      I made a beret with a leaf motif. The patterned stitches popped. The product is soft, wearable and blocked nicely. I want more. I gave this beret away as a gift, but I plan to buy more Northfield for my next project, a cabled pullover.

      I made mittens with this yarn and it works fine, I won't make hats or scarves or anything close to the skin, it is kind of rough without being coarse. It is hard to describe the feeling when you touch it. The colors are beautiful.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

          I made cowls for gifts this last Christmas. Several were the Pavo Knit Lace Cowl. I am relatively new to knitting but knew I wanted so fiber that was extremely soft and easy to care for. This yarn was beautiful. I ordered the Natural, Lavender, and Purple Haze. It worked up beautifully. I have learned that knitting can be a chore if you don't find your fiber pretty and touchable.

          I also want to say that WEBS ordering and shipping was terrific!

              Comments about Valley Yarns Northfield:

              This yarn is amazingly, unbelievably soft. I can't get over the texture! It stays wound very well - I haven't had any problems splitting stitches. It is absolutely gorgeous, and a delight to work with. I am definitely looking forward to making more projects with this.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I was delighted at how quickly I received my order! I live in a rural area, and do not have a local yarn store; this was the perfect solution to get the yarn I wanted at a good price. I will definitely order from WEBS again in the future.

              I knitted a girl's pullover in the round. This yarn made casting on and joining in the round a breeze - no tendency to twist on the needle. Also, the texture stitches really stood out very nicely. The yarn is cuddly , which is lovely for a young girl.

                    I used this for a hat and gloves worked in a leaf and bauble pattern and I was very pleased with the way the pattern displayed with this yarn. It is also soft enough for the band to sit directly on the forehead without itching.

                      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 love this stuff. Very tightly spun which means NO PILLING! I hate pilling. When I washed it I was hoping it wouldn't stretch out a lot like the Charlemont and it relaaaaaaxxxed just the right amount. I think the recommended needle size is too small for this yarn. I would recommend going up 1 size. Not too much bleeding in the soak. Washed nicely and really no bloom. The only con is I wish there was at least 200 yards in a skein. Although it spit splices nicely I like changing balls as little as possible. I will make a baby blanket out of this which means it's grandbaby worthy. Love it.
