Plymouth - Encore Worsted
Pleasant to work with and Economical too! 5 out of 5 stars
I've been making stuffed animals for my granddaughters and this yarn is perfect for my needs. The color range is great and it's machine wash/dry. It's pleasant to work with, economical and I haven't found any faults in the yarn.

Knitter's Pride - Nova Cubics Platina Fixed Circular Needles
Second choice but still great needles! 5 out of 5 stars
I prefer the versatility of 3.5 Special Interchangeable needle tips so I can use them with the 16 cords but they are only available in sizes US #6 and up. I love the square needles and the snagless cords never kink up.

Crystal Palace - Allegro Lace
Very Enjoyable 5 out of 5 stars
I really enjoyed everything about this yarn. Tahiti is a beautiful blue with very subtle shading. There were no knots or other annoying imperfections. I've already purchased more!

Berroco - Vintage
A favorite! 5 out of 5 stars
I use this yarn a lot! It doesn't feel or look like it has acrylic in it. It has good wool-like elasticity so it's a pleasure to knit. It machine washes without stretching or shrinking. It has a great color palette for children and adults. It's very rare to find a knot or fault. I have no negative comments at all.

Plymouth - Galway Worsted
Too scratchy. 2 out of 5 stars
Lapis Heather I have a mixed review on this yarn. I love the color, price, and yardage. But, I find it too scratchy to wear next to the skin, even as a scarf and I'm not really sensitive to wool. Even washing and conditioning didn't help.

Classic Elite - Mohawk Wool
A pleasure to use. 5 out of 5 stars
Lovely yarn to knit with! Produced a light wgt but warm baby pullover with less than 1 skein Little Pine Gansey pattern. Excellent stitch definition after blocking especially for small cables and knit/purl patterns. I bought 2 skeins and found no knots or flaws of any kind.

Koigu - American Merino
Very pleased in every way. 5 out of 5 stars
Color JB 1531. This yarn works up very evenly with great stitch definition. It feels a bit rough in the skein but softens nicely after washing. It also retains it's shape well, no stretching. I'm very happy with my finished project. Thanks JBW!

Cascade - Hollywood
Great yarn for the right project! 5 out of 5 stars
Needed an easy care yarn for appropriate for a Mermaid Baby Cocoon. The Malibu Blue was the perfect color and the iridescent thread really put it over the top! I found it easy to work with although it doesn't feel very soft. It becomes soft enough for baby skin after washing. It does relax in water but machine dry on low brings it right back into shape. Couldn't be happier :

HiKoo - Simplicity
Soft, great st definition & holds up to machine wash/dry! 5 out of 5 stars
Used as a DK wgt for a baby dress. Very easy to work with and beautiful stitch definition. So soft! Easy care. I machine washed and used the dryer to dry to damp and my gauge didn't change a bit. I dislike superwash yarns that stretch and become limp when they hit the water so I'm really impressed! The Iris Blue and White look gorgeous together!

Classic Elite - Cerro
Great yarn 5 out of 5 stars
I really like this yarn! I'm making a baby sweater and I'm very pleased with the smoothness and wonderful stitch definition. It's very soft with a light sheen. It's one cotton that does not hurt my hands even after hours of knitting. I'll be re-ordering!
