Love this yarn

I used 2 skeins to knit a small shawl for a charity auction. It produced a stunning product that was much fought over. Easy to knit with. Hard to let go.

I purchased several skeins for a lacy crochet sweater in August 2011. Not long after starting the project, it took low priority and 2 years later it remains a UFO. I washed a swatch I'd made a while ago, only to find out the dye bled. I washed in cold water with Eucalan and rinsed with cold water only to find there was a lot of dye in the wash, and even some in the rinse. Very disappointed - and will probably frog the project and wash/rinse the yarn until the dye stops bleeding. Not what I expected from a WEBS yarn! I haven't seen any similar complaints, so hopefully dye issues were limited to this color and or dyelot.

Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont Kettle Dye:

I bought this yarn to make a sweater for a Christmas gift but found that this yarn was too small for the project I wanted to do. I'm not used to working with such small yarn and especially on a large project. I love the softness of the yarn and think it would be wonderful to work with on another project. It would make a beautiful scarf or socks.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont Kettle Dye:

          The color was beautiful and yarn soft. I used it in a pattern with a Charlemont solid. The solid worked very well. The kettle-dyed became very fuzzy--it had a greyish fuzz, almost like dust bunnies. Ended up starting over with a different yarn. I will try knitting something else with it to see if I can determine if there is another cause for the fuzzing (like type of needle). The quality of other Valley yarns is very high. So this one was a real disappointment.
