      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?

          There are many patterns for shawl made with fingering weight these days and this yarn works great for them. It also comes in such lovely colors.

            Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

            The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars is because I'm in the process of knitting a little summer cardigan and haven't had an opportunity to see how the yarn blocks and changes after it is washed and worn.

            Otherwise, I can say that the Mulberry color is very pretty and knits up with very even stockinette stitches. Good yardage; I'll get a small 34" short sleeve cardi out of 2 skeins.

                I used this yarn in a beaded lace shawl project. Not only was this yarn amazing to work with, it had the added strength to withstand stringing and restringing 5,000+ 6/0 beads. I would definitely use this yarn again for another project.

                    Very nice yarn for knitting. Soft. Has a soft sheen. Did not split easily. The color was consistant and small amount of bleeding in the wash (to be expected). Two drawbacks. First I think this will pill. I can see the signs. Second The nylon in this yarn makes it stretch like crazy after washing. My scarf grew quit a bit but It was still beautiful. I like Valley Northfield better.

                      I used this yarn for a pair of gloves (only took half the skein). It was easy to use, good stitch definition, correcting and reknitting didn't affect quality. Rich color and very little bleeding when hand-washed.
