    Alpaca and Cotton w/ linen, yum.

    I bought some Alpaca Cloud for the first time and just started making a shawl with it. It’s so soft and great to work with.

    I love the cotlin have a top I made in woodland sage 6 years ago that still looks like new – It is so comfortable 😀

  4. Ginny / April 3, 2014

    I love all four yarns. Hard to pick.

    I’m a serious fan of Comfy. CotLin is really sturdy, and is good to use for certain things (like market bags) but Comfy is way more versatile and has really awesome colors.

      agreed. i bought cotlin for charity baby socks and while i love the yarn, it’s a bit too sturdy for the project. 🙂

    I’ve been wondering what to order next, with spring on my mind. I’m thinking it will be Comfy, after this long run of wool knitting. Maybe I’ll be fortunate enough to win some :)!

  7. Linda / April 3, 2014

    I’m really disappointed that I didn’t get an email or chance to vote for rounds 2-4. 🙁 Glad to get in again on round 5!

  8. Rachel Massaro / April 3, 2014

    Was a big fan of Billow sad to see that it was knocked out! Can’t wait to see who the final match up is!

    Being a huge wool fan I am pulling for Wool of the Andes. I do a LOT of felting and it felts beautifully and is a perfect choice for all the small projects I love to knit. When I need 100% wool, I don’t thing of anything else! From anyone!

  10. Vanessa R. / April 3, 2014

    I am a fool for alpaca. I love its softness and supple hand. Comfy is also a great one for the little kids. Soft, non-pilling and easy to care for. What’s not to love?

  11. Peggy / April 3, 2014

    Can’t wait to see the FINAL RESULTS:)

    Comfy has become my go to yarn. I made 2 blankets for my grandson (4wks old) and a little bolero jacket and just finished a little hoody with it. When I tell my daughter what I’m knitting for him she asks “is it that really soft yarn you made the blankets with?” And she’s really picky about how things feel.

  13. Roxanne Stevens / April 3, 2014

    Definitely a hard choice.

  14. Tammy / April 3, 2014

    Here in Oklahoma, there are usually not that many cold days in winter when we can wear worsted wool. Comfy has become my “go to” yarn for sweaters that I can wear year round. It washes nicely too!

  15. Ashtan A. / April 3, 2014

    Such hard choices!!!

  16. MaryG / April 3, 2014

    love Cotlin, altho Comfy is nice too. But WotA is the best of all …
