Mia Headband: MillaMia Yarn Review & Free Crochet Pattern


Ever since LoveCrochet let me know that they would love to send me some of their newest colours from the “MillaMia” yarn range to try out, I've been extremely excited to get my fingers on it and hooks in it!
I frequently work with merino wool when designing, which made me extra keen to see how this wool stacked up against some of my usual favourites.


These are only some of the colours available, but as you can already see, the colours are very elegant and rich which would make any project pop!
The wool is just as soft and squishy as you’d expect from looking at the pictures and comes in two different weights, Sports weight as well as Aran weight.


Here are some of my thoughts about this yarn in particular:
  • It has been a very long time since I've found such luxuriously soft and luscious merino wool! Over the years I've far too often found most merino wools to have an obvious 'scratchiness' to it, which I dislike with a passion when attempting to create a snuggly beanie or baby blanket. In other words, I was pleasantly surprised by just how soft this wool was and how smoothly it glides over a crochet hook... Here they did a very good job of developing a yarn base that provides warmth and comfort.
  • Despite being soft as a cloud, this wool (especially the Aran weight) has a lovely thickness and warmth to it. The stitch definition is also a great perk!
  • Each skein is only 87 yards (136 for sports weight) in length, but you'd be amazed by just how many different things you could crochet with that yardage!
  • The wool is unfortunately on the pricier side (But luckily for you guys, I got an exclusive discount... See below!), but I personally feel it's well worth the cost as in return you get some beautiful (and premium) Scandinavian wooly goodness! It's not often that you find such a lovely assortment of colours in any line of wool, and as you all know, I love me some colour!
So without further ado, here is my latest pattern for an adorable headband which features this lovely yarn seen above!
