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.

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 bought several colors to use as background and contrast for gradient and long color run yarn shawls. It blends beautifully with a lot of the indie dyer silk blend yarns, and is lovely to work with.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

          I would describe it as fingering yarn. It made a beautiful shawl. Mine has a lacy pattern and it required soaking and stretching in the blocking method. All went well! The final product is lovely. Also, I had a hard time with the first few pattern steps and it the yarn held up beautifully with repeated attempts.

                    I am using this yarn to crochet an afghan. It is extremely soft and easy to work with. The yarn has a slight sheen that gives the solid color some beautiful depth.

                      After knitting sweaters for a couple of years wanted to return to socks so chose this yard for the fiber content and colors, two skeins in two different colors. Very satisfied with it. Knits easily, with no splitting even though working on small needles. Would definitely order again
