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 used this yarn to go with some hand dyed multi and hand dyed semi-solid to make the Ashburn Shawl - a paid pattern on Ravelry.

      The weight of this fingering is incredible. It has a nice sheen, glow. Feels scrumptious.

      I will certainly purchase this product again. I would give it as a gift.

      Delivery was fine. Yarn.com is always good about service and delivery.

          Yarn washes up really soft, yet there is good stitch definition on my lace items.

          The service is always top-notch here. Phone people are friendly and helpful. Delivery? I think they ship my yarn while it's still in the planning stages in my mind!

                This is my second light winter top with this yarn. People are surprised to know it is hand knitted, the first wash evens out all the stitches and it looks perfect. Feels smooth and squishy against the skin. I wear the one i made ladt year and it still looks and feels mew.

                I live on the other side of the planet and my order arrived within a couple of weeks. I find Webs reliable and very helpful.

                  This is a lovely yarn to use - soft, forgiving, with beautiful stitch definition. Colors are pleasing and evenly dyed, and the yarn feels good in your hands. I am making a shawl with both lace and plain sections, and the yarn is handling both beautifully. It wound out of the skein flawlessly, has no knots, and has not given me the slightest problem of any kind - and it looks great! What else can you ask for? Not blingy or showy, a great choice for daytime wear items. This is quickly becoming one of my favorites, and I will absolutely use this again. As usual, Webs delivery was amazingly fast. Very pleased.
