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?

        The fine gauge means it takes forever to knit something large. But then, isn't that what we like to do? It's a real WOW factor.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

              I used this yarn to go with some hand dyed multi and hand dyed semi-solid to make the Ashburn Shawl - a paid pattern on Ravelry.

              The weight of this fingering is incredible. It has a nice sheen, glow. Feels scrumptious.

              I will certainly purchase this product again. I would give it as a gift.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was fine. Yarn.com is always good about service and delivery.

                Not expensive but worth every penny. This yarn was a dream to work with and even better to wear. I will consider it for all lace, shawl, scarf and sock patterns in the future.

                        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.

                        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.
