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.

Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Northfield:

This is a Beautiful yarn that provides great stitch definition. The yarn was recommended for and is perfect for the sweater I knit from the Cable Stitches Source book. The yarn does not appear to shed or ravel and I love the "soft hand" provided by the combination of merino wool, alpaca and silk. The only "con" is that is shows any and all mistakes. However, they are fairly easy to fix if you catch them soon enough.

            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
