I love knitting merino wool and cotton wool. Merino wool is smooth and not itchy. Also I like kasmire and alpaka silk.

Wool is my favorite...nice definition.  Mercerized cotton yarn for washclothes!

I can't say that I have a favorite. I don't often get really nice yarns and when I do, I don't know what to do with them.

I too like Merino wool and silk. It all depends on what I am about to do though.
For my amigurumis I mostly use Catania cotton yarn and it's really beautiful to the touch.
Some works are better done with baby yarn which is definitely the most lovely to knit and crochet with.

I love merino wool and baby alpaca.  And lately, I've started using CoBaSi for summer-weight socks - it's got elastic in it, and it wears like iron.  Even my better half hasn't been able to wear holes in socks made from CoBaSi.

I like to knit with many different types of yarns.  Weight-wise and lately it's been fingering weight - I've been knitting shawls.  But I also use a lot of worsted and DK weight.  Fiber content-wise I like merino, bamboo, silk, and cotton blends.  I gave up on most cashmere yarns because they are too expensive and most weights pill, which is a nuisance.  Right now I am knitting a shawl of a linen/modal blend.  It will get softer with each washing so as soon as it is off the needles, which will be in another row or two, I'll wash it!
