Rowan - Cashsoft DK RYC
Not bad, but so not worth the extra $ 3 out of 5 stars
Let me start out by saying that this is NOT a bad yarn! It is soft and does come in some really lovely colors, and has a bit of a sheen which is really attractive. The reason I'm only giving this 3 stars is for value I honestly don't think this yarn is worth spending a little extra for. It's nice enough, but not addictively awesome as I've come to expect from specialty yarns. I'd recommend Sublime baby cashmere silk instead, it's MUCH nicer to work with.

Debbie Macomber - Cashmere Fleur De Lys
SO soft and comfy! 5 out of 5 stars
I bought this yarn to pad an order yay for free shipping, and I'm so glad I did! It's super soft and has a nice loft, which made it work up a little bulkier than the worsted it is labeled. I actually ordered more in another color, and wish there was more in stock!

Sublime - Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK
Really nice to work with 5 out of 5 stars
I used this yarn to make a pair of slippers for my father, and I really loved it. I liked that it felt both substantial and a little silky, and it had great stitch definition. One thing I did notice is that it can lose some twist depending on how you work with it, but it wasn't too much of a problem except when making adjustable rings. I would highly recommend this, and look forward to working with it again!

Berroco - Versa
LOVE this! 5 out of 5 stars
I bought this yarn in Zephyr for a baby boy hoodie, and I have to say it is absolutely perfect. The colors are rich and gorgeous, and look even more fantastic knitted up. There is a fantastic depth of color to this yarn, and it is lovely and smooshy in texture! This is double-stranded yarn each strand is separately dyed and is made up of a ribbon-like cord. It's not what I expected, but I love it nonetheless. Also I will note I don't think this quite works up as bulky I'd say it's just barely heavier than worsted.

Crystal Palace - Puffin
Great yarn 5 out of 5 stars
I ordered this to use for a bunny blanket buddy, and it worked perfectly for that project. It works up thick and soft but isn't at all fuzzy, which makes for a great baby project. The construction of this yarn is really interesting it's a very long narrow strip of fleece that is occasionally joined by a small seam, which actually is much easier to hide than a knot join. I would definitely use this again, it's really fun and interesting to work with.

S. Charles Collezione - Tivoli
Ok, but not fantastic. 3 out of 5 stars
This yarn was just OK. The color ʋlue) was nice, and it did have a lovely sheen, but to me the yarn just felt coarse. I imagine it will be quite itchy to wear. I gave this a three rather than a two, though, because it does look nice worked up. Overall, I wouldn't buy it again, but it was worth a try.

Debbie Bliss - Eco Baby
LOVED it! 5 out of 5 stars
This is definitely my favorite cotton I've worked with so far. I ordered it in pea green, which is absolutely gorgeous, and I'm planning ordering a few more colors soon! The yarn itself is nice and soft and sleek, and has a gorgeous sheen. I especially loved how it was spun using many thread-sized plies rather than a few medium strands. It gave this fantastic stitch definition. You need to be a little careful as SOMETIMES (not often, but occasionally) it loses a little twist in the working, and it's easy to split when that happens. Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend this yarn, and it will be my go-to baby cotton.

Ella Rae - Milky Soft
Decent 3 out of 5 stars
This is definitely a better cotton than you can find in most craft stores (those always feel very dry and raspy to me), but it is definitely not a pima. It is decently soft and works up fine. There's no particular sheen, but the color is good. I don't love it, but I don't hate it either. It's decent for the price, but I far prefer Debbie Bliss' Baby Eco.

Classic Elite - Liberty Wool Print
Great color, terrible pooling 2 out of 5 stars
I have been looking for yarns with interesting color combinations, and I thought I might have found it with this. I bought a skein of ȯlower garden" and tried to use it for several projects (hat, scarf, booties). The yarn itself was wonderfully soft and springy and worked like a dream. Similarly, a lot of the individual colors were BEYOND gorgeousʊ pale aqua and saturated strawberry pink were the best). However, thanks to some of the other colors included in the skein (muddy green-brown, dull red and mustardy yellow), the effect of the nice colors was ruined. It would also have been nice to have a predictable repeating color progression, but what I got was a LOT of each color once, then a sloppy join (two in one small skein!) to another segment starting with different colors. It just didn't look good. That being said, I gave this two stars rather than one because the concept is good, the yarn is wonderful and some of the individual colors are outstanding. The finished product just needs a little tweaking. I'm sorry it didn't work out, I really love the skeined look of these yarns!
