James C. Brett - Marble Chunky
5 out of 5 stars
Soft, washable, interesting color changes. I made a cowl and I'm starting a blanket. Good for gifts and people who can't wear wool. It has a unique look not really shiny bur almost luminous.

Juniper Moon Farm - Moonshine
Very soft 5 out of 5 stars
Moonshine is a very soft yarn. It has a nice drape and a slight halo. Nice for longer cowls, scarves, shawls.

Brown Sheep - Lamb's Pride Worsted
Warm 5 out of 5 stars
This is my favorite yarn for winter hats. I use a smaller needle to get a denser fabric and it holds its shape really well. I thought it might be scratchy the first time I touched it, but it softens up a lot.

Crystal Palace - Mini Mochi
Great for entrelac or mitered pattern 5 out of 5 stars
as well as ripples or striping patterns. Very soft with eeally beautiful color combinations. I've used it for shawls mostly. This yarn really grows when you block it so you might block a swatch or make something a little smaller.

Misti Alpaca - Tonos Pima Silk
Soft 5 out of 5 stars
Beautiful tonal colors with subtle shades and lovely soft drape. I used it for a little lacy shawl and it blocked out beautifully.

Plymouth - Encore Tweed
I love tweed 5 out of 5 stars
I knitted a cardigan with this yarn about a year ago. It is soft, has a nice drape. There is some openwork in the pattern Cusco by Cheryl Oberle and I blocked it. It has held the openwork nicely and is very comfortable.
