          Lovely lighter weight yarn

                Comments about Louisa Harding Amitola:

                I like this yarn very much and will be buying,more of it when I can. The colors are lovely and rather than having a distinct stripe, they fade nicely from one color to the next. I'm only sorry that my project didn't show that off as well as a different type of pattern would have. I love yarn of this weight for crochet, as,the finished product doesn't get too bulky. I agree that mostly it is somewhere in between fingering and dk, my yarn changed a bit in thickness throughout the ball, but overall the yarn was thicker than I expected having read the previous reviews here. And I don't at all understand saying it breaks easily. Mine, at least, was perfectly fine for normal hand knit or crochet use. For me, this yarn was exactly what I hoped for and there was nothing I didn't like about it.

                      Beautiiful colour. Not DK, very thin and easy to break. Unfortunately, I bought 3 Different colour sets ( 5 balls each) . I finish the 1st project, don't know what to do with the rest ( 10 balls) .

                        Comments about Louisa Harding Amitola:

                        Very pretty colors, but although this yarn is labeled as DK, it really isn't. It's very thin, more like light fingering. Therefore, I couldn't use it for my project.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Customer service was fabulous! They were very understanding about taking it back and quick to refund.
