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 is a very good cotton yarn for weaving. The price is low enough so that it would be a good yarn to use to pratice a new weave or learn a new technique.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I had to return 2 cones of this yarn to be replaced because the color in their catalog wasn't even close to the color of the actual yarn. So don't depend on the picture in the catalog, buy a sample card.

          I have been a loyal and satisfied WEBs customer for nearly 30 years. This is my first negative experience.

          I bought six cones (different colors) of 8/2 cotton. Only one cone, the dark green, is defective. But the yarn quality is horrible, with knots every few yards!

                I love this yarn and use it frequently to weave towels. I have never had a bleeding issue, but I did with this color. I washed it on medium, light, with a color catcher in it, removed it immediately after spinning. If you want a red, I recommend 3800 as I have never had a problem with that. I heartily recommend this yarn, just not this color unless you're using it alone.
