I think that would certainly be fingering weight or lighter, maybe laceweight even. Yarn that is sold for machine knitting frequently comes with sizing oil on it. Sometimes it is possible to knit with it as is and the oil comes out when you wash the garment for blocking. However, I have bought some coned yarns on which the oil was so thick that it could not be knit without washing first.
