My most favorite yarn is Elsa's Wool from Bayfield, CO. Her cormo wool is just so wonderful to knit with. It just jumps off the needles to the article being knit.

I mostly knit lace and my favorite yarn (s) always seem to be the high end lace weight yarns like Artyarns. I am alergic to wool so I'm always looking for sales on silks, cashmere, baby merino & alpaca, and certain blends. HINT: If a mohair/silk blend bothers my hands I wear cheap nylon gloves that I've cut out the fingers and thumbs. This also works great in the summertime if hands sweat while working with yarn.

Koigu stole my heart and still has it! It is springy and wonderful to knit with; easy on the hands regardless of gauge. Makes great shawls, sweaters, and socks. Plus, it is superwash.

Not fair! You just reviewed Imperial Columbia 2-ply which I love. But when I want more color -- Manos or Malabrigo are my favs.

La Lana Forever Random handspun. I have ordered hundreds of dollars of it, now that the store is closing, but I wish I could afford much more. Knowing it won't be available any more makes me so sad, but I will treasure the things I make from it all the more.

I love Berroco's Ultra Alpaca. Why? Because it knits up beautifully, drapes well and is a bargain for what you get.

Okay, now that I am on a roll, Sanguine Gryphon's Codex is wonderful but alas not currently available. Hopefully again in the future.

My favorite yarn of all time is Bartlettyarn from Harmony, Maine. I previously raised sheep and sent the fleeces there for processing. My family has many garments and dozens of mittens that I have made for them over the last 35 years, and most items are still in good shape. It is a delightful yarn to work with, comes in several colors, wears and washes well with a minimum of pilling. I do use other yarns, almost all wool, but often go back to Bartlettyarns.

My favorite is the mink/cashmere yarn from Great Northern Yarns. It is the softest yarn ever made, hands down. The bloom on it is amazing and it truly makes heavenly garments that will last forever.

Lopi! Always and forever Lopi. When I get the idea that I should run away to a warm island-I stop myself quickly by wondering how would I wear Lopi? It might be my favorite because it is an honest wool. Or perhaps because I knit my first Lopi sweater in 2 weeks and 6 days-yeah that might be it. And I love the scratchy quality!
