    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.

    This yarn is so soft and great to work with. The silk gives it just a little sheen that makes it special. It's my go-to yarn for gifts!

        I got this as a gift for my girlfriend who knits, so I don't really know how it handles when knitting, but it looks and feels amazing. I got her several other yarns and this was by far the nicest yarn I bought.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

          I used this yarn in a multi-colored modular sweater. It has good deep, rich, clear color. I think it will not pill too easily due to how tightly it was spun, time will tell. It has a lovely texture, sheen and drape, I want more!

                I bought this to make a scarf for my daughter. This yarn is easy to work with, very good quality and super soft. It feels so nice to work with, I don't want to put it down. I think, for the price, it is a good value. I liked it so muich, I bought more to make my daughter and her boyfriend hats. I highly recommend it!

                  This was a lovely yarn to knit with. I've now made 4 cowls using different colors, which I gave as Christmas gifts. Nice definition for the lace. Blocked really well. Good texture, hand and drape. Assuming will wear well, too!

                  Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

                  I am knitting a cowl with this yarn. The pattern has lots of stitches - 328 cast on, then knit in the round. While I feel this yarn will be look fine, knitting with it is not enjoyable as my hands and fingernails tend to to snag it easily. Also, the yarn is rather slippery and I tend to drop stitches often.
