      Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield 100 Gram Hanks:

      I love this yarn. I bought it for a baby blessing dress for a winter baby. The yarn is just right for this garment: light, soft and warm. It drapes beautifully with a very subtle sheen.

      I bought it needing the natural/off white color, so can't speak to how well it dyes. The skein is a bargain at this price, but because it's got so much yardage, you need to be careful while winding it that it doesn't get tangled.

      Because of the weight of the yarn, it doesn't knit quickly, but the end result is well worth your time. Also, I think the alpaca in the product causes it to shed just a little. It's not bad, and that's what makes this so soft.

      This is just gorgeous yarn. I'm thinking what else I can make in other colors.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield 100 Gram Hanks:

      The thing to know is it takes dye more slowly than wool. But it is so soft I absolutely love this yarn. It does stretch when wearing, but a little less so than standard wool.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield 100 Gram Hanks:

        I bought this yarn without any specific project in mind, just to look what is offered in so tasty a combination of fibers. It was (and is) stunningly soft and flowing. I had to hold a competition of ideas to choose from, and finally settled on a nice warm shawl for my mother-in-law. You know that making presents to a mother-in-law is a very responsible thing.
        The yarn knit like heaven, and was absolutely silky and gentle to touch, like small silky bunny. I couldn't believe it was alpaca, not angora rabbit!
        The shawl came out gorgeous. I'm planning already my next projects with the yarn.

            It was backorder and it took more than 5 months almost enough time to change the project, but I stuck to it.
