        Soft yarn but Gauge issues

        By Sarah

            Comments about Lana Gatto Camel Hair:

            Very nice, soft yarn BUT I'd recommend using US size 4 needles instead of US 7 which is what it suggests. Gauge is about 6sts/in, 8.39rnds/in. This means their gauge is totally off and you'll wind up having to buy WAY more yarn than any worsted weight pattern calls for. Ravelry actually puts this yarn at Aran weight! Totally crazy; it's way too thin.

              I absolutely love this yarn. I made a wrap with it and it is very soft.
              It is so nice to work with, that I bought more of it.

                Comments about Lana Gatto Camel Hair:

                Beautiful, buttery soft yarn, but buyer-bewear!

                I bought three different colors of the Lana Gatto Camel Hair yarn and the colors that I received were drastically different than the colors shown online. I have ordered many times from Webs and have never experienced this problem before, so I was quite disappointed.

                With the Camel Hair yarn, the beige was the only color that was "correct". The Khaki Drab is shown online as a kind of light sage color, and the color I got was a dark olive. Also, the Navy I got is so dark it's pretty much black, and the navy color shown online is actually pretty light looking. I understand that there will be a slight difference in colors shown online and the colors in life, but this difference was was drastic I thought I had received the wrong yarn at first.

                The yarn its self is great to work with. Soft, light, and easy to knit. There is only a very slight halo when knitted up. I would recommend this yarn, but I am very disappointed with Webs color presentation of this yarn!

                Service and delivery comments:

                I wrote to customer service about the disconnect between the colors presented online and the yarns I received, but never heard back. Disappointed with the lack of response. Matching colors correctly is very important to me and I depend on correct yarn photos to make my purchasing decisions.
