First time user but now a devotee. Color "Sunset" was just drop-dead gorgeous and perfect for my friend who will be getting my finished project as a Christmas gift. This yarn is as top quality as one can get or use. I've paid lots more for lesser quality yarn. I'll stick with Charlemont for future fingering weight projects.

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?

          After knitting sweaters for a couple of years wanted to return to socks so chose this yard for the fiber content and colors, two skeins in two different colors. Very satisfied with it. Knits easily, with no splitting even though working on small needles. Would definitely order again

            I knit 5 stoles for my daughter's wedding. One in Thistle for the bride and 4 in Light Grey for the bridesmaids. The yarn was consistent in appearance and color over 7 different skeins of the grey. It was a pleasure to work with and I will use it again.

                I am making a very lacy sweater for my daughter. The yarn is really soft and luxurious feeling and is taking the pattern well. Of course I haven't washed it yet but with the quality I see so far, I'm sure it will be fine. I really like this yarn.

                    Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

                    I love knitting shawls with Charlemont. It gives great stitch definition. Knitting a shawl with twisted stitches, this yarn makes them stand out more than any other yarn I have used. I consider this to be better than some high end yarns that I have knit with in color, softness, and stitch definition.
