        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.

        Very soft

        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 am making a shawl with the latest batch of this yarn, but I've made hats, fingerless gloves and socks with this wool. I highly recommend it because it has great stitch definition if you're using it for lace patterns, and makes good, durable socks.

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

                The yarn is beautiful, however I felt a little let down for 2 reasons: The color range I received did not look anything like the picture - which is ok, but not. I ordered 2 skeins and did not notice until I had used most of the first one, that they were dramatically different (like day and night, light and dark). So the shawl has a light and a dark end. Otherwise wonderful yarn in beuatiful shades of purple/green/blues....

                                    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.
