Crystal Palace - Allegro DK
Very nice yarn 5 out of 5 stars
I made a lace scarf as a gift out of this yarn. It worked up and blocked beautifully. Nice and cozy and warm. Too bad Crystal Palace is no longer producing but the close out price was a good value.

Cascade - North Shore
Wonderful to work with but colors not well represented 4 out of 5 stars
Disappointed that the jewel blue was not as pictured and was such an unacceptable brilliant turquoise I had to order another yarn to get the color I wanted. I was able to use the other color though it was quite different too. Overall this is a good yarn and very easy to work wi

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock
Soft, knits up beautifully! 5 out of 5 stars
I made a lace cowl/shawl for my daughter-in-kaw’s Birthday. The color changes are beautiful and the yarn was soft and very easy to handle. And as always, shipping was very fast.

Cascade - Pacific
Soft, good quality, knits up well 4 out of 5 stars
The color is really beautiful and this yarn is a good value for an acrylic/wool blend. I've had lots of problems with washable wool not holding its shape and have gone back to a blend that has just enough wool for warmth. There was minor stranding and more flaws in the yarn than I would have liked that had to be cut out but overall a good quality yarn I would definitely use again.
