Isager - Alpaca 2
I love this 5 out of 5 stars
Isager yarn is some of the best I've ever used in 50+ years of knitting. It has a lovely hand, the yardage is good, it wears well, it doesn't pill and the colors are just lovely. Everything I've made from this yarn has turned out beautifully. The colors are lovely. It's just a delight to knit. The fact that it's Danish and I spent much of my childhood in Denmark has nothing to do with it. .

Berroco - Ultra Alpaca Light
love this 5 out of 5 stars
I am a huge fan of Ultra alpaca. I love the worsted and I love the light and the ultra light too for that matter. They both have a wonderful hand, they make beautiful long lasting garments sweaters in my case, there is lovely stitch definition for cables. And the yardage and price are great. I am so hooked on these yarns. I've been knitting for over 40 years, and these are some of the only yarns that I repeatedly buy. They are marvelous. The only thing I am sad about is that I would like more colors.

Isager - Alpaca 2
I'd forgotten how much I love this stuff 5 out of 5 stars
It's been a while since I knit with it. But as soon as I picked it up I remembered why I adore this yarn. It has a beautiful hand and is a delight to knit. The fabric itself is light and soft and ultimately wearable. Now that I've been reminded, I'm sure I'll buy more soon.

Isager - Alpaca 2
love this 5 out of 5 stars
I'm currently making my fourth sweater with this yarn. I've also made two scarves and I've got plans for a fith sweater. It is a wonderful yarn. Good hand, drapes beautifully, perfect for lace stitches and does nicely with garter as well as SS. It really is beautiful yarn. It's one of my favorites.

Addi - Addi Turbo Circular
love Addi's!!!!!!!!!!!! 5 out of 5 stars
I absolutely love Addi turbo needles. They are comfortable to hold, the joins are ALWAYS smooth and the cable is never stiff. I also love their lace needles. All the above, but the needle is more pointed and it saves the yarn from catching. There is also just the slightest drag on the lace needles so you don't worry som much about looser lace stitches dropping off. Addi needles are wonderful. Period.

Dolce Handknits - Dolce Handknits
5 out of 5 stars
I made this pattern with Manos Del Uraguay merino-silk blend and it's been wonderful to wear. The yarn itself is a dlegiht to use and the sweater is soft against the skin and looks lovely. I did I-cord ties and it worked well.

Debbie Bliss - Rialto DK
very nice yarn 5 out of 5 stars
I just finished a little guersney style tunic for my great nephew in Norway. I'll take it to him when we go next month. This yarn knits up so evenly and nicely. It has a lovely hand and a beautiful drape. I would use it for just about any DK patern and be pleased.
