Louisa Harding Millais is a single ply blend of wool and acrylic in a bulky weight. Millais twists together several subtle color shades to create a classy, heathery yarn. It's perfect for cozy garments and accessories. At 3 stitches to the inch, it will fly off your needles too, so it's great for a last minute project! Made in Italy
The yarn is a lovely color and it knits evenly. It's a little splity and it feels a bit like plastic. After soaking it softens up a bit. It's not horrible and I'll use it to make the sweater I intened it for however I think it's very over priced for what you get. The sale price is better but the yardage is rediculously low. And it does feel fake. No more acrylic blends for me.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
I made 2 gifts using Millais--long cowls. Also made a short one for myself. Loved how the finished projects looked. LOVE the color shading in this yarn. There are several shades and colors in it. Knits up very quickly. The only things I don't know is how it wears, as the 2 projects were gifts and just finished mine.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
