Colinette - Jitterbug
Beautiful yarn 5 out of 5
I used this yarn on a shawl, teaming it with Malabrigo Boticelli Red. The tans in this yarn are exquisite: reminds me of chinchilla fur. Reds blend from lovely pink to deep brn red. Yarn worked up beautifully, soft, and doesn't split.

Cascade - Cotton Club
Easy to knit 4 out of 5
This yarn knitted up very nicely and was pleasant to knit with although it unplies very quickly if you have to rip back. That is why I gave the yarn 4 stars. It has a lovely sheen and drape. Blocking was just OK. The stitches did not seem to even out completely, but the sweater cabling had very nice definition. I have not laundered it yet to see how it holds ups. I used the yarn to knit a toddler sweater so it will be put through its paces!

Queensland Collection - Merino Spray
Great yarn 5 out of 5
I made a shawl with this yarn and am extremely pleased with it. The drape is incredible and the shawl will shape anyway that I want it to go. I can also wear it like a large scarf because the yarn is so flexible and light. It is very soft and comfortable next to my next neck and soothingly warm. It blocked well and dried quicly. While knitting I had to change needles to a bamboo circular because the wooden Harmony needles that I started with were too slick and the points too sharp. The yarn will separate fairly easily while knitting but unplying of the yarn is not a problem. I highly recommend this yarn.
