I fully concur with all the previous reviewers, and just add a few lines here on the felting quality of this yarn. Knitting it, initially, you're struck by how soft and pleasant this yarn is, it's beautiful drape, and luxurious feel. I just happened to have this pattern for a felted hat, so I wanted to give it a go, to see if I can figure it out, and if this yarn works well for felting. It took a few rather aggressive rounds in the washer and dryer before the hat had shrunk to its intended size, but what a nice hat it is! The softness of the yarn carried beautifully through, and the colors blended well. There are easier yarns that felt much more willingly, I'm sure, but if you want to add softness and delightful hand-dyed colors to your project, this is where I'd start.

This yarn is incredibly soft but the pilling and shedding was excessive. I returned it after knitting the back of a sweater. This knitted piece almost appeared matted. I have seen pictures of the knitted garments in this wool and the amount of pilling was dramatic so this was not an isolated case. Best use is for felting

        I have yet to use this yarn, so I can't comment on its performance, but it's a nice weight, wooly and beautiful. I'm anxious to begin a project with it.

          I cannot use the two different skeins for the pillow. I hoped someone would have checked and sent two skeins close in color...mine was completely different. I have not had any issues prior to this order. I will continue to order but will have to be more careful in my selections

            From now on: for small accessories only.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery was prompt and the yarn was in good condition.

            Malabrigo is a beautiful yarn, sadly, I cannot depend on getting what I need when I need it. Wouldn't it be better to have one vendor who sells all of their yarn and wouldn't it be better if they dyed it in more than a few hanks/dye lot?

            Beautiful as it is, I will not plan the use of Malabrigo for any future projects. WARNING: Madelintosh is about to meet the same fate.

            The yarn deserves a solid 5 stars which does me no good if I cannot get it, hence, 3 sad stars.

            Would I recommend this yarn to a friend? If a sufficient supply was on hand I would do so in a heartbeat, otherwise, sadly "no".

                Comments about Malabrigo Worsted:

                I crocheted a scarf that was light weight in crocodile stitch. However, I am unhappy with the quality of this yarn. Each skein had many knots and snags. It required me to snip the untidy snags and knots so that I had to re-join the yarn to continue my project. I will never purchase Malabrigo again.

                      This is my first time knitting with Malabrigo worsted. I love it! It is so soft and yummy feeling ! I couldn't wait to cast on. I am knitting a cowl with this yarn and it is knitting up quickly and beautifully. It will feel so nice around my neck. I will definitely buy more of this yarn.
