        Not fingering weight, but it's pretty

          Unfortunately, I ordered this before reading the other reviews... Oops. Don't get me wrong, this is beautiful yarn, lovely colors. But it is NOT a fingering yarn. The tag even says it's a lace weight yarn and it is VERY fine. Wish I had known that before picking the patterns I wanted to make with this yarn.

          NOT Fingering weight, not thrilled.

          By perturbed crafter

          from morrisville, PA

          Pros

          • Beautiful Color

          Cons

          • Blowout Sale No Returns
          • Closeout Yarn
          • Not Fingering Weight

          Best Uses

            This is a lace weight yarn, which is obvious after receiving it. Bought this with a specific pattern in mind that calls for fingering weight, which this is not.
            The colors are beautiful, and I'm sure I will find something to make with it, but I feel this yarn is mislabeled.
            Have not worked it yet, no idea how it handles.

            I would return it, but it was purchased during the blowout sale and all sales are final.
            I will be reading customer reviews from now on.
            :-(

            Tangled Nightmare, Unusable

            By WYcrochet

            from Laramie, WY

            Pros

              Cons

              • Tangles

              Best Uses

                1) Not fingering weight yarn. Fine LACE weight yarn.
                2) Hanks are super labor intensive to wind into balls and become a tangled nightmare. The ends are difficult to find and woven all through the hank so even a winding machine would destroy the yarn. I will probably have to throw the yarn away.

                The colors are beautiful, which is what possessed me to try winding them into balls and double strand the yarn. *facepalm* I recommend sending this back if you get it expecting fingering weight instead of keeping it. Better yet, do not buy in the first place.

                Beautiful lace weight colorways

                By L J

                from Oregon

                Pros

                • Nice hand
                • Saturated color

                Cons

                • Not Fingering

                Best Uses

                • Scarves
                • Shawls

                I purchased this after one review. Decided I would wait for it to arrive to verify that this was indeed, lace weight yarn. It is. However, my projects can accomodate either yarn. I am happy with the color saturation of the cotton. I am eager to knit this up to see how the pattern of the color changes. There's enough for more than one project per skein. I like two-fers!

                Gorgeous but very thin

                By ermdog

                from L.A. Ca.

                Pros

                • Great quality

                Cons

                  Best Uses

                    I was really expecting a thicker gauge, as the description said fingering. This is lace weight yarn. Not sure now what I will do with it. A little disappointed, but will say, I don't want to send it back. The colors are lovely and it's as soft as cotton can get. I'll find a use for it. Hopefully there is enough yardage to still make a lace shawl if I double the yarn.

                    Definitely not fingering

                    By Mercerlady

                    from New Jersey

                    Pros

                    • Beautiful colorways

                    Cons

                    • Really Fine Laceweight

                    Best Uses

                      I thought I could use this for shawls so I bought 2 different colorways. I am struggling to crochet with the first. Just too thin a yarn for me. Webs should change the description to lace from fingering

                      Beautiful color

                          Best Uses

                            I also thought it was fingering weight but found if you use it doubled it will work as a fingering weight yarn. Webs should change it in the description so as not to confuse their customers. I bought it as I can only wear cotton yarn. It is a good quality cotton.

                            Beautiful, but not fingering

                                  This yarn is really beautiful, I got the pastel and the color is just gorgeous, the only hitch is that this is LACE WEIGHT, not fingering as I thought it would be. Still, can't wait to use it.
