This is a wonderful yarn to knit. It is soft and comfortable. Watching the pattern emerge was a lot of fun. I bought it at a Webs sale and the skeins were 250 gms. each which I really like. I should have alternated skeins while knitting, but didn't.

    Comments about 14.99 Northfield Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

    This is a beautiful yarn, well worth the price. I puchased it in the Electric Avenue color which looked like a royal blue on line but was actually a beautiful turquoise blue which I liked well enough to keep. I am very glad I did because it is gorgeous. The color shading is more subtle than some of the other colors, just enough to add zing to the knitted fabric. The light reflects beautifully off the color. There were no ends inside the skeins and the yarn has excellent stitch definition . The mixture of fibers is perfect for the shawl I knitted - very soft and drapable.

      I knitted a vest for myself. It turned out well, and the Northfield yarn dyed by the Kangaroo dyer is a yarn I would buy again--maybe knit a lovely shawl for special nights out.

        One of the colors I ordered was not as shown or described. It just was so opposite....maybe it was a mistake, I don't know. The kangaroo dyer is so talented and her yarns are normally so beautiful with color.

              Comments about 14.99 Northfield Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

              I knitted a sweater with this yarn and it was a pleasure to work with. I had no splitting. There were no joins in the yarn. Kangaroo dyer does a great job. The only problem I had was color. I ordered lightening bug which was displayed as a lime green. When I received it, it was lemon yellow. The tag was attached and confirmed the color way. I over dyed it and it worked great for my project.
              Other than the color, this yarn is amazing!

                Love the pattern to make small infinity cowls for all the wonderful women in my life. Haven't done it yet but the texture and colors are great! I ordered several.

                  Absolutely love this yarn, I used 2 skeins Radiant Orchid, and knitted and gifted a scarf to a relative. Knits up and blocks beautifully. Recently ordered more, I would most certainly recommend this yarn.
