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

    I knitted a sweater with this yarn and it was a pleasure to work with. I had no splitting. There were no joins in the yarn. Kangaroo dyer does a great job. The only problem I had was color. I ordered lightening bug which was displayed as a lime green. When I received it, it was lemon yellow. The tag was attached and confirmed the color way. I over dyed it and it worked great for my project.
    Other than the color, this yarn is amazing!

      Love the pattern to make small infinity cowls for all the wonderful women in my life. Haven't done it yet but the texture and colors are great! I ordered several.

        Absolutely love this yarn, I used 2 skeins Radiant Orchid, and knitted and gifted a scarf to a relative. Knits up and blocks beautifully. Recently ordered more, I would most certainly recommend this yarn.

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

          This is a wonderful yarn to knit. It is soft and comfortable. Watching the pattern emerge was a lot of fun. I bought it at a Webs sale and the skeins were 250 gms. each which I really like. I should have alternated skeins while knitting, but didn't.

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

            Making a simple shawl for my mom, and it's knitting up beautifully! Almost tempted to keep it... Will definitely use this yarn again! Only complaint is the color (sea glass) is a LOT darker than the photo on both my computers. Still a pretty color, but not the soft pastel I expected. The drawback of buying online, of course, and not an issue for the shawl. (Would have been 5 stars, but gave 4 for color. Sorry.)

              I am in the process of crocheting a shrug with this in the denim color. The dye is beautiful. The color variations are very subtle and yummy. I am certain this would be a pleasure to knit with. The strands do not separate and it works quickly without snagging. I am buying more as I love this so much!

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

              This was a pleasure to work with. My first choice of colour was out of stock but I loved my second choice. I crocheted a cowel and I was so so happy working with it and with the outcome.
