This week I’m highlighting some beautiful projects on Ravelry knit in Valley Yarns Deerfield. This baby alpaca and silk yarn in a DK weight works great for patterns with textural details such as lace and cables. It’s available in an elegant color palette of 17 colors plus natural. If you don’t see a color you love, Valley Yarns Deerfield is also available in 250-gram hanks, perfect for hand dyeing. Check out how nerdyknitting dyed Deerfield for her shawl below.

Valley Yarns Show and Tell: 471 Kohl Lace Pullover

Here is this week’s Valley Yarns Show and Tell!

This simple sweater is created with just four rectangles! 471 Kohl Lace Pullover is knit in Valley Yarns Deerfield and since it is constructed of rectangles, you don’t have to worry about shaping with the lace. The garment is both cool and flattering.

We tried on the 35” size.

We were all really impressed with how soft the Deerfield is when paired with the lace stitch. It was warm without being too heavy. Most of us thought that this sweater was quite flattering – from the shape to the length, but a few of us would adjust the sleeves so that they aren’t as bell-like.
