      Comments about Valley Yarns BFL Fingering Natural Hanks:

      I'm a consistently loose knitter who usually has to go down two needle sizes to achieve gauge with any given pattern, so this review will no doubt benefit loose knitters like me. For those who aren't loose knitters, I see no reason why you'd have difficulties with this yarn. The socks I made by holding the yarn double (and achieving sport/dk weight) show no signs of wear after a few uses and -- best of all -- have proven themselves to be machine-washable, despite the care instructions provided by WEBS.

      For loose knitters, I want to note that I was aiming for a gauge of 34 sts/4" and could only achieve a thin 31 sts/4" on US 000 needles. The socks I made with this yarn were accomplished by making them toe-up, two-at-a-time on US 5 needles (so as to use up as much of the yarn as possible, given that I was unlikely to want to use it again).

      Overall, this yarn would be great for tight knitters or those who find their gauge is usually spot-on. For me, it's a no-go.

          I used this yarn to knit several pairs of gloves and socks in the natural cream colour of the wool. It was a dream to workwith and I would recommend it to anybody looking for this sort of creamy white in a natural yarn.

            Natural dyeing demonstration over camp fires with local plants and blossoms.Due to demonstration conditions I had a casual attitude toward temperatures of dye pots, but wool stayed soft and dyed well.

                This yarn takes dye beautifully and knits nicely. Just the right twist-- and it isn't splitty. I have not blocked it yet but it is pretty soft already.
