I'm making a sweater. Just did the swatch, using the recommended size US6 (4mm) needle, I had 24sts by 34 rows in 10cm x 10cm. The fabric was very loose. Re-did with US 4 (3.25mm) the fabric was much better and got 32sts x 40 rows.

I have bought yarn from this source for many years. I have always found the product descriptions accurate, so when I noted this product was labeled 'worsted,' I bought it without hesitation. When it arrived, I was shocked. It is fingerling weight--not even sock weight!. So if you think you're getting a product like Cascade 220 worsted, be warned, you are not.

However, I will say that the yarn is baby soft, beautifully colored. I applaud Webs customer service who without hesitation agreed to take the yarn back and credit my card. Webs always makes things right.

    Comments about Artyarns Ensemble Light:

    Vivid and luminous colour and totally indulgent bare-skin-caressing softness. Perfect for Springtime scarfs and Summer evening shawls. The softness and fineness of the yarn can make knitting feel like working with silken cobwebs. Utterly worth the effort though.

        Comments about Artyarns Ensemble Light:

        I have made two scarves with this yarn (one skein each color) and have never received so many compliments.
        The yarn is as light as a feather thanks to the cashmere and has beautiful highlights thanks to the silk.
        Wish I could afford to knit with it all the time.

            I decided the yarn felt so good I went for a simple stocking stitch pattern with lace yoke sleeveless top so I could enjoy touching and smoothing the fabric.

            No pictures yet because I have only just started knitting with it.

                  Comments about Artyarns Ensemble Light:

                  I made a shawl out of the "Magenta". I was surprised at the actual dye lot compared to the picture. It is much more varigated. I initially completed a simple shawl and ended up ripping it out. It came apart very easily. I then used one of the patterns that came with the yarn, very lacy. It was much easier than I expected. I wore it to my daughter's wedding (warm temperatures but the shawl was perfect) and received many compliments. I have now been wearing it as a loose scarf in very cold temps. It is NOT itchy, it is so soft and drapes beautifully and also very warm.I always receive compliments. I never knitted with such fine yarn and I am not good at correcting mistakes. I managed to finish without any major errors.The price seems expensive but I made a 72" X 12-14" shawl with one hank.

                  Comments about Artyarns Ensemble Light:

                  I bought this to knit a shawl for my Mom and it is incredibly light weight, silky soft to the touch and very warm with a lovely drape and soft sheen - it's the most beautiful thing I have ever knit. I quickly bought more colorways to make a scarf for a favorite cousin and another shawl, for me. The only shortcoming I can speak of is that pulling out my knitting when I made mistakes was difficult because the yarn would cling to itself somewhat. I highly recommend this yarn to anyone who wants an indulgently luxurious yarn.
