      I would describe using Latte as knitting with pieces of a cloud. It is so fluffy and soft! Don't use this yarn for any fancy colorwork, though; the fluff can hide elaborate stitch patterns. And if you use the leftover yarn to sew up your seams, be careful not to pull too hard. I had several occasions where my sewig strand actually pulled apart!

      ...I think Tic was referring to the fiber analysis that found this yarn to be 69% acrylic and 31% wool. http://www.cascadeyarns.com/milkproteinfiber.asp It makes me wonder if the bamboo yarn I'm using for my current project is legit.

          I really enjoy working with this yarn. It has a beautiful sheen to it and is very soft. It is stronger than many single ply yarns that I've worked with. Definitely a big fan, I just wish it came in more colors.

                  I'm obsessed w/hats-so i made 4. The are warm, soft and not ichy at all. They do stretch, but hats are easy to handwash and re-block.

                    Comments about Ella Rae Latte:

                    I really like this yarn, but it is not for everyone or every use. It is single ply, and so it will split if you don't watch it, and it pills a little when knit up, but considering the softness, quite tolerable. It has much better stitch definition than I thought it would. It is so soft, but elasticity is good to knit with; colors amazing. BTW, milk protein is casein and is a natural fiber in this yarn; microfiber is a synthetic--cf. other reviewer.

                      This yarn makes beautiful infinity scarves that are warm and feel good against the skin. Because it comes in so many colors I am able to make them in great college colors for students and fans.

                      Love the combination of milk yarn, alpaca and microfiber.
