    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!).

        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.

                      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.

                          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.
