I just finished knitting a sweater with Northfield in Charcoal and I love the way it feels on your hands as you knit. I love the way it feels when I wear it! And it drapes beautifully. As I expected, this blend of alpaca, silk, and merino grew during wet blocking. I found that it split a little, especially after ripping out a few rows to correct mistakes, but not enough to be a major concern.
I bought this on sale but even for the regular price it feels like a much more expensive yarn.

I bought this yarn to make a hat. It was the yarn specified in the pattern. I got a good price because the color was on a closeout. The yarn splits way too easily - I have to be quite careful as I knit. In spite of that, the resulting fabric is pretty, soft, with a nice sheen and drape. Would I buy it again? No.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

        I made 2 lace shawls with the Lonely Tree pattern, one in medium gray and one deep water blue. They had great stitch definition, good texture, opened up easily in blocking and felt so soft! I think that the dye affects the stretchiness of the yarn. The blue shawl knitted up looser and opened up larger in the blocking. Although I finished the pattern in the gray with 1 skein, I had to abbreviate the pattern in blue as I was running out of yarn. I will use this yarn again and again for DK weight projects! It would be great for baby items!

                Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

                I bought this yarn because of its weight and great price, and I'm so glad I did! It knits up beautifully, with lovely stitch definition. I'm making a cardigan with a patterned stitch, and it's just lovely! It's also very pleasant to knit with, feeling nice and soft and silky as I knit. The slight sheen is another plus. I'll definitely use Northfield again!

                Service and delivery comments:

                My order arrived quickly, even factoring in the fact that I live in Europe. The package was intact and so I have no complaints, and will most assuredly order from Webs again.

                  Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

                  This yarn is a great buy. Many merino/alpaca/silk blends are more costly. I found the color to be darker than what I saw at WEBS but I like the color. Perhaps it is hard to show the true color of a twisted yarn.

                      I love this yarn. I've purchased it three consecutive times now, and I'm planning to make a couple of sweaters with it in the future - just to give you an idea of how much I've enjoyed knitting with it.

                      I love the grape color. I'm excitedly awaiting the delivery of 3 balls of navy for a gift.
