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!).

            I ordered the navy blue and it is the most beautiful dark shade. It really does feel soo very soft, too. I definitely need to knit it in daylight hours, but it will be absolutely gorgeous when I finish. I'm making a relatively large jacket, so it will be a while, since as a lot of enthusiasts of knitting, I have several projects going at the same time.

              I am knitting the Driftwood hooded sweater from Rowan Classic beach book. (Lots of cables) It is coming out really well. It's soft and the color is beautiful. I can't wait to wear it.

                    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.

                      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.
