      I made a wide lacy scarf with lots of eyelets and picot edges. It blocked so light and lovely! It was a pleasure to knit with this yarn. Relaxing as it was simple to use - yet elegant to the touch. The colors are brilliant. This was bought with a gift card from a work friend who I gave the scarf to as a surprise.

      Very soft

      This yarn was recommended for the Galene Cowl. I wear a coat with Velcro closings and when the yarn gets new velcro it pulls bad. So beware. It knits up very nicely.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

        I love to knit shawls, and I particularly like to knit lace. This product is terrific, and the colors make even the simplest pattern special and beautiful. I highly recommend the Falling Leaves Shawl pattern using any color of this yarn. The pattern knits up fast, makes a great wrap, and would make a perfect to gift for Christmas.

          This yarn is truly exquisite and results in a lovely, draped accessory. Kudos to the producer of this hand-dyed yarn. Will be using another colorway soon.
          Used the colorway Fall Festival for a stole/scarf. Pattern: Falling Leaves.
          I can't say enough good things about the results.

            I am making a shawl with the latest batch of this yarn, but I've made hats, fingerless gloves and socks with this wool. I highly recommend it because it has great stitch definition if you're using it for lace patterns, and makes good, durable socks.

                  Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

                  The yarn is beautiful, however I felt a little let down for 2 reasons: The color range I received did not look anything like the picture - which is ok, but not. I ordered 2 skeins and did not notice until I had used most of the first one, that they were dramatically different (like day and night, light and dark). So the shawl has a light and a dark end. Otherwise wonderful yarn in beuatiful shades of purple/green/blues....
