A wonderfully soft cotton to work with. While not recommended to machine wash, I found the colorfast excellent when washed on Hot and machine dried. Since I knit a lot of children's clothes, I like to "push" yarns to the limit for ease of care.

I knit with a loose gauge that draped absolutely beautifully.

Gauge used: 5.5 sts and 7.5 rws per 1" (Size US 7 Stockinette) This gauge produced as soft open knit. Perfect for warmer weather.

Could be used as a substituion for Sport Weight yarn (~135 meters/50 gram)

Price of buying on cones, even when not on sale, makes this a economical yarn, without sacrafice of luxury yarn.

It was suggested by a friend to buy this yarn. I made a summer cardigan, and loved every minute of it.
When I was done, I washed it to block it. In the wash the color was running, and it was shedding. I dried the cardigan flat, being careful not to stretch. Still, both the body and the sleeves grew at least 2". At this point I am not sure if I ever going to use this cardigan.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Noho:

      I ordered the Alabaster, expecting a warm, neutral off-white, and instead it was yellow! I decided to keep it, but it looked like the pale yellow, and not Alabaster! I thought at first that I was sent the wrong color! I like the yarn itself, and am knitting a summer cardigan with it.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Noho:

        I'm using this yarn to make an Amiga Sweater from Knitty. They yarn is very soft and has a nice hand. I don't often like to knit with cotton, but this is a pleasure to knit with. I'm even thinking of getting more of this yarn to make a 2nd sweater. I'm about 75% done with my sweater and have only had 1 knot in this cone!

          In my handwoven, natural fiber wearables, these yarns are always consistent. Good size, even color, nice fiber.

            I made a long sleeve 3 season sweater, using 2 strands held together. Great thick and thin texture. Cones, so no ball joins. I bought several lovely colors.

                use for weaving wearables.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery reasonably prompt, good condition.

                My only semi-negative comment is that web colors do not always match the actual yarn. I can allow for different monitors, but have seen some shades way off. Need to rely on my own samples and match to color codes.

                    Comments about Valley Yarns Noho:

                    Noho was the exact yarn I thought of when I wanted to make a blanket for a special baby-to-be. The parents won't know if the baby is a boy or girl until it's born, but I found out that they had painted the future babe's room gray with yellow trim. So I made an unusual choice of Shale Gray and Pale Yellow Noho for the blanket. I love it, and so does future Mom.

                          I use this yarn in throws and towels. It holds up quite well, the texture adds a nice hand to the fabric.

                          I wish you could stock more of the Noho. I have projects on hold waiting for a back order. Other than that, I have ordered from you for years and will continue to do so! Thanks.
