This is a great yarn when used sport weight (6.5 st/in); soft and machine washes nicely. Unfortunately, the patterns that I chose, the little girls coat and the per body warmerfor girl or boy, are written for a gauge of 4.5 st/in and require using the yarn doubled. When doubled and at the correct gauge, it does not feel as soft and in fact is quite stiff. Prefer other machine washable yarns that are spun for a gauge of 4.5 st/in, for these patterns ... much better fabric results. Still machine wash and tumble dry low with beautiful results. I will however use this yarn again for baby or kids knits at the smaller gauge!

Quality of this yarn has deteriorated since I first used it in Spring/Early summer of 2012. Multiple knots per ball were incurred. At the price of this yarn and the cost to make even a child's garment, using the Milla Mia patterns, I would expect better. Lots of knots might be expected in a yarn that is being discontinued, using up the materials, but not in a newer, full price yarn. This overrides the lovely feel of the merino and the convenience of the machine washability. I will not use it again, after finishing my project (the Cecilia Coat) which has now become a chore to work on.
FYI ... I am a long time knitter who loves the feel of fiber and NEVER but never finds much to dislike about any yarn ... I think this is a first (my hubbie insists it is a first, for me)

          I'm crocheting the babette blanket for my daughter. I bought 2 types of yarn for this project and the Millamia is by far the best of them. It retains a lovely twist and is so densely coloured (in my case).

            I am using this yarn exclusively for baby items. It is so soft and not scratchy at all, you would not know it was 100% wool! I love the soft colors, Petal is my favorite for little girls!

                This yarn is soft with a nice texture and it shows stitch definition well. The items have a very good "hand".

                I've been knitting lace projects with it and I'm very happy with it. I would buy this yarn again.

                      This was for a baby cardigan, Ella Funt that I knit for some friends of mine. I loved working with it. It's soft, extremely well plied and compares to a lot of older discontinued Italian designer yarns.
