    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.

    Just enough of a silky shine

      Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

      Pattern and yarn seemed to match for guage, but I am using a ten needle instead of the recommended eight. Usually my guage is right on target.

        Use bamboo or wood needles

        By River

        from Western PA

        About Me Avid knitter

          Best Uses

            Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

            Love this yarn! As one reviewer pointed out its free of dreaded knots!
            Knits up smooth.
            To all who have pointed out it's slick & slippery
            tendencies on METAL needles...it is a given that as with ANY silk or silk blended yarns that wood/bamboo are used for consistent tension and correct stitch/gauge counts.
            So to any experiencing difficulty with it or those who like a first try with this lovely yarn - use wood/bamboo needles at recommended size.
            Please don't discontinue this yarn!

                OK this is a nice yarn and I only gave it a 4 because it is a Little "stiff". Meaning I wish there was a little more silk but I guess that would of brought the price higher. It hangs very nicely with really nice weight to it. I find that 100% cotton tends to sag and not hold the shape well with age. So will see over time how this holds up. Very well ppriced AND GOOD VALUE
