Note: The label on this yarn recommends hand washing. However, we have successfully washed many swatches in the machine and feel confident calling this yarn machine washable.

Wanted an easy-care, soft cotton yarn to substitute for a yarn that the Child's sweater pattern called for (which I did not care for).
This product fit the bill! The microfiber content makes the yarn softer and less heavy than cotton. The white is beautiful - snow white. Plus, it is machine washable, which a busy mom can appreciate. Stitch definition was fantastic, and I've attached a pic of the finished Child's Beach Hoodie to illustrate same.
The only drawback is that the yarn has a tendency to split (as does most cottons), so knitting requires attention. However, this yarn is nowhere near as splitty as other cottons I've used (such as the one I was substituting)!
I would definitely use again.

It feels like 90% cotton

I was hoping the 40% microfiber would give it a bit more give and plushness or a brushed cotton feel. But it just feels like cotton yarn. It's not a bad yarn, but...Read complete review

I was hoping the 40% microfiber would give it a bit more give and plushness or a brushed cotton feel. But it just feels like cotton yarn. It's not a bad yarn, but there are other cottons that are less splitty.

Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

I am using the yarn to crochet a drop stitch jacket. I have had to do some frogging which causes the yarn to split. Otherwise it performs well and the finished project promises to be soft and comfortable to wear.

    Am knitting sweaters for my adult sons for Christmas. Love the feel, ease of correcting oops. 3 plies separate but easy to correct, each ply maintains twist. This yarn will undoubtedly become my main "to go to" warm weather items. It is so easy and relaxing to work with. THIS IS A WINNER

      Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

      Used this yarn in melon, which is a lovely color, to make a crocheted summer tank. Very soft cotton blend that worked up very quickly. The yarn split some, but that seems to be a common theme for cotton yarn. I washed the finished top in the washing machine and it came out perfectly. I would definitely use this yarn again.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

        I ordered 14 colors of this yarn to play with while crocheting each of the 144 motifs in the Eckman book mentioned above. When done, I'll probably join for an afghan. The yarn is the perfect weight for this project, with enough body to maintain the shapes but soft enough to feel good as it flows through my fingers. The colors are soft and lovely, and include a light and dark version in most shades for great blending in this project. I've not yet found a down-side to it.

                I bought a pink and a blue for baby hats. It was on sale. That should have been a clue. The description said yard was cotton with a micro-fiber. I made the wrong assumption that the micro-fiber was added to give the cotton some give. It did not. Both colors were unattractive. Not sure how else to describe them. They were not the bright colors on the web site.
