Shibui Knits - Kavo
Haven't used this yet 3 out of 5 stars
I haven't used this yet, I just got it for nice neutral warp for a new blanket for the dog, which I haven't got to yet because the loom is covered in mohair at the moment. But the Clay color is gorgeous enough I might make myself a beret out of it too.

Rowan - Silkystones
Good colorways - haven't used yet 5 out of 5 stars
I haven't had a chance to use this yet. Although I am much more drawn to solid colors I weave much more than I knit or crochet than to variegated yarns, I liked both of the colorways I purchased quite a lot. Nice blended neutrals. No idea what I'll use it for, but it is very nice and feels strong, very structural, and fairly tough-feeling just holding the balls in hand. That's the linen speaking, it's just about my favorite fiber. I am assuming that whatever I do end up doing with it will feel a bit softer fulled.

Rowan - Creative Linen
Lovely and strong 5 out of 5 stars
I have not yet used this except to cut off a couple of yards to tie something up, but it should be perfect for both warp and weft. The colors are very good. I think it will be the next thing I throw up on the loom after my current mohair twill yes, I really did just use those two words together is finished.

Awesome stuff 5 out of 5 stars
I have not used this yet, but I touch it with alarming frequency. Phydeaux is well worth a visit to their website.

Muench - Cleo (Full Bags)
Makes great woven fabric 5 out of 5 stars
This made a stunning fabric for a short ladies' dinner jacket for mom using a 20/2 gold-toned cotton warp doubled at 7.5. and plain old tabby. I used Cleo color 124? - the copper and beige colorway. I lined it with taff Cleo is NOT a next-to-the-skin yarnand it's lovely. My Necchi sewing machine did kind of hate the project. I can totally see why this could become a crocheter's nightmare as someone else mentioned, especially if stitch definition is important. Now she wants a pair of shoes to match but I don't know where to source soles...
