Valley Yarns Deerfield

Valley Yarns Deerfield is a glorious blend of baby alpaca and silk that has a delicate feel and appearance - but also strength, due to the silk. 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 used this yarn and made a sweater for my daughter using the 471 Kohl Lace Pullover pattern. My daughter loves the sweater. This yarn has a soft, springy feel. The quality and color was good through out all 10 balls I used on the project.
    However, the product description says this yarn is a DK weight, but I thought it was slightly thicker than that. I would not call it a worsted weight either, but it is between DK and Worsted in my book. This sweater turned out nice, but the yarn was heavier than I expected.

    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!).

      My only regret with this yarn is that I have a limit on my budget. This and Goshen have become my two most favorite yarns. I love to knit with them, the feel and look, and I'm proud of what I knit because it looks so good.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield:

          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.

          This yarn is velvety; I am making a crewneck sweater with cable ribbing. although it is loosely spun, it rarely splits which is a great plus!

                Comments about Valley Yarns Deerfield:

                My niece requested a black crochet hat, and the Deerfield turned out to be a lovely choice. Incredibly soft and silky, light in the skein but with a satisfying weight to the finished project, the hat is comfortable and warm. Deerfield is loosely twisted and can be a bit splitty during crocheting, but I would definitely use it again. The silk content means it frogs fairly easily 2 or 3 times (after that it does start stick to itself). The alpaca content allowed me to use spit-joins when starting a new skein - fewer ends to weave in! I didn't block the finished hat, so I don't know if this yarn would "grow" or not with wetting; if you think your project will need to be washed, be sure to swatch and block. A very good value for the money.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was very prompt. I ran short of yarn near the end of my project and had to order an extra skein. WEBS matched the original lot number for me - thanks WEBS! :)
