We've linked to patterns and projects that are available to purchase/view elsewhere.  Bowland DK truly is an ECY favourite - it's super-soft, smooth, and silky. It's ideal for such a wide range of knitting/crochet projects - being machine washable plus next-to-skin soft means it's perfect for babies...
