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.

This is a good yarn and I was able to make gauge for project I have in mind, but the color was not what I was looking for. Will keep in my stash.

I've used northampton wool for my felted hats for many years. Perfect

Northampton yarn is a very good value. I also like the yardage, the large color selection and the fact that it comes as a pre-wound ball. I love knitting with this wool because it gives very good stitch definition and it is very much alive.


Looks good, feels good -- great yarn
