Sublime - Egyptian Cotton DK
Firm cotton yarn. Hold a complicated stich beautifully 5 out of 5 stars
This is not a soft cotton thread. I am not sure this would be my first choice for something worn next to the skin... a sleeveless over-shell perhaps? This is not a complaint. I will be using my purchase for a crochet handbag that has a complex texture and this yarn will hold up beautifully for the purpose. The color is a greyish soft green with a subtle sheen...very pretty. I look forward to working with it

Muench - String of Pearls (Full Bags)
Very pretty. Fun 4 out of 5 stars
This yarn is bright white and has a soft pearl shimmer to it. The sample piece worked up true for a worsted weight. I will make a vest out of what I have. the vest will look outstanding over a red turtleneck at Christmas, a green turtleneck on St Patty's and over a bright tee shirt any old time.

Muench - Fabu (Full Bags)
Fun. Pretty but not particularly soft 4 out of 5 stars
This accent yarn is fun and pretty. Not intended to be used by itself, I will probably work it double threaded with a main color that matches one of the bobbles or black would do nicely. Because there is a bit of scratchy feel to the yarn, I am not thinking of using it in a piece worn next to the skin. I am thinking of a jacket pattern that I quite liked....

Muench - Cleo (Full Bags)
Not so much... 2 out of 5 stars
This is a fairly loud yarn. The color way is not appealing...and the yarn is stiff and is not intended for complicated stitching - probably not the best choice for crochet in general. I will work it in as an accent yarn and fringe on some pieces, but I am not wowed by it.

Fyberspates - Scrumptious Sport 4-Ply
Delightful to work with! 5 out of 5 stars
I want to make up items in every color. The yarn is soft but hold a crochet stick fairly well. I would not use it for an cable stitch but it did a raised rib fairly well, a soft, but not floppy look. The hand on this yarn is amazing. It is a delight to touch and has a soft shimmer to it. It holds together well while working and is works true to gauge. I wish I could afford to use it more often.
