Can't Wait to Use it!

Pros

  • Smooth And Lovely

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Shawls Scarves

    Comments about Swans Island Fingering:

    I will use this yarn for shawls and scarves. Though I haven't actually used it yet, I have wound the balls. All yarn is even in consistency, and smooth, without a knot, twist, tie or other imperfection in the entire 525 yds. This is a high-quality yarn, worth the price.

    Best Uses

    Comments about Swans Island Fingering:

    I used the beetroot color which is really gorgeous - especially after washing. I really like the subtle changes of color - not stripey. The only downside is the yarn bleeding all over my hands the entire way through the shawl. (It did wash off without a problem.)

        Comments about Swans Island Fingering:

        I'm making the Litchfield shawl, a stockinet stitch on size 7 needles, with Oatmeal (one of the colors that has 15% alpaca). It is wonderfully soft, and is exactly what I hoped for in the shawl. Although the skein has 525 yards, when I wound the skein into a ball, there were no knots, the yarn doesn't split, and stitches look nice & even. The color is perfect, and matches the photo on the website well. I got what I expected and am very pleased with the yarn. I'm not sure how it would be for socks (no nylon for strength), but they would certainly be soft and warm.

        Soft and well defined

        By Neferkare

        from Singapore

        Comments about Swans Island Fingering:

        I used this yarn to make a shawl. I love the softness and yet not too squishy. The yarn is not splitty at all. The stitches are well defined and the resulting swatch is showing the cables and lace well. I only wish it has less of a halo. As I have not worn the shawl yet, I am not sure how good the yarn stands up to wear.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Web always provides excellent customer service. Keep up with the good work.

        The natural undyed colors are beautiful.
        I'm using it double stranded to knit a blanket that will be similar to the woven blankets from Swans Island.

                • Very Fine Sock Knitting

                Comments about Swans Island Fingering:

                The colour, while beautiful, lacked flicker, or rather was consistent throughout the skein. I guess I was hoping for a bit more variation, although I am delighted with the yarn, if a bit terrified to be working this fine! Didn't someone say no project is too daunting if you want the end product enough? My New Years Resolution of knitting a pair of fine socks for myself (after 60 plus pairs of plain durables for husband and family) is coming home to roost.
