    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.

          First: I think this is a worsted, not a DK.
          Next: I bought this for a cardigan and it's been lovely so far. I've snagged it a couple times but I wouldn't call it particularly splitty - the first time involved a cat and the second was a broken stitch marker. It's making a lovely fabric and I can't wait to wear it.

            This yarn is so soft and great to work with. The silk gives it just a little sheen that makes it special. It's my go-to yarn for gifts!

                I got this as a gift for my girlfriend who knits, so I don't really know how it handles when knitting, but it looks and feels amazing. I got her several other yarns and this was by far the nicest yarn I bought.

                  I used this yarn in a multi-colored modular sweater. It has good deep, rich, clear color. I think it will not pill too easily due to how tightly it was spun, time will tell. It has a lovely texture, sheen and drape, I want more!

                        I bought this to make a scarf for my daughter. This yarn is easy to work with, very good quality and super soft. It feels so nice to work with, I don't want to put it down. I think, for the price, it is a good value. I liked it so muich, I bought more to make my daughter and her boyfriend hats. I highly recommend it!

                          This was a lovely yarn to knit with. I've now made 4 cowls using different colors, which I gave as Christmas gifts. Nice definition for the lace. Blocked really well. Good texture, hand and drape. Assuming will wear well, too!
