Kind of scratchy...not sure what I expected from a fingering yarn, but this wasn't quite 'it' - I'm used to more squishy-soft fingering yarns. That said, I'm using it to make a winter hat for my son - held double, and it has nice stitch definition and cables look nice.
I'd love to say that this yarn looks great as the shawl edging it was meant to be, but I never used it. I was looking for a red plum color. After this arrived I figured I really needed a fuschia. The yarn looks great, though. I'll be able to use it with another project. No harm, no foul.
I don't work often with yarns thinner than worsted weight, but every once in a while a project comes along that requires it. Cascade 220 Fingering yarn offers the same color selection and quality of the worsted-weight counterpart and at a great price.
Of course, I always like Cascade 220--the fingering weight is very nice as well. Consistently spun, it's a good workhorse. I got this to run along with a multicolor yarn in making an infinity scarf. It's tightly plied, no splitting, good definition. And the dark brown color is rich and warm. A winner!
