          Wonderful staple yarn to always have on hand in your stash.

          Great wool feel and smell, fun and easy to work with. I love that it has a bit of an extra twist in its plying structure - that makes it so effortless to work with (no splitting) and shows off stitches beautifully.

          It's soft but by no means Merino-soft - but that's ok, I like this down-to-earth-wool feel.

          I personally like to use it for making patchwork pieces (granny squares) and crochet them together to create warm blankets. Absolutely loved in my family!
          Though I probably wouldn't wear it right on my neck, this yarn would also make great jackets or layering sweaters.

          Will always be back for more!

          The color I ordered was "Ocean Heather" which is a medium blue. The skein I received wasn't even close. It is a very dark teal, almost dark green. Not at all what I wanted as I am using it for a colorwork cowl with ivory :(

                Comments about Valley Yarns Northampton Sport:

                This is my new favorite yarn. I recently completed a cabled sweater using Northampton Sport and could not be more pleased. The cables really pop and the weight of the sweater is perfect. (A cabled sweater in worsted can be too heavy to wear indoors.) I promptly ordered two more sweaters' worth to have in stash. I may need to stash more...

                        I am currently knitting a sweater with Northampton Sport and am so pleased with the results that I ordered two additional sweaters' worth of this yarn. The stitch definition is fantastic and cables really pop. It is a pleasure to work with and a true bargain at the price. I will buy this yarn again and again.

                          Still knitting the sweater, and the yarn seems to knit up beautifully...nice soft fabric created.
                          I hesitate to order again, due to getting such a
                          different shade of blue than the picture advertised.
                          Once I got over the shock, I decided I would knit it
                          up anyway, since I like this color too.

                                  Like the other yarns in the Northampton line, this is a medium soft yarn with a nice consistent rounded construction. The weight, resiliancy and smoothness make it a pleasure to knit. It is a good choice for either textured stitches or color work and suitable for garments, accessories or toys. As others have commented, I'd like to see it in more colors.
