Use caution if you need standard worsted weight.

Comments about FILATURA DI CROSA Portofino:

This yarn is lovely and soft. I've swatched it and it works up nicely. However, I ordered it because it was listed as a worsted weight (and for a specific project that calls for worsted) - if this IS worsted, it is a very light worsted.

    Comments about FILATURA DI CROSA Portofino:

    I am currently knitting a lady's sweater top with Portofino New Penny. I particularly like the color variarion in the yarn and the soft texture. The only challenge: Due to the viscose content the yarn is a bit slippery on the needle. However, once I got used to this quality, it does appear to be knitting up evenly.

        Comments about FILATURA DI CROSA Portofino:

        I got this to try a summer scarf in purse stitch. I've made two in regular dishcloth cotton and I thought this would give a nice drape. I was wrong. SSK is so hard in this yarn it's not worth it. It also is just not pretty in this stitch. Looks like static.
