Crystal Palace - Danube Aran
Jardin reminds me of dryer lint 2 out of 5
I ordered 5 skeins in this brand. They are listed as bulky and the photos represent the colors as very bright and vibrant. They are dull, thin, and fragile, pulling apart with the very slightest tension I knit fairly loosly the colors and the texture remind me of dryer lint.

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Worsted
A lovely yarn! 5 out of 5
I purchased this yarn in the Farwell colorway to test swatch and received the Christmas in Paris LE colorway as a gift to make a sweater. My yarn was shipped very promptly and well-packed. The yarn's plies are moderately to tightly spun some areas are a little looser, but overall the spin and ply is good with little or no splitting. The yarn has very good stitch definition and bounce and the wool is soft and easy on your hands - no scratchiness. The Farwell colorway I tested did bleed some color when I gave it a soak and a block, but the color stayed very bright and the yarn stayed soft. I'm very happily knitting my gift and looking forward to a new sweater!

Crystal Palace - Danube Bulky
fragile and thin throughout 1 out of 5
This was listed as bulky for use with size 10 needles. We'll it is yards and yards of embroidery thread thickness with a few fragile bulky areas. I was knitting on size 7 needles..rows and rows of stringy thread. When I finally got to a bulky spot thickest part was probably dk weight, it pulled apart like a cotton ball. I bought 5 skeins

Dena Designs - Pretty Little Things
Slightly different than photo 5 out of 5
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
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
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!
