Love this yarn

I used 2 skeins to knit a small shawl for a charity auction. It produced a stunning product that was much fought over. Easy to knit with. Hard to let go.

The color was beautiful and yarn soft. I used it in a pattern with a Charlemont solid. The solid worked very well. The kettle-dyed became very fuzzy--it had a greyish fuzz, almost like dust bunnies. Ended up starting over with a different yarn. I will try knitting something else with it to see if I can determine if there is another cause for the fuzzing (like type of needle). The quality of other Valley yarns is very high. So this one was a real disappointment.

                This yarn is so beautiful and in lovely colors. I especially like tonal yarns and soft ones with a bit of silk to add a soft sheen. I used this yarn for lace knitting and was very pleased with the results.
