This is the best stuff out there. I have found that it is so heavenly to knit with. It is rather addicting. It is also very hard to get ahold of. Right now the producers have stated that they are out. It is far cheaper to go through their website than to pay what the yarn stores want for it.

Gorgeous yarn, but be warned that it's not meant to be knit up for frequently-used items as it tends to pill (rather quickly).

People said it was soft, but I thought, "How soft could it be?" It's very very soft. Very. I'm knitting a hat with my first skein and it's so wonderful that I'm already looking to buy more. It will not surprise me if, as the other commentor says, it pills a lot. But I have this feeling that I'm going to be so in love with the softness that I'm not going to care.

I always thought I would never be able to wear anything made from wool yarn (or knit with it) because of my sensitive skin, but Malabrigo's merino is quite possibly the world's most amazing yarn. It's soft (so, soooo soft), the colors are gorgeous and it's wonderful to knit with. Right now it's my first choice for any and every applicable project I start and I've got a sizeable stash built up. 10/10

I was recently gifted with a skein of this in the colrway "velvet grapes" (I'm not sure if this is available anymore.)It is so beautiful and it is the softest yarn I hve ever felt. It is like butter! I'm casting on for a scarf right now, and when I'm done, I'll order some more.
