Oh my goodness, this yarn may be the most luxurious fiber I've ever knitted with.
I was looking for a fingering weight and I would call this light fingering.
It was actually the color that first drew me to the yarn. I was looking for a beautiful ivory--not too yellow, not too harshly white. This was perfect. I had something else--something very nice and significantly less expensive in my hand (I was shopping at the store), but when I found this I dropped it and said I'd pay the difference. There is no yellowedness in the "vanilla creme," but even though the hue is slightly cool compared to some of the ivories, it doesn't look cold.
And how could it look cold with a softness, a slight, almost angora-like halo like this? This yarn is SOFT--maybe even softer than alpaca. It is so soft, in fact, that it's a little slick on the needles, so you may need to adjust your knitting a tad for that, but you will love working with it, and love wearing it even more. It almost feels like it has silk in it. And it looks a bit silky, too. The appearance is so elegant, and delicate. With a tight twist, it is firm and perfectly round, but with a sweet, soft halo. I am sort of regretting that my pattern isn't lacier, because it would make the most exquisite lace.
I don't write many reviews, but I was so thrilled with this yarn that I wanted others to know about it. The subtle qualities of natural yarns aren't easy to convey online, but you can be confident that you would be happy with this yarn if it's the weight and color you're looking for.
