Cascade - Heritage Silk Paints
Fuzzy. Frustrating. 1 out of 5 stars
This yarn looked so beautiful in the skein. I have knitted with other fingering yarns that have the same percentages of materials, the same ply, etc. This yarn by far is the least forgiving of any yarn after ripping out or tinking. I am a very patient, careful ripper. This yarn just can't take it. My whole project is fuzzy. It was a very simple mostly garter stitch pattern, but the lacy parts are almost hidden by the fuzz. I should have trusted my gut and stopped knitting with this yarn. Instead, I forged ahead, thinking that surely it would be fine when I finished. While knitting, the yarn was incredibly splitty. This is not my idea of a yarn to knit with if all you want to do is sit and knit and have a peaceful and satisfying knitting experience. Maybe I got a bad skein and bad mojo. But, I will never buy this yarn again. I invested several hours on my project and regret having forced myself to finish it. This yarn and I did NOT hit it off!

Crystal Palace - Mochi Plus
soft and pretty 4 out of 5 stars
This yarn is nice and cuddly soft. The colors are soothing and restful. The only problem is that the yarn isn't wound to itself very tightly. Is that what single ply is? You only get one chance to frog it, then it starts looking really tattered. If I were a better knitter, this would be a non-issue. I haven't completed my project so I don't know how durable this yarn is. I'm thinking it would make a wonderfully toasty hat!
