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.

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.

Classic Elite - Classic Silk
Average, ho-hum yarn 3 out of 5
Not impressed with this yarn. I don't really like working with cotton because I find it a little tedious on the hands but was hoping the silk would give it a nicer, smoother touch, but alas, it does not. I do, however, like the soft, muted color and the slight tweedy, rustic look. Although I haven't completely finished this sweater CEY Open Cardi I think there is enough silk to give it a nice drape. It is a nice weight for summer. I purchased this yarn on wool watchers which I'm very glad for because I would not pay full price for this yarn.

Universal Yarns - Classic Chunky
WHAT A BARGAIN 5 out of 5
I used this yarn to crochet a very heavy, warm afghan and I'm very pleased with the finished project. I think it is perfect for home items such as afghans, pillows, stuffed toys, etc., but I don't know if I would like it for garments. It does feel soft in the skein but you can feel the acrylic as it's being worked up. That's fine for home items but not so fine for something next to the skin. Perhaps someone else can testify to its use in clothing. I used 13 skeins for a throw sized afghan worked up in a woven stitch on a K hook. It's heavy, but I really like it. Out of the 13 skeins, 2 had a single knot - not bad at all. The yarn itself was evenly dense, was not splitty, and had a even color throughout. To sum it up, I think this an excellent yarn for your home craft items.

Cascade - Cascade 220 Superwash Sport
Very nice 4 out of 5
Purchased this yarn for a shawlette and hat for my daughter. Soft enough to wear next to the skin and has good stitch definition. I would purchase this yarn again without hesitation. I wish, however, that Cascade would take the 220 out of the name. I assumed it had 220 yarns like their worsted weight, but it only has 136 yarns forcing me to quickly order 2 more skeins and pay a second shipping.
