      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!).

                Even though it was a different dye lot, the few skeins I needed to finish my sweater blended in well.

                  I am crocheting the Warrant Cardigan with Northfirld and Deerfield yarns. I love the tonal effect these yarns deliver and they are very soft. This will be a "go-to" sweater when I finish.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Good service, prompt delivery. I'll be back for more products.

                      Repeatedly ripped so I spent lots of time ripping out and fixing holes. The burgundy bled on my fingers and onto the cream yarn. Really frustrated as I was so excited about using this yarn for a shawl.

                        Yummy soft yarn with great colors. Knits well and feels good in the hand. Seems to work well for fair isle, where too much weight can be a problem. Not too warm, which is great as spring approaches. I knit on an 8, and get a nice airy hand, even though it says to knit on a smaller needle -- i just pick a size smaller on the pattern, and it works just fine :) (always check gauge, but if you can figure out the math, you may like this approach)

                            This is beautifull yarn that feels wonderful when knitting and isn't too heavy. This will be my second DK weight sweater. I wear the other one all the time because it's just the right weight -- not too heavy, not too warm. Can't wait to wear this one! Plus the colors are gorgeous and saturated. Just like the photos
