      I made a beautiful lace scarf with this yarn. As I was designing this, I had to frog multiple times, and it held up quite nicely to this. This is a very fine laceweight yarn, closer to cobweb weight, so I held it double to make it into more of a light fingering weight.

      I bought this due to it being on sale and my planes to knit a large shawl. The yardage and price were very good. It was also a plus that the yarn is superwash. I did run into a problem while winding it, I was going fairly slow but the swift end had a snag and the yarn snapped. I was rewinding the first ball as it was out of whack and it snapped again. Beariing in mind this is cobweb lace weight yarn I was not too upset. I do find knitting to be going slower both due to the fineness of the yarn and the pattern.

        Comments about Filatura Di Crosa Centolavaggi:

        I was expecting this yarn to be more of a fingering or lace weight. If I'd done my research, I would have seen that it is cobweb. I will probably try doubling it up for my projects.

              Going to use this to make a huge shawl and my LYS doesn't carry a good selection of lace weight. Love the amount of yards this has and the softness will be a pleasure to work with.

                  This is a wonderful yarn- great for lacy projects. It's lighter-than-air soft and cozy. It is also very, very fine- much finer than most lace weight yarns.

                      I am using this to make my first lace project. There are a few rows that I have had to frog back (thank God for lifelines!) and the stitches come out very easy and the yarn still looks fine after. Love this yarn and will buy more for future projects.

                      I like this yarn, but be warned, it's very thin. I'm currently knitting a shawl with it (single-stranded) but plan to use it doubled for a sweater. I heard that three strands together knit up to sportweight. It's possible to wind by hand but takes a long time and some care.
