    I'm allergic to wool, so this is a great substitute. I really love the way the yarn drapes and has a weight to it. Plus I wanted to knit something that wouldn't be too warm in the Fall or Spring and this material is perfect for it. You'll see from the picture that I'm still working ont this sweater but that it displays great deifinition.

    For sweaters and hats. This yarn has a beautifull color palette, but it splits. I do not know if the other colors are the same as the dark blue one. I feel discouraged to finish my sweater. It has been a tedious labor to get below the arm holes. I gave it 3 stars for the color.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

      I am making a light summer sweater for travelling. It does unravel quite easily so I had to watch not to split the yarn. The sweater looks a little more "rustic" than I had hoped, but I still like it

      I used this yarn to crochet a vest. It was easy to work with and the vest turned out great. I machine-washed it and the yarn held up very well. My vest is soft and drapes very well. I will definitely use this yarn again for future projects.

        Made a ruched sweater for my granddaughter. Because the yarn is soft, the gathers fall very nicely.

            I've made a book cover with this and am working on a top with it. I love the yarn! The plies do split easily, but this doesn't really bother me that much. It does bother some people though.

            I was doubtful about crocheting a summer sweater, but the yarn made the project! It is colorful and easy to work with. Though the yarn does split easily when crocheting, but it was easy to take out and re-hook.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

              I've used Longmeadow for two sweaters and have been quite pleased with the results. It shows off cables and lace work very well, and blocks nicely. It withstood repeated frogging (it took 5 attempts of reknitting blocks of 10 rows or more to get the layout of a lace pattern correct). The yarn remained looking new during this frogging marathon! I wear my sweater often, and it's yet to pill. This yarn wears extremely well. It is my go-to yarn when I need a worsted cotton, and for summer sweaters.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Fast shipping.

                I used this yarn for a short-sleeved top and love the way it knit and feels when I wear it. Got some other colors to stock up.
