I made a wide lacy scarf with lots of eyelets and picot edges. It blocked so light and lovely! It was a pleasure to knit with this yarn. Relaxing as it was simple to use - yet elegant to the touch. The colors are brilliant. This was bought with a gift card from a work friend who I gave the scarf to as a surprise.

Took four months to receive. Color range was minimal, photo showed wide color variations. Initially thought wrong yarn was sent, that it was a solid color until I put it on my swift.

I know hand dyed yarns are not predictable in color but the lack of variation was really surprising.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

    I am making a shawl for my daughter. The way the yarn is dyed, the color variations are beautiful. The yarn is soft and doesn't split easily, making it really nice to work with. It has a nice drape and will be enough to keep her warm on cool nights.

          The yarn was beautiful but the color was not at all as pictured in the catalog. Had to return it. Shipping was fast, however.

          Pros

          • Beautiful Yarn
          • Colors Absolutely Yummy
          • Lovely To Work With

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • I Am Making A Shawl
            • Totally Anything You Want

            Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

            Use single for any pattern calling for fingerling yarn or double for patterns calling for thicker yarn.
            This yarn feels great as you are working with it and the color progression is bright and great fun.
            I can't think of anything I don't like about it.
            If you enjoy great color and very special soft yarn you are in for a treat as you are working with it and as a finished product.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

              I love to knit shawls, and I particularly like to knit lace. This product is terrific, and the colors make even the simplest pattern special and beautiful. I highly recommend the Falling Leaves Shawl pattern using any color of this yarn. The pattern knits up fast, makes a great wrap, and would make a perfect to gift for Christmas.

                This yarn is truly exquisite and results in a lovely, draped accessory. Kudos to the producer of this hand-dyed yarn. Will be using another colorway soon.
                Used the colorway Fall Festival for a stole/scarf. Pattern: Falling Leaves.
                I can't say enough good things about the results.
