Nice soft yarn-beautiful hand, shows great stitch definition and available in many lovely colors. And like most of the Valley yarn line, very economically priced. I have only one gripe about this yarn. I found out by accident that it shrinks and will keep shrinking. And it felts too. I had a pair of socks go from a 11.5" long foot to a 7" long foot. I love this yarn for nice heavy cozy socks but will only use it AFTER I pre shrink the dickens out of it (boiling water-ice bath X5 shock) It's a great yarn but be careful washing the finished garment.

I submitted an earlier review of this yarn, but I am submitting another because my experience with the second ball was even worse than with the first. In the two balls, I encountered five knots, two broken plies, and one poorly spun section. In one hat, I now have 16 additional ends to weave in. Completely unacceptable.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

        I bought this yarn to crochet a scarflet for my mom. I wanted just the right shade of pink for her, and I found it in the Mauve colorway. When the yarn arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the feel of it -- incredibly soft and non-itchy even against my own sensitive skin. The machine-washability is a nice bonus. This is going on my list of yarns to consider for future projects, including larger ones like sweaters!

          I'm knitting a sweater for my son. He wanted a red sweater with blue & white stripes. The colors of this yarn are very vibrant and clear. The sweater is knitting up beautifully.
