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 party from light gray (lavender) and gray. The yarn was soft and easy to work, even with the complicated lace pattern I chose. I Made a 6th stole from the color sunset for a person that help me with the planning and execution of the reception, but found the hand of the yarn much different. Not particularly pleasant. Maybe it was the dye. I would still recommend this yarn.

              I bought several colors to use as background and contrast for gradient and long color run yarn shawls. It blends beautifully with a lot of the indie dyer silk blend yarns, and is lovely to work with.

                  I would describe it as fingering yarn. It made a beautiful shawl. Mine has a lacy pattern and it required soaking and stretching in the blocking method. All went well! The final product is lovely. Also, I had a hard time with the first few pattern steps and it the yarn held up beautifully with repeated attempts.
