This is my new favorite yarn. I recently completed a cabled sweater using Northampton Sport and could not be more pleased. The cables really pop and the weight of the sweater is perfect. (A cabled sweater in worsted can be too heavy to wear indoors.) I promptly ordered two more sweaters' worth to have in stash. I may need to stash more...

The color I ordered was "Ocean Heather" which is a medium blue. The skein I received wasn't even close. It is a very dark teal, almost dark green. Not at all what I wanted as I am using it for a colorwork cowl with ivory :(

Very Nice Yarn

Pros

  • Good stitch definition
  • Nice Hand Feel

Cons

      Comments about Valley Yarns Northampton Sport:

      I'm using this yarn for a color stranded cardigan. The colors are beautiful and the yarn is forgiving. I'm really enjoying working with this yarn.

      Word of warning though, although I love the colors the photos are not color accurate. In person the colors are darker and deeper than what is pictured. I ordered the ocean heather and there is more green in it than the photo represents. This worked out for me, but if waiting to do color work proceed with caution.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Yarn was delivered promptly.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Northampton Sport:

      I used this with cream color to knit 2-color gloves. It shows both colors really well. I haven't washed the gloves yet, so I can't comment on how well the definition holds up. Soft and easy to work with.

              I am currently knitting a sweater with Northampton Sport and am so pleased with the results that I ordered two additional sweaters' worth of this yarn. The stitch definition is fantastic and cables really pop. It is a pleasure to work with and a true bargain at the price. I will buy this yarn again and again.

                Still knitting the sweater, and the yarn seems to knit up beautifully...nice soft fabric created.
                I hesitate to order again, due to getting such a
                different shade of blue than the picture advertised.
                Once I got over the shock, I decided I would knit it
                up anyway, since I like this color too.

                  Good, basic, all-wool sport-weight. I'm knitting a lighter-weight Aran, and am pleased with the stitch definition.
