Love the softness and drape of this yarn. Colours were true. It was a pleasure to knit. I used it to make a lightweight cardigan. Blocked nicely. Sadly, it started pilling right away. A bit disappointed.

Suggest should knit at a much tighter gauge to reduce pilling, but perhaps won't drape as nice?

        I knit socks with the previous yarn, Charlemont Kettle Dye, and they feel great, look great and are wearing well. I'm hoping this new Charlemont does the same. Would love to have the kettle dye product back, too.

            I just received the yarn, I'm making my first shawl. I see several spots where the twist is loose or something. But it is pretty and soft.

            I called Webs, as I've done before to ask about a color. I said that Thistle looks like grey with slight lavender undertones. She said: It's definitely grey, yes with some lavender undertones. But I'm here to tell you that in every light I've looked at it under, and held next to grey yarn, it's lavender. That's not a bad thing, but don't order it thinking it's grey.

              First time user but now a devotee. Color "Sunset" was just drop-dead gorgeous and perfect for my friend who will be getting my finished project as a Christmas gift. This yarn is as top quality as one can get or use. I've paid lots more for lesser quality yarn. I'll stick with Charlemont for future fingering weight projects.

                        The yarn knits up to a wonderful fabric. At first I thought it was a little coarse, but the softness on my skin when knit up was very nice. I made a sweater top and this yarn shows great stitch definition.

                        Highly recommend this yarn!
