    Great Yarn - Make Sure You Block Your Swatch

    Deerfield in Burgundy colorway is wonderful! Soft, lustrous, no color bleed when soaking. I suggest you make sure you block your swatch, as gauge changed significantly after wet-blocking.

    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:

      This is a lovely yarn which practically knit itself into the garment. The drape is soft and elegant. It was a pleasure to knit with. The yarn was perfect for the capelet, making it the garment I had envisioned.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield:

        What a great DK weight yarn. I am crocheting the #591 Warrant Cardigan designed by Sara Delaney and am so happy with both the Deerfield and Northfield yarns. Also love the very subtle difference in shades of navy between the two yarns that results in a pleasing striped effect! The Deerfield is softer and more luxurious feeling, but the Northfield is just so perfect that I can't make up my mind which I like better. Looking forward to using them both again in future projects.

                    I am crocheting the Warrant Cardigan with Northfirld and Deerfield yarns. I love the tonal effect these yarns deliver and they are very soft. This will be a "go-to" sweater when I finish.

                    Good service, prompt delivery. I'll be back for more products.

                        Repeatedly ripped so I spent lots of time ripping out and fixing holes. The burgundy bled on my fingers and onto the cream yarn. Really frustrated as I was so excited about using this yarn for a shawl.

                          Yummy soft yarn with great colors. Knits well and feels good in the hand. Seems to work well for fair isle, where too much weight can be a problem. Not too warm, which is great as spring approaches. I knit on an 8, and get a nice airy hand, even though it says to knit on a smaller needle -- i just pick a size smaller on the pattern, and it works just fine :) (always check gauge, but if you can figure out the math, you may like this approach)
