    Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

    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 Valley Yarns Northfield Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

      Making a simple shawl for my mom, and it's knitting up beautifully! Almost tempted to keep it... Will definitely use this yarn again! Only complaint is the color (sea glass) is a LOT darker than the photo on both my computers. Still a pretty color, but not the soft pastel I expected. The drawback of buying online, of course, and not an issue for the shawl. (Would have been 5 stars, but gave 4 for color. Sorry.)

        Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

        I am in the process of crocheting a shrug with this in the denim color. The dye is beautiful. The color variations are very subtle and yummy. I am certain this would be a pleasure to knit with. The strands do not separate and it works quickly without snagging. I am buying more as I love this so much!

        Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield Hand Dyed by the Kangaroo Dyer:

        This was a pleasure to work with. My first choice of colour was out of stock but I loved my second choice. I crocheted a cowel and I was so so happy working with it and with the outcome.
