    It’s another yarn review Saturday here on the blog and today I’m sharing my review of the Gloss Fingering Weight Yarn from We Crochet. I’ve been absolutely loving working with fingering weight yarns since I tried Hawthorne Fingering Weight yarn earlier this year. I found out that it doesn’t take nearly as long as I feared it would to make things with it so I decided that I needed to try all the fingering weight yarns now.

    This yarn was provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

    I have the Harvest and Captain colourways of Gloss Fingering yarn to check out and they are GOR-GEOUS. This yarn is aptly named Gloss because it has a beautiful, yet subtle sheen to it and paired with the gorgeously bold colours, it’s just beautiful. There are 18 different colours available in this yarn and I would use every single one of them in my wardrobe. A top made in the Masala, Navy and Zinc colourways? YES PLEASE!

    The yarn is put up in hanks and first impressions upon picking one up was that it felt soft yet sturdy. I had expected it to be a bit softer because of the silk content. I’ve been surprised before by yarns so I grabbed my hooks and got started.

    Crocheting with Gloss Fingering Weight

    Crocheting with Gloss Fingering Weight was a smooth ride from start to finish. The yarn strand has a nice tight ply so it wasn’t prone to splitting while I worked with it. Once I started to work this yarn up, I noticed that it felt softer to the touch than it did in the hank. The sheen in the swatches was subtle and gave a nice depth to the colour. Stitch definition was good and the drape in my tunisian sample was great. I’m a bit of a tight crocheter and think the drape in my basic crochet swatch would be better if I went up a hook size or two from the one I selected for my sample. I really liked the tunisian crochet sample swatch with this yarn but I think I want to do another one with cables as I bet cables would look fab in this yarn.

    The colourway Captain did leave some colour transfer on my hands that wasn’t great. I didn’t have anything like that happen with the Harvest colourway however. I think this likely happened due to how dark the Captain colourway is dyed. It washed off my hands easily enough and I know to wash this separately to ensure any bleeding colours don’t affect my other laundry. Since this yarn requires that things be hand washed, this isn’t a big deal since I do hand wash items on their own anyways.

    This wasn’t my favourite We Crochet yarn but it was still a lovely yarn to work with. Honestly, I’ve tried so many great yarns from We Crochet it’s hard to choose a favourite. Gloss Fingering is a yarn that I’d probably indulge in if I wanted to make something that was a bit of a luxury item or as a gift for someone. It would be great for shawls, garments or acccessories.
