Nice soft yarn-beautiful hand, shows great stitch definition and available in many lovely colors. And like most of the Valley yarn line, very economically priced. I have only one gripe about this yarn. I found out by accident that it shrinks and will keep shrinking. And it felts too. I had a pair of socks go from a 11.5" long foot to a 7" long foot. I love this yarn for nice heavy cozy socks but will only use it AFTER I pre shrink the dickens out of it (boiling water-ice bath X5 shock) It's a great yarn but be careful washing the finished garment.

I submitted an earlier review of this yarn, but I am submitting another because my experience with the second ball was even worse than with the first. In the two balls, I encountered five knots, two broken plies, and one poorly spun section. In one hat, I now have 16 additional ends to weave in. Completely unacceptable.

        Nice hand. Knit up super fast. Showed great stitch definition in cables. Washed well, but she'd on carpet where I blocked the damp item.

                    Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

                    I've used this product in several separate projects, and have yet to be disappointed. It glides smoothly along your fingers as you knit, the stitches are a good gauge and weight, and the price is hard to beat. I've knit a herringbone scar, a versatile slouch/sailor cap, and a baby blanket out of it. My friends and family have marveled at how soft it is! I highly recommend this yarn for novices on a budget who are curious about wool yarn, and to knitters in general It's very quickly become my go-to for a menagerie of projects. :)
                    I just wish that they would carry some more modern colours - neon brights, more neutrals, and some darker greens and mustard yellows.

                        This is an enjoyable yarn to knit. I used it for a baby sweater with beautiful results. I like the texture and softness. I had started a baby blanket with another yarn and decided to restart with this yarn. So far, the results are lovely.
