Product Details

Valley Yarns Northampton is a workhorse yarn that you'll come back to time and time again. We sourced a soft Peruvian wool and dyed it in a beautiful collection of solid colors and heathered shades. It is a dream to felt and a superb choice for garments, blankets, and accessories especially cabled or colorwork projects! Northampton is beautiful and economical, too.

New to knitting or crochet? Valley Yarns Northampton is the perfect choice for those who are just starting out or looking to hone their skills. Well-defined, easy to see stitches make for much less guesswork when it comes to figuring out where your needles or hook should go next. Once you've mastered the basics, Valley Yarns Northampton rises magnificently to the challenge of more complicated designs.

I use this yarn for throws. Works well, good stitch definition.

While it's not the best yarn ever spun, Valley Yarns Northampton is a perfectly good workhorse yarn at an excellent price point. I purchase a lot of it for gifts and larger projects to keep costs under control. There are many colorways to choose from, some pretty unique (not sure I've ever seen another yarn that is quite like Twilight Heather.)


This is a great all-around wool yarn. Very soft and easy to handle. Have knitted hat and sweater from it. Would like to see more heathers, especially in red palette.


The yarn is a good, sturdy wool that is easy to use and has a great color selection.


Great worsted weight wool yarn. I have knitted this at 4.5 as well as 5 stitches per inch and it works up beautifully in either gauge. Soft and warm, I have made Lopi multi color sweater patterns with this and I am very pleased with the colors and weight. Also knitted Yankee Knitter roll neck sweaters with this. Came out great. Highly recommend! 👍

I am a knitting teacher and I use Valley Yarns Northampton yarn for all my students. It has great texture and definition. The colors are gorgeous and it knits up beautifully.

Perfect yarn for my cardigan!


I have used this yarn for a variety of projects including hats, scarves, sweaters and afghans. I have always been totally satisfied with the finished results. Wonderful color choices.


Great yarn for knitting convertible gloves. A softer yarn would not work.
