Way back in February of this year Knitting Magazine included our Baruffa 4PLY yarn in their review, here's a look at what they had to say:

'Zegna Baruffa Lane Borgosesia is a family run business that has been spinning yarns in Italy since 1850. They're renowned for supplying high quality Merino yarns to industrial knitters and weavers who supply some of the biggest brands in the fashion industry and they've used these same skills and experience to develop a range of hand knitting yarns for Todds Hand Knits. Pura Lana, which is a 4PLY here but is also available in both DK and Aran weight, is 100% extra fine merino wool. It's a beautifully smooth, softly twisted yarn that knits to a standard tension of 24sts and 36 rows on 3.5mm needles.

The resulting fabric has a lovely soft handle, beautiful drape and excellent stitch definition which makes it ideal for knitting countless stitches, from moss and garter stitch to cable and rib structures. It has a good metreage of 170m per 50g ball and there is an impressive choice of 30 colours in the range including shade Embers, shown here. Gentle washing at 40°c is recommended, may also be dry cleaned.'

Quite a nice review, even if we do say so ourselves!
