Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield 250 Gram Hanks:

I love Northfield, and have used it in many projects. I used it for a sweater I have wanted to make for many years, the pattern calling for a worsted yarn. Although a DK, I made gauge. Northfield knits up beautifully, and because it is cable plied, it makes your stitch work just "POP", and it is silky soft. My only complaint is that, because I am a combo knitter, it unravels when I knit.
Northfield has a gorgeous hand to it and wears quite well. Better yet, it is reasonably priced for a yarn with this particular fiber content.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield 250 Gram Hanks:

    I love this yarn. It is silky and springy and dyes well. I got the new 100 gm size, and it is easy to dye. I had first tried knitting the dyed 50 gm balls, and just loved the feel and sleek appearance of this yarn. The undyed hanks are no different you just get to pick your own colors. The yarn is soft and holds up well with no pilling, and this yarn is not at all itchy to my sensitive skin.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield 250 Gram Hanks:

    I ordered this nice yarn in the big 250 gram hank for a project that requires that much yardage. But unfortunately when I received it I found that it was too heavy and unwieldy to wind into balls by hand, so I returned it for 5 of the smaller 50 gram skeins.

      excellent

      Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield 250 Gram Hanks:

      I got a couple of the 50 gr hanks to test with - knitted a swatch and carried it in my pocket for 3 weeks. there wasn't a single pill and the stitches still had nice definition and looked great. I then bought these large hanks and dyed them and am currently working on a cabled sweater. It's a dream to work with and has become my "go to" for many of my projects.

      Lovely to use

      Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield 250 Gram Hanks:

      This yarn is lovely to the touch and to knit. I'm knitting a throw as a wedding gift so the natural color is perfect. The stitches are well defined and the yarn has great spring and is amazingly soft. A great deal also. I'm using a bamboo stitch and I know that I'm going to be proud to send this off to the new couple. I'm going to purchase the yarn in colors to make a sweater for myself. Just yummy!
