      Comments about Valley Yarns Lenox:

      Very soft alpaca and a little cashmere makes this so nice you just want to pet it and snuggle into it. The nature of these fibers together will not create a bouncy, lofty yarn, and over time you can expect your project to grow a little, but it's heavenly for the right project. So far ive used it for hats, cowls, scarves, and I recently bought enough to make myself a large shawl so I can wrap up in it and watch tv.

      NOT Heavy Worsted

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Valley Yarns Lenox:

      I checked the reviews for this yarn and based on the fact that it is NOT a heavy worsted, I ordered it for some baby shower gifts. It's perfect, but not a heavy worsted. On US 9's it is a soft and drapey fabric. I'm sorry it's misrepresented though.

      Gorgeous Worsted-Weight Yarn

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Valley Yarns Lenox:

      This yarn is absolutely gorgeous. I'm presently knitting it into a large tunic-style cowled pullover, and I can't be happier with how it works up. As others have noted, it is not really a heavy worsted. It knits up into a gauzy fabric on size 7 (4.50 mm) needles, and I'm sure that it could also be knitted on size 6 (4.00 mm) needles for a more firm fabric. Nevertheless, it is incredibly lovely and is a joy to knit with. And such yummy saturated solors!

      gauge misrepresented, soft

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Valley Yarns Lenox:

      The yarn is soft but the gauge is misrepresented on the yarn.com website. It is NOT heavy worsted. The gauge on the yarn label says 4 sts per inch on size 8 needles, not 9...it knits up smaller than that, more of a light worsted.

      Knitting Heaven

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Valley Yarns Lenox:

      This yarn was such a pleasure to use! It is very soft and not at all scratchy from the alpaca, and the finished sweater I knit with it was very cozy and warm. It does knit up quite loosely at the gauge listed, so I took it down to 5 sts per inch which ended up being perfect. I would definitely use this yarn again.
