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

              Comments about Malabrigo Worsted:

              I'm knitting a full length, belted robe with Malabrigo in "Sealing Wax". Simple stockinette stitch looks beautiful with this yarn. Love the color-- a muted red. I wanted a yarn that wasn't too heavy, but that would be warm. And, it had to be soft. I think I made the perfect choice.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Lightning fast delivery-- yay, WEBS! It was very difficult to find 14 skeins of Malabrigo in the same color. How great that WEBS is so well stocked! In addition, they told me I would be buying from two different dye lots, but assured me that the color match was good. They were absolutely right, I can't tell the difference between the two lots.

                      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
