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'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.

              I machine washed this in a front loader on gentle cycle with agitation turned off and it felted something awful. Do not machine wash - unless you really want felt.

              Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Northfield:

              I bought this on a whim because I a) needed new yarn for my shawl because I didn't like the original color I bought b) it was cheap c) it was on sale. I'm new to yarn so I figured that I should like this since it is mostly merino, but also had some alpaca and silk (Most wool irritates my sensitive skin). I love it!
              It's soft and knits up wonderfully. The downside is that it will randomly shed a little and it sometimes splits, but for the price it's spot on. I will definitely be buying more of this.

                So far I have only made a hat. But the way it looks in Crochet Stitches is ideal! I will use this yarn for anything I want to look good! It is a 'heavy' yarn, not lacy, though I wouldn't say it couldn't look lacy.
