Plymouth - Women's Accessory Patterns
Beautiful shawl, sadly .. 4 out of 5 stars
.. not charted. Beauty = 5 stars, no chart = 3 stars -- 5+3=8 divided by 2 = 4. I know, not fair to the designer but a rating should also reflect the customer's experience. JBW made me whole, thank you very much. If my rating helps to distinguish future pattern purchases it will have done its job!

Malabrigo - Worsted Merino Samples
Swatches - and again: Swatches 5 out of 5 stars
Malabrigo's Worsted Merino comes in beautiful colors with all the merino characteristics. Since I no longer live in Reno I collect the samples to help me decide colors BUT 3-4 samples make a great swatch!

Madelinetosh - Tosh Merino Light Samples
Test runs! 5 out of 5 stars
Eventually you will know how merino light will behave, I use it for my color selection. JBW is one of the few yarn shops that offer such a huge Tosh inventory, sadly, I no longer live in Reno so collecting the Samples is a great way to get a feel for the colors. REMEMBER that they do vary between the many Tosh yarns, your Vintage will most likely not be the same shade as this sample.

Dena Designs - Pretty Little Things
Slightly different than photo 5 out of 5 stars
Fabric isn't being sold much longer so moot point - My fabric was slightly different than photo. My central diamons were yellow, not purple, and the losenge line was olive not rust. But it looked just as nice so no biggie. Shame no more fabric being sold. It feels different than the stuff I get in regular fabric stores.

Plymouth - Worsted Merino Superwash
Fabulous Yarn 5 out of 5 stars
Great colors, great stitch definition, so soft never ever knots. Plus machine washable & dryable - who could ask for more? My favorite worsted ever! Love it! And Jimmy Beans ships so promptly. Jimmy's needs to replenish their stock of this and the yarn overall needs to be better publicized.

Zitron - Savanna Zitron
I can't buy enough!!! 5 out of 5 stars
I was able to see and touch this yarn at my LYS, but they didn't have enough skeins, or variety of colors, on hand for my needs. They told me that this brand was being discontinued, which broke my heart. It is absolutely the best blend of fibers I've ever worked with - soft and pliable, holds crochet stitches beautifully, and has great definition and drape for a #3 weight size, using G thru J size hooks, so I wanted more. I'm familiar with many, many yarn websites, none of which sold this brand. I hadn't heard of JWB, so I did a Web search for Zitron, which thankfully! led me to Jimmy Wool Beans. I ordered quite a few skeins, in different colors again, thank you JWB for all the choices!, told my Ravelry buddies, and before I knew it, my order was sent within days! I'm thrilled with the yarn AND with JWB! They've been wonderful to work with and very, very helpful. A big YAY! for JWB for both yarn choices AND customer service!
