It was a touch thicker than thread. It felt so delicate in my fingers, that I was afraid I was going to break it. But, then I did my test swatch and OMG! After washing and blocking, the fiber came alive! The yarn bloomed and softened up so much - I caught myself petting the swatch all day. Then, I was extremely anxious to start the actual shawl.
