It has a slight sheen in an elegant color palette. Valley Yarns Deerfield is perfect for any project that calls for a DK weight yarn, and it produces cozy finished garments that you can wear anytime - day or night! Made in Peru.

I made a basketweave cowl with this and it is SOO soft- I never want to take it off. I am concerned that it may stretch out over time, due to the loose stitch, so I made it slightly smaller than what I would usually do.

I knitted a scarf, it is one of my most soft and warm scarf I have, only problem... it rubbed off on my fingers while I was knitting... Not fun at all! ... I had to wash it after with vinegar to "seal" the colour (deep blue!).

Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield:

Making a jacket. A first I didn't think it would work out but then I decided I like it. It doesn't really split but the alpaca in it wants to stick to the other stitches. I do like the color and the softness is wonderful. Just had to get used to working with it. I would use metal needles with not too sharp a tip if I was going to advice anyone on anything. Stitches look like I want them to look so feel it's a great product for the price.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield:

        This is the first time I have worked with an Alpaca/Silk combo. I am now a "blend" addict and this is absolutely the perfect blend of both fibers. I am working on a checkerboard cowl and carry my project with me everywhere. Everybody wants to feel this yarn because of both the color (orchid) and the sheen (the silk). My personal addiction is to the alpaca, which on it's own, is hard to tame. This project is a pleasure to knit because of Deerfield yarn blend. Love it.
