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?

        Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

        This is my second light winter top with this yarn. People are surprised to know it is hand knitted, the first wash evens out all the stitches and it looks perfect. Feels smooth and squishy against the skin. I wear the one i made ladt year and it still looks and feels mew.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I live on the other side of the planet and my order arrived within a couple of weeks. I find Webs reliable and very helpful.

        I used this to knit a poncho using a Churchmouse pattern. I wanted it for a trip I am taking to cooler weather. The yarn was easy to use and knit up pretty quickly.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

          This is a lovely yarn to use - soft, forgiving, with beautiful stitch definition. Colors are pleasing and evenly dyed, and the yarn feels good in your hands. I am making a shawl with both lace and plain sections, and the yarn is handling both beautifully. It wound out of the skein flawlessly, has no knots, and has not given me the slightest problem of any kind - and it looks great! What else can you ask for? Not blingy or showy, a great choice for daytime wear items. This is quickly becoming one of my favorites, and I will absolutely use this again. As usual, Webs delivery was amazingly fast. Very pleased.

                    Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

                    This yarn is perfect for next-to-skin items, as it is soft, silky and not at all scratchy. It can split a little, so care should be taken while knitting to catch all of the plies. It should be washed carefully, cold gentle machine cycle is fine, and dried flat (no dryers). It would make perfect heirloom gifts; it shows cable patterns beautifully and would work just as well for lace.

                      Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

                      I purchased this yarn to make socks and so far I have used it to make 3 pair.

                      This yarn makes a lovely, durable sock. Very soft to the touch with the added silk and polyamide for strength.

                      When I first started working with it I found that it split easier than some of the yarns I had used previously, especially because I was using extra pointy needles to create fancy stitches and cables and I was trying to work a fairly dense fabric for socks. But after a time I improved my technique and splitting is rarely an issue for me now.

                      This is a very affordable yarn for the type of yarn and I love this about it as well.

                      Anyway, it is a favored yarn for me to use on socks and gloves. I think it would make lovely scarves and shawls because of the sheen but so far I've only used the yarn on smaller items.
