The skein is 251 yards for five ounces of acrylic yarn. It states that it is a worsted weight 4. I've seen a lot of variance in worsted weight yarns and I would certainly call this one a lighter worsted weight. The skein suggest a J 10 (6mm) hook but I found that an H (5mm) worked best for me.
I always test a new yarn by crocheting a standard scarf. That gives me the opportunity to experience the feel of the yarn and to compare it against other yarns that I have likewise tested. I use a half-double crochet as it gives a good body to the material and still leaves it soft enough for comfort.
For this scarf, as I had a lot of yardage, I choose to do a chain 14 (two for a turning chain), turn, half double crochet in 12, chain two turn, and repeat until the scarf was 72 inches long. In most worsted weight scarves, my scarf is around 4 inches wide. With this yarn, it ended up 3 inches wide by 72 inches long with a considerable amount of yarn left over (which I could and may use to make a fringe for the scarf.)
I liked the way the yarn felt in my hand. It was smooth and silky and the yarn pulled easily from the center. I didn't have any knots but I did have three spots where the yarn appeared slightly frayed. Those spots end well within my crochet but would have been apparent if I had knit with the skein. Because of the fraying, I would give this yarn a 4.5 stars if it were possible. As it is not, I round up (as always) to a 5.
I like the yarn a lot and will be making a number of projects using it. I had hoped for a full worsted weight yarn for some Celtic-inspired projects but I don't think it is quite thick enough.
