Not fingering weight, but it's pretty

By JessaBelle

from Valley Village, CA

Pros

  • Colors
  • Pretty
  • Soft

Cons

  • Lace Weight

Best Uses

    Unfortunately, I ordered this before reading the other reviews... Oops. Don't get me wrong, this is beautiful yarn, lovely colors. But it is NOT a fingering yarn. The tag even says it's a lace weight yarn and it is VERY fine. Wish I had known that before picking the patterns I wanted to make with this yarn.

    NOT Fingering weight, not thrilled.

    By perturbed crafter

    from morrisville, PA

    Pros

    • Beautiful Color

    Cons

    • Blowout Sale No Returns
    • Closeout Yarn
    • Not Fingering Weight

    Best Uses

      This is a lace weight yarn, which is obvious after receiving it. Bought this with a specific pattern in mind that calls for fingering weight, which this is not.
      The colors are beautiful, and I'm sure I will find something to make with it, but I feel this yarn is mislabeled.
      Have not worked it yet, no idea how it handles.

      I would return it, but it was purchased during the blowout sale and all sales are final.
      I will be reading customer reviews from now on.
      :-(

      Tangled Nightmare, Unusable

      By WYcrochet

      from Laramie, WY

      Pros

        Cons

        • Tangles

        Best Uses

          1) Not fingering weight yarn. Fine LACE weight yarn.
          2) Hanks are super labor intensive to wind into balls and become a tangled nightmare. The ends are difficult to find and woven all through the hank so even a winding machine would destroy the yarn. I will probably have to throw the yarn away.

          The colors are beautiful, which is what possessed me to try winding them into balls and double strand the yarn. *facepalm* I recommend sending this back if you get it expecting fingering weight instead of keeping it. Better yet, do not buy in the first place.

          Beautiful lace weight colorways

          By L J

          from Oregon

          Pros

          • Nice hand
          • Saturated color

          Cons

          • Not Fingering

          Best Uses

          • Scarves
          • Shawls

          I purchased this after one review. Decided I would wait for it to arrive to verify that this was indeed, lace weight yarn. It is. However, my projects can accomodate either yarn. I am happy with the color saturation of the cotton. I am eager to knit this up to see how the pattern of the color changes. There's enough for more than one project per skein. I like two-fers!

          Gorgeous but very thin

          By ermdog

          from L.A. Ca.

          Pros

          • Great quality

          Cons

            Best Uses

              I was really expecting a thicker gauge, as the description said fingering. This is lace weight yarn. Not sure now what I will do with it. A little disappointed, but will say, I don't want to send it back. The colors are lovely and it's as soft as cotton can get. I'll find a use for it. Hopefully there is enough yardage to still make a lace shawl if I double the yarn.

              Definitely not fingering

              By Mercerlady

              from New Jersey

              Pros

              • Beautiful colorways

              Cons

              • Really Fine Laceweight

              Best Uses

                I thought I could use this for shawls so I bought 2 different colorways. I am struggling to crochet with the first. Just too thin a yarn for me. Webs should change the description to lace from fingering

                Beautiful color

                By Judi

                from Arroyo Grande CA

                I also thought it was fingering weight but found if you use it doubled it will work as a fingering weight yarn. Webs should change it in the description so as not to confuse their customers. I bought it as I can only wear cotton yarn. It is a good quality cotton.

                Beautiful, but not fingering

                By whovianlady

                from PA

                This yarn is really beautiful, I got the pastel and the color is just gorgeous, the only hitch is that this is LACE WEIGHT, not fingering as I thought it would be. Still, can't wait to use it.
