First time user but now a devotee. Color "Sunset" was just drop-dead gorgeous and perfect for my friend who will be getting my finished project as a Christmas gift. This yarn is as top quality as one can get or use. I've paid lots more for lesser quality yarn. I'll stick with Charlemont for future fingering weight projects.

Love the softness and drape of this yarn. Colours were true. It was a pleasure to knit. I used it to make a lightweight cardigan. Blocked nicely. Sadly, it started pilling right away. A bit disappointed.

Suggest should knit at a much tighter gauge to reduce pilling, but perhaps won't drape as nice?

    I knit 5 stoles for my daughter's wedding. One in Thistle for the bride and 4 in Light Grey for the bridesmaids. The yarn was consistent in appearance and color over 7 different skeins of the grey. It was a pleasure to work with and I will use it again.

        I am making a very lacy sweater for my daughter. The yarn is really soft and luxurious feeling and is taking the pattern well. Of course I haven't washed it yet but with the quality I see so far, I'm sure it will be fine. I really like this yarn.

            I love knitting shawls with Charlemont. It gives great stitch definition. Knitting a shawl with twisted stitches, this yarn makes them stand out more than any other yarn I have used. I consider this to be better than some high end yarns that I have knit with in color, softness, and stitch definition.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

              I am knitting socks on a circular sock machine that I purchased 2 months ago. The yarn is smooth and easy to machine knit.

              The socks made from this yarn look amazing and feel great. I have washed some of the socks made from this yarn several times and they look and feel like new. There is a small amount of felting in the heel and ball of foot area but nothing unusual or detracting. The colors appear stable and I have not seen significant bleeding. I do however hand wash these socks so far and allow to dry on a rack. I have not seen any snagging.

              The yarn is somewhat thinner than other yarns I have used to date which is good for summer socks as well as dressier socks.

              I am sure I will purchase this yarn again.

                I did not that the cream color is a touch thinner than the colored ones. In the shawl I am making that is not a problem but might be in some projects.

                  Comments about Valley Yarns Charlemont:

                  I hate to do it, but I'm writing a second review as I'm nearly done with my shawl. (I pledge to never again write a review before actually knitting the yarn.)
                  I just don't care for the yarn. It's quite splitty, not so fun with lots of SSKs and K2Ts. And it doesn't have a nice twist, so the finished fabric isn't as perfect-looking as it could be. There were a couple of spots with little felty clumps. I'd rate it a 3, so the 2 is to counterbalance my previous rating of 4.
