      Great Yarn - Make Sure You Block Your Swatch

      Deerfield in Burgundy colorway is wonderful! Soft, lustrous, no color bleed when soaking. I suggest you make sure you block your swatch, as gauge changed significantly after wet-blocking.

      I knitted a scarf, it is one of my most soft and warm scarf I have, only problem... it rubbed off on my fingers while I was knitting... Not fun at all! ... I had to wash it after with vinegar to "seal" the colour (deep blue!).

          Repeatedly ripped so I spent lots of time ripping out and fixing holes. The burgundy bled on my fingers and onto the cream yarn. Really frustrated as I was so excited about using this yarn for a shawl.

            Yummy soft yarn with great colors. Knits well and feels good in the hand. Seems to work well for fair isle, where too much weight can be a problem. Not too warm, which is great as spring approaches. I knit on an 8, and get a nice airy hand, even though it says to knit on a smaller needle -- i just pick a size smaller on the pattern, and it works just fine :) (always check gauge, but if you can figure out the math, you may like this approach)

                This is beautifull yarn that feels wonderful when knitting and isn't too heavy. This will be my second DK weight sweater. I wear the other one all the time because it's just the right weight -- not too heavy, not too warm. Can't wait to wear this one! Plus the colors are gorgeous and saturated. Just like the photos

                  I used this yarn and made a sweater for my daughter using the 471 Kohl Lace Pullover pattern. My daughter loves the sweater. This yarn has a soft, springy feel. The quality and color was good through out all 10 balls I used on the project.
                  However, the product description says this yarn is a DK weight, but I thought it was slightly thicker than that. I would not call it a worsted weight either, but it is between DK and Worsted in my book. This sweater turned out nice, but the yarn was heavier than I expected.

                  Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield:

                  I crocheted this yarn into the Valley Cowl and it worked beautifully in that pattern. The Burgundy color is rich and deep and lovely. The yarn is so very soft and lofty and light, but it is *very* loosely twisted, which leads to a bit of splitiness. As a crocheter, it's rare for me to encounter this in a yarn, although I would definitely use this again. Deerfield is exceptionally affordable and works quite well for light winter accessories.

                    This yarn produced a sweater with loads of drape. It is very luxurious and soft on the skin. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised how soft as compared to other alpaca yarns.
