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.

Comments about VALLEY YARNS Northampton:

I used this yarn to knit a hooded cardigan and wore it in England where my girlfriend immediately fell in love with the color way and feel of the yarn. So now she is in queue for a pullover Aran out of it. I love that this yarn is NOT superwash, which to me removes all the lovely characteristics of the wool! I also love all the color choices! This yarn is a favorite!
