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.

            Cons

            • Many Many Breaks
            • Twists Up

            Best Uses

              Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

              This yarn is of poor quality because of the multiple breaks that are just knotted together throughout the skein. This occurs not just in the whole strand, but also in individual plies. When I buy 50 gms of yarn, I expect it to be spun as one long piece, not multiple pieces, knotted together. It makes knitting difficult and the finished piece of lesser quality. Of 10 skeins, there were multiple breaks in every skein. I will not buy Valley yarns again.
