                  Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

                  I made a wide lacy scarf with lots of eyelets and picot edges. It blocked so light and lovely! It was a pleasure to knit with this yarn. Relaxing as it was simple to use - yet elegant to the touch. The colors are brilliant. This was bought with a gift card from a work friend who I gave the scarf to as a surprise.

                      This yarn was recommended for the Galene Cowl. I wear a coat with Velcro closings and when the yarn gets new velcro it pulls bad. So beware. It knits up very nicely.

                              I'm working on a shawl. The yarn is wonderful to work with and I think the shawl will drape nicely. But that's the Charlemont side of it. The color is incredible - I chose Waterfall and the blues truly flow like water while still allowing for a nice stitch definition. The Kangaroo Dyer has done a spectacular job shading this yarn. I'm looking forward to another project when this is finished.
