Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton

8/2 Cotton. As mill end yarns become less and less available, we have recognized the need to replace them with additional Permanent Lines yarns. Eight/Two is our new standard 8/2 unmercerized 100% cotton yarn. Made in Brazil and stocked in very large quantities. New colors will continue to be added.

Color Cards and Color Books for this yarn are available.

    I've been impressed with the 2/8 cotton spun in Canada over the "usual" 8/2 cotton available here in the U.S. This yarn, Valley's "Eight Two" seems about the same spin as 2/8 (no, 8/2 and 2/8 are not exactly the same though the weight is close), and I am enjoying weaving with it. It's a terrific weight for kitchen towels, comes in a large selection of colors, is strong for warp (*very* little breakage), and the texture is soft with a good drape (even for a towel this is important!). I'll use it again and again, I'm sure, once my stash begins to look depleted!

    I used this yarn to make 10 yds of handwoven fabric. There were numerous breaks in the threads that had been retied on the cone. Some came untied during the weaving process which was disappointing. I was making this as a gift for someone else, so the knots were very discouraging to find.

    The final fabric was nice though.

              Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton:

              This 8/2 unmercerized cotton is softer than another common 8/2 that I've ordered from another store. Since I want to weave a baby blanket out of part of this, that's important. The kitchen towels I wove worked out great.
