    I just finished knitting a sweater with Northfield in Charcoal and I love the way it feels on your hands as you knit. I love the way it feels when I wear it! And it drapes beautifully. As I expected, this blend of alpaca, silk, and merino grew during wet blocking. I found that it split a little, especially after ripping out a few rows to correct mistakes, but not enough to be a major concern.
    I bought this on sale but even for the regular price it feels like a much more expensive yarn.

    I made mittens with this yarn and it works fine, I won't make hats or scarves or anything close to the skin, it is kind of rough without being coarse. It is hard to describe the feeling when you touch it. The colors are beautiful.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

        I am working on my 5th Aran throw using Northfield. It's great to work with, since stitches are beautifully defined. This DK weight is my favorite for afghans. Recipients of these gifts are thrilled with colors and washability. A 12-skein throw can be pricey, but I wouldn't commit my time to a lesser product.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

          I made a shawl out of this subtle yet stunning yarn (sage green color). The shawl has been twisted, wrapped, tied in a knot, folded, pinned, accidentally snagged on a splintered shawl pin, and generally abused -- and still looks brand new. The shawl has gotten softer over time and has not pilled. The stitches came out looking even, too, which doesn't always happen for me. I have purchased more of this yarn and intend to knit a sweater.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

          This is a high quality yarn at a very reasonable price. This yarn is great for color work hats and also a nice weight for hats with cables. Very soft - even for babies. I've also used for a scarf and small felted things. It does require hand-washing. I've purchased this yarn for years and been impressed with the consistency.

                  I made cowls for gifts this last Christmas. Several were the Pavo Knit Lace Cowl. I am relatively new to knitting but knew I wanted so fiber that was extremely soft and easy to care for. This yarn was beautiful. I ordered the Natural, Lavender, and Purple Haze. It worked up beautifully. I have learned that knitting can be a chore if you don't find your fiber pretty and touchable.

                  I also want to say that WEBS ordering and shipping was terrific!

                      This yarn is amazingly, unbelievably soft. I can't get over the texture! It stays wound very well - I haven't had any problems splitting stitches. It is absolutely gorgeous, and a delight to work with. I am definitely looking forward to making more projects with this.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      I was delighted at how quickly I received my order! I live in a rural area, and do not have a local yarn store; this was the perfect solution to get the yarn I wanted at a good price. I will definitely order from WEBS again in the future.

                      I knitted a girl's pullover in the round. This yarn made casting on and joining in the round a breeze - no tendency to twist on the needle. Also, the texture stitches really stood out very nicely. The yarn is cuddly , which is lovely for a young girl.
