    Great Yarn - Make Sure You Block Your Swatch

    Deerfield in Burgundy colorway is wonderful! Soft, lustrous, no color bleed when soaking. I suggest you make sure you block your swatch, as gauge changed significantly after wet-blocking.

    I knitted a scarf, it is one of my most soft and warm scarf I have, only problem... it rubbed off on my fingers while I was knitting... Not fun at all! ... I had to wash it after with vinegar to "seal" the colour (deep blue!).

      Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield:

      I ordered the navy blue and it is the most beautiful dark shade. It really does feel soo very soft, too. I definitely need to knit it in daylight hours, but it will be absolutely gorgeous when I finish. I'm making a relatively large jacket, so it will be a while, since as a lot of enthusiasts of knitting, I have several projects going at the same time.

        I am knitting the Driftwood hooded sweater from Rowan Classic beach book. (Lots of cables) It is coming out really well. It's soft and the color is beautiful. I can't wait to wear it.

              This is a lovely yarn which practically knit itself into the garment. The drape is soft and elegant. It was a pleasure to knit with. The yarn was perfect for the capelet, making it the garment I had envisioned.

                What a great DK weight yarn. I am crocheting the #591 Warrant Cardigan designed by Sara Delaney and am so happy with both the Deerfield and Northfield yarns. Also love the very subtle difference in shades of navy between the two yarns that results in a pleasing striped effect! The Deerfield is softer and more luxurious feeling, but the Northfield is just so perfect that I can't make up my mind which I like better. Looking forward to using them both again in future projects.
