    Valley Yarns Charlemont Kettle Dye

    Valley Yarns Charlemont is a stunning blend of superwash merino, mulberry silk, and polyamide. It is incredibly soft with a lustrous sheen that brings out the kettle dyed jewel-like colors. With 439 yards per hank, it is an incredible value. Charlemont would be beautiful as socks, a shawl, a garment, or more. Try knitting, crocheting, or even weaving with it! Made in Peru.

    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.

    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.

            Love the tonal colors, softness and soft sheen. I'm hoping it will have a soft drape also for my yet unfinished sweater.

              This yarn is so beautiful and in lovely colors. I especially like tonal yarns and soft ones with a bit of silk to add a soft sheen. I used this yarn for lace knitting and was very pleased with the results.

              I really loved knitting several scarves & shawlettes with this lovely yarn. They drape beautifully, and are warm yet light. My only recommendation would be to have more colors available!

                I made a simple triangular scarf with lace sections and pointed hem that blocked beautifully and was very, very soft. Exquisite drape. Lovely colors to choose from!

                The socks that I knitted turned out well. The yarn showed the ribbing well and felt good to work with. Great price. It was splitty but I adjusted and will use Charlemont again.
