Blue Sky Fibers - Organic Cotton
Lovely colors and hand, but knots unacceptable! 3 out of 5 stars
I bought this yarn based on many positive reviews and because it's one of the only cotton worsted yarns in these beautiful, saturated colors. It's soft as heck, too. But at this price, it should NOT have knots in it. I purchased six skeins and only one was knot-free. Just not acceptable. Also, though I did know this when I purchased, I do think any cotton that's going to be used for blankets and outerwear really ought to be machine-washable.

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Worsted
Soft & wonderful 5 out of 5 stars
A delight to knit with. I prefer the semisolids because the variegates tend to pool more than I care for. The colors are vibrant and the result is squishy soft. Machine washability is a big plus, too!

Freia Fine Handpaints - Ombre Sport
lovely colors 5 out of 5 stars
I purchased this yarn with a specific pattern in mind and I was not disappointed! The striping is fabulous, and I had no problems knitting with it. Wish Jimmy Beans slot the worsted version.

Manos Del Uruguay - Wool Clasica Space-Dyed
Beautiful colors but.. 2 out of 5 stars
...the yarn is EXTREMELY "thick & thin". And I mean thin to the point of being like embroidery thread. I bought 3 skeins in different colors and only wound one skein, so don't know if the other two are as bad, but I can't imagine trying to knit with the first one. Bummer!
