    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:

          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.

                Super-soft, this yarn does not do well with a lot of handling. It gets fuzzy. One thin strand of silk and one of cashmere, it can be doubled for a more substantial weight. A generous gift from my spouse.

                  This is a beautiful product; however, it is not a worsted weight yarn. I was shocked when it arrived. It is thread-like. However, I have conbined it with another, heavier yarn, and it crocheted up beautifully. I tried crocheting with it solo-a frustrating experience!
