Valley Yarns Goshen

We fell in love with this yarn at first sight. Valley Yarns Goshen is very soft! The Modal® and silk not only add a slight sheen, but also durablity. Garments will not pill and will stand the test of time.  Made in Peru.

I just finished a sweater for my daughter in law and a dress for my youngest granddaughter. What a delightful yarn to work with. Feels great in the hand and knits up beautifully. Love the light sheen the yarn gives to fabrics. Have now used 15+ balls of this yarn and have found not 1 knot in the skein. This is becoming my new favorite yarn. Hope it's not discontinued and that they add more colors.

Found it difficult to use. Slippery and quite slick, very difficult to maintain even tension on straight single points at recommended size. Size 8 was sloppy and irregular; size 7 achieved 4.5 sts to inch, but still rather sloppy. My only resolution was to knit circularly using SIZE 6 wood tip needle to help control tension and achieve a more balanced fabric swatch with a gauge of about 5 sts and 6 rows to the inch. Highly recommend using smaller needles than size 8 recommended to achieve a better hand in the fabric.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

      I crocheted a hat for my husband and he loves it. The yarn is holding it's shape and hasn't stretched out of shape unlike another cotton I used the same pattern for. I will use this yarn for any future hats I make. It's not as shiny as say a pearl cotton, but it has enough sheen to it to keep it from looking "flat".

        I purchased this twice. After I ordered the the first time, I changed patterns and needed more. I ordered right away and even got the same dye lot! It is so luxurious feeling for the price. it is very soft to knit with and moves well. I will definitely buy again.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

          I make a lot of baby gifts and like knitting non traditional items (like knitted tea cups). This yarn is perfect - knits fast and has a wide range of colors. It's a bit heavy when finished, so probably not good for things that need structure (and aren't going to be filled with fiberfill) when finished - like hats.

            My first project was a tennis sweater I made for my daughter from a picture I loved of a $395 item. We custom colored hers in taupe with white and fuschia accents and it's wonderful! Now I'm making the Hen Plaid scarf in steel gray with accents of white, yellow, rose and leftover taupe. It's so easy to work with that this is a go-to product. Wish there were more colors.
            As always, service is awesome. I will have to wait to finish my scarf since some of the colors are back-ordered.

              I am using this yarn for a wrap shown in your pattern choices. It is knitting up beautifully!. The sheen and the consistency of the yarn is great. Can't wait til I finish the wrap.

                      Pretty great yarn! Though it does tend to unravel and then gets split by the crochet hook. But otherwise is very soft seems to be strong, and has a slight sheen to it.

                        Not only is this simply the best yarn I've used in years but it is the most responsibly priced. When I recommend it to friends they simply don't believe me and have to look it up right away! I can't tell you how many colors I have purchased and I have never been disappointed. I actually broke my rule for 2014 and bought yarn to add to my stash. It was worth it!!!
