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.

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.

This is undoubtedly the worst plain worsted wool yarn I have ever knit with. It has no bounce or loft. The yarn structure collapses when knit, so the stitches are misshapen. It is very very inexpensive, so I should have anticipated how awful it is. Spend the money on Cascade 220, it is a far superior product. I plan to use this yarn for a felting project instead of the sweater I bought if for. Let's hope its awful qualities are disguised by felting. It doesn't pay to ship such inexpensive yarn back for a refund.

Good, reliable yarn

Comments about 4.49 Northampton:

I like the Valley Northampton yarn. I just purchased the Dark Grey and am knitting an afghan with it, holding the yarn double. I would describe the color as a heathered light charcoal with some ash tones. The yarn is not the softest I've worked with, but it has some body to it, which I like. I knit with slippery needles, and if my work accidentally slides off, the stitches stay defined enough so that it's easy to get them back on the needles. I rarely come across any bad spots in the yarn which is another plus. Overall, I think this is one of the best values in wool yarns.

              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.

                Yarn has great stitch definition & beautiful colors. It is soft & gives luxury look to garments knitted with it.
                I love this brand & work with it couple years. My customers like items knitted with them.
