Even though we love all of our Valley Yarns, Northampton has become a fast favorite! We sourced the softest wool we could find and dyed it in a beautiful collection of solid colors and heathered shades. It is a dream to felt and soft enough for cozy garments. Northampton is beautiful and economical, too. Made in Peru.

Let me begin with a disclaimer--I love Valley Yarns, they tend to be my favorites. This was my first time using Northampton. I found a sweater in the Interweave Knits that I wanted to knit and I check Twitter every morning to see what the "Yarn of the Day" is. As fate would have it, the yarn of the day was Northampton and I got a great price on it, so I forged ahead and bought the yarn, moving this sweater project to the top of my list. Just finished the sweater last week and it is lovely. The yarn is very nice to work with, very soft, nice cabling, everything about this yarn was perfect. I look forward to many more projects with Northampton by Valley Yarns.

I bought this yarn as part of the Mystery Afghan project. It's not yarn I would normally buy and won't buy again. I wish they had offered a more upscale and softer yarn for the afghan even if it was more expensive. Now I feel like I'm putting in a ton of effort that will result in a "nice" Afghan, but not a fantastic one, which is what I would have preferred.

      I've used this yarn for sweaters and mittens. It spit splices well. It's not really coarse and not really soft. It's somewhere in the middle. I really like the yardage that this comes in, too.

                      I guess you get what you pay for. I did not like this wool at all. Coarse, poor stitch definition, flat coloration. I would not buy this again.
