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:

I am currently using this yarn to knit up a shawl. When searching for a yarn, I wanted something that was going to be super soft, but not fuzzy, and will show the YO"s and decreases nicely. The nice thing about this yarn is the yardage/price as well as the ability to use various size needles. So far I haven't had many problem with it. However, like most yarns, the individual strands do separate sometimes so just be aware of that. The strands also snag easily but again, this happens with a lot of yarns. For an experienced knitter, this yarn is great! I would not use this yarn as a beginner.

    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.
