Fiddlesticks Knitting Yarn
Fiddlesticks Knitting Enticing
Fiddlesticks Knitting Enticing begs to be touched! In muted soft shades with a little sheen and a slight fuzz, this 2 ply sport-weight yarn is mostly merino wool softened by angora and silk. Think thinner layering tops and fine wraps, or use this luscious natural fiber blend for fancy lacework. At this price, Enticing is an affordable indulgence. Made in Italy.

This yarn is just beautiful. I used it to make two of the same infinity scarf as gifts. I used a size 7 circular and it worked up fine because I needed a lightweight, loose definition. To create a more solid fabric, you'd really need a 4. Perhaps smaller. This yarn is simply not a sport weight, it is a fingering weight. As long as that's okay for your intended project, you will adore this gorgeous stuff.
- Was this a gift?:
This yarn is very pretty, but it is a light fingering weight yarn, NOT a sport weight. I bought this to make Susie's reading mitts, and there is no way this yarn will work.
- Blocked Beautifully
- Feather light
- Good stitch definition
- Wonderful drape
I made a lace shawl with size 10 1/2 needles which I thought might give me some problems, but it knit up beautifully with great stitch definition. I would definitely recommend this yarn and I will use it again, but it is more fingering weight than sport.
- Beautiful texture
- Great stitch definition
- Knit With Cables
I was looking for a yarn similar in weight to Madelinetosh merino light DK, but in plain colors. I just started knitting the Glam Shells shawl and the stitch definition is absolutely fabulous. The angora gives it a nice and soft touch without making it fuzzy.
I am surprised by the comment saying that this yarn is not a DK. I am knitting the shawl with a size 4 circular needle and I get a 6 st. per inch gauge.
I will definitely stock up on this yarn!
- Super soft
This is really great yarn, super soft and nice colors. BUT, it is definitely not Sport weight as indicated in the description. On Ravelry (unfortunately I didn't look there before I ordered it) lists it as Light fingering and I think that is right on, as it is thinner than a few sock yarns that I own and compared it to.
