      Love the softness and drape of this yarn. Colours were true. It was a pleasure to knit. I used it to make a lightweight cardigan. Blocked nicely. Sadly, it started pilling right away. A bit disappointed.

      Suggest should knit at a much tighter gauge to reduce pilling, but perhaps won't drape as nice?

        Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

        Purchased for the price and color (on sale and "natural") to edge afghan motifs. A bit splitty for use in crochet, I have to slow down to correct split stitches. But for the value and the perfect color for my "scrap" project, it's great. I'd love to knit a sweater or shawl from this yarn, I think those are the best uses.

            Made a beautiful shawl for my niece, who will be in a wedding in the fall, and ordered the navy blue to match her gown. The bit of shine on the yarn makes the shawl very elegant. Great yardage!

                          I have used this yarn more times than I can recall to knit socks and shawls. It knits up so beautifully and wears very well. The mulberry silk gives it a very slight sheen. I would give it five stars if only there were more colour options available.

                            I have ordered from WEBS ... and service and delivery are always great and fast. Each order I have made have each only taken 5 (business)days to reach me.
