Filatura Di Crosa - Zara
Not strong enough for baby 3 out of 5 stars
I enjoyed the yarn while I was knitting with itgood stitch definition, soft to the touch and lovely colour selectionBUT the baby blanket I made with it has broken in several places in the washing process. Baby items get the roughest wear with multiple washings. I'd use this yarn again but for items that will be hand washed.

Rowan - Pure Wool Worsted Superwash
Great Colours to choose from! 4 out of 5 stars
I'm using this yarn for the Kaffe Fassett KAL afghan project and I love the colours. However, the yarn itself is not the softest yarn I've worked with. It's an afghan to cuddle up with so I wish it was softerit's just a teeny bit itchy.

Spud & Chloe - Sweater
Lovely feel to the wool/cotton blend 5 out of 5 stars
Every single stitch has to pass through your hands so you might as well choose a yarn that feels good to you as well as considering the finished product. Sweater by Spud and Chloƫ is just such a pleasure. I made a baby blanket in Watermelon for the washability and I was sad when the project was finished because it was so lovely to work with. My only regret is that it's rather hard to find. Now that I know JBW carries it, I will choose it again and again.

Malabrigo - Rios
Love Rios--Beautiful Colours 4 out of 5 stars
This is my go-to yarn for worsted weight hats, fingerless gloves, and funky baby sweaters. Rios washes up very nicely, though it does pill a wee bit with machine washing. Cold water/delicate cycle and hang to dry except for a quick fluff in the dryer with minimal heat just to bounce back the shape of the garment which stretches quite a bit when wet. The lovely feel and squishiness of the yarn makes this little bit of effort well worth it.

Anzula - Cricket
Cricket is a FAVOURITE 5 out of 5 stars
There isn't enough room here to tell you all how much I love this yarn. The feel is gorgeous, the finished product is gorgeous, the colours are so subtly variegated and the choices of colour are fantastic. I will buy this yarn for my DK projects again and again. The small amount of nylon helps with wear but doesn't compromise the hand.

Debbie Bliss - Baby Cashmerino
Baby Cashmerino has a lovely hand 4 out of 5 stars
I've used this yarn on occasion and I find it's a pleasure to hold and work with. Colours are great for baby projects toosome classic heritage and some bright modern. I didn't give the full five stars because it can be a bit splitty and about 1 in 5 skeins are somewhat knotty in my experience.
