just one skein of this yarn made a beautiful shawlette. Each color change is long enough to give a long striping effect instead of quick color changes that end up looking spotty. I was amazed that I did not find a single knot, and the yarn is not splitty nor does it pill. My only fault with this yarn is that it's not really soft. It's not coarse either and it's fine against the skin, but it's not yummy soft.

Elsebeth Lavold - Silky Wool
Fun Knit 4 out of 5
I wanted to be very negative about this yarn because I spent so much time picking little pieces of hay, straw or whatever it was out of each skein. In fact, I couldn't knit a single row without having to stop and pull something out of the fiber, and by the time I finished I swore to myself that I would never use this yarn again. With that said, I would absolutely use this yarn again. The finished sweater is lovely and it's probably my favorite project to date. I knitted a open cardigan called Summer Solstice and the Silky Wool gives it a nice drape and I like its slightly rustic look.

Cascade - Cash Vero DK
Not so sure 3 out of 5
I'm not sure if I would purchase this again. It is soft and the blue is lovely for a baby boy, but the yarn fuzzes a little when knitted up and it's quite light. It almost feels light a fingering weight. I prefer the heavier wight of this yarn.

Noro - Karuta
WOW 4 out of 5
I wanted to see what all the fuss was about when it comes to NORO and now I understand. Although this yarn feels a little scratchy in the skein, it knits up soft. The colors are simply beautiful.
