    I love the new yarns but my three favorites would have to be Johanne, Revel, and Bamtastic. In fact I like all the colorways available in those lines. My favorite would have to be Johanne “Oxford”. Would love to make a shawl for myself out of it.

    The Revel by Grignasco would certainly be the choice I would make . . . .the Caribbean and/or Denims are favorites.

    Wow – all these yarns sound wonderful! I would love to work with any of them, but I am especially attracted to Monte Donegal Hand-dyed for its colors and Bamtastic for its non-wool fiber content (though I’d love to see some darker/adult colors in it)

    I love the Johanne…if that is the only color it comes in; I would still love it.

    I have the Revel, and it’s amazing!! I’ve had a couple of customers who have held it together with another yarn, the most spectacular one so far was with Linen Concerto… the drape of the linen, with the halo, fuzz, and color of the Revel – OMG, as the kids say nowadays :)
