Spark - Exclusive JBW Stitch Markers
Terrific 5 out of 5 stars
I think that these might be the best stitch markers on the market. Besides being pretty and well made, they slide easily over the needles and stay in place. I love them.

Muench - Touch Me Lux
Treating the yarn 5 out of 5 stars
The trick to working with this yarn is to throw it in the washing machine and dryer. This prevents any worming. The resulting fabric feels like velvet. I also recommend using garter stitch or cables as I have had experience with the final fabric biasing when knitting in stockinette. It is wonderful yarn.

Lotus - Mimi Shades
Not mink 1 out of 5 stars
Be aware that there is NO mink in this yarn. It is a combination of angora, wool, and rayon/nylon. The yarn is soft but not what it claims to be.

Not mink 1 out of 5 stars
Trendsetter, which distributes this yarn, has publicly stated that there is actually no mink in this yarn and has pulled it. It is a combination of angora, wool and rayon/nylon.

The Sexy Knitter - Knitter's Tool Tins
Disappointing 1 out of 5 stars
Nice idea but the scissors were too blunt to cut yarn and the crochet hook too small to hold comfortably and I have small hands. The stitch holders were nice, though.

Madelinetosh - Prairie Short Skeins
5 out of 5 stars
I am very pleased with this yarn. It knits up easily with no pilling and holds its shape well for lace-work. And the colors cannot be beat!

Fibersphere - Fibersphere
Terrific Product 5 out of 5 stars
The sphere allows the yarn to flow out of the ball smoothly and with no tangles. I love it.

Sweet Grass Wool - Mountain Silk 2 ply
Terrible 1 out of 5 stars
Of all the yarns I have bought through JB this is the only one with which I have been dissatisfied. There were a good 5 knots in the one skein I bought. The yarn was much rougher than I was led to believe from the description since it was spun so tightly. The silk added nothing to the product. Overall a big disappointment.
