        Great plied yarn, nice twist with great stitch definition. Making a lovely cabled baby sweater and it is really nice. Only complaint is occasional spots unplied and 'fluffy', which is a concern that it may pill over time.

                Comments about Louet Gems Fingering:

                I use Loute Gems super wash wool to knit socks, I love the colors offered. I use size 0 Addi turbo circulars and knit 2 socks at the same time. A womans sock (size 7 shoe) uses 1.5 skeins of yarn , a mans sock(size 10 shoe) uses 2 skeins. This yarn size with a size 0 needle produces a sock that can be worn inside your shoes without making the shoe too tight. My 2 boys are Eagle Scouts and wear these on winter camping trips, they say that my hand knit wool socks are warmer than the ones bought at the camping and sporting goods store. I wash the socks in cold water in my front load machine and I air dry them. I also sent some of this wool to my sister in-law who lives in Russia- north of Moscow- and she loves it for socks. I think the price is fair, my local knitting store only carries fingering superwash that is $15 a skein and that is too pricey for me to use 2 skeins in each pair of socks.Webs Shipped put my order quickly at a reasonable rate.

                  Comments about Louet Gems Fingering:

                  I do not have any complaints as yet. I haven't finished the gloves so they haven't been washed but the firm texture and ply suggest that washing should not be a problem. I especially like the slight twist which makes the yarn firm but doesn't change the soft quality and gives it a bit more texture. Altogether a very fine yarn and a pleasure to use.

                      I used this yarn in combination with another to increase the weight. It is really soft all by itself. The color is vivid. It's washable.

                          I prefer fingering weight yarn over thicker yarns, so I have ordered several skeins of Gems Fingering over the years. Latest purchases were intended for hand-dyeing, but they still are in their pristine white condition. Any unevenness in knitting evens out with blocking. As I grow older and hands becomme increasingly arthritic, this is an important feature. I generally hand-wash items, but recipients of baby knits report that they machine wash beautifully.
