i got soem fo this yarn recently and although it didnt specify fingering vs worsted weight, it is fingering weight. as im not familiar with fingering weight, i dont know if its often that the yarn sort of "falls apart" like the ply is very loose, not twisted up much. it IS soft, though.

Oooh yeah, tell us how it is! I looks lovely!!
I'll be sure to let you know how it is when I receive it..........I'm not big into doing swatches, but just might try it with this yarn to see how the colors knit up.

The auction I won stated worsted weight. I hope that's what it is. If it turns out to be fingering, it will be okay I guess...It would make a beautiful pair of socks!
I hate to hear that your yarn falls apart :( Have you tried knitting with it yet?

Look at this yarn on eBay!! - UPDATE - received it today!
My yarn arrived today! It is beautiful! The auction stated worsted weight, but the gauge on the label looks like fingering weight to me - 7 - 8 stitches = 1" on size 1 - 3 needles. :( I was hoping to make a felted purse with it, but I guess I can double (maybe even triple?) the yarn and still make a purse. I'm going to knit up a swatch tonight, and I'll post a pic of it later. Here's some pics for now:

Yay! I love the marled look! Funny it doesn't look like fingering yarn. I can't wait to hear your review of it!
