I just finished knitting a sweater with Northfield in Charcoal and I love the way it feels on your hands as you knit. I love the way it feels when I wear it! And it drapes beautifully. As I expected, this blend of alpaca, silk, and merino grew during wet blocking. I found that it split a little, especially after ripping out a few rows to correct mistakes, but not enough to be a major concern.
I bought this on sale but even for the regular price it feels like a much more expensive yarn.

I bought this yarn to make a hat. It was the yarn specified in the pattern. I got a good price because the color was on a closeout. The yarn splits way too easily - I have to be quite careful as I knit. In spite of that, the resulting fabric is pretty, soft, with a nice sheen and drape. Would I buy it again? No.

        I've made one sweater and many pairs of mittens with this yarn on #4 needles—small enough for detail, soft and not itchy—beautiful colors.

            This was for a special tam that I semi-designed for a gift. Yarm was soft easy to work with and very warm for head wear. When I hand washed it the red bled a lot but the color of the hat did not fade. It is a fabulous yarn at an affordable price. Love it

                  I'm making a sweater for myself, with cables. Even stockinette looks fancy with this yarn. I like the tubular strands. They don't split and they slide easily through my fingers. The color is a rich warm olive which I also love. There''s no downside as far as I can tell.

                    Thanks for offering a great yarn and an excellent price. I held it with a strand of Koigu KPPPM, and the result is a beautiful, soft, richly-colored cowl.
