      Comments about Valley Yarns 10/2 Linen:

      I bought this yarn to knit the lace cap shawl from Victorian Lace Today. Two of the cones were very over twisted. I spent as much time taking twist out of the yarn as knitting. This was exceedingly annoying.

      The color among the cones varied significantly. I am bleaching my finished object in order to even out the color before dying.

      Knots are to be expected in such long cones, but there were knots 10 yards apart. Even though they were weaver's knots, it was disappointing in appearance.

      pigtails galore!

      Pros

      Cons

      • Lots of knots
      • Twists Up

      Best Uses

        Comments about Valley Yarns 10/2 Linen:

        I really really wanted to like this. I bought a quantity of 1/2 bleached for use as weft. It pigtailed horribly, even though I wound it off horizontally onto bobbins. In a single tube I would hit at least 15 knots-if I could get one full bobbin worth that was not knotted I was lucky. Most of the times I'd get 1/4-1/2 bobbin before I hit a knot. Frustrating!

        The warp I was using was 20" wide. I found this shrunk way more than other 10/2 I've used-my final product was 16" where it was 17.5" with a more relaxed twist (I'm blaming it on that, maybe it's something else). The end product came out OK (which saved this from getting a single star) but we fought the entire time. Sadly, I doubt I'll reorder, and will continue on my quest for a good 10/2 at a reasonable price.
