Love, Love, LOVE this yarn. The price is right and the sheen is amazing! I've used this yarn for literally hundreds of projects. The only thing is that the website says the sett is 12-18, but it's really 20 if you're looking for a tight weave. So keep that in mind when planning your warp length!I always use a 10 dent reed with this yarn.

I am a professional clothing weaver, and I use a lot of cotton in my weaving. With the decline of mill ends in the US I have turned to this product as a reliable source for 5/2 cotton in certain colors - particularly black.
Although I love the feel and the sheen of this yarn, at times I have gotten cones that are riddled with snags, knots, and uneven twists. It doesn't happen too often, but when it does it is a real pain - especially if I am measuring out warp! For the price I could wish there was a bit more quality control...... then I would rate this yarn at four or maybe five stars.

          I use Valley Yarn pearl cotton for table runners, place mats, and dish towels. I weave on both a 4-heddle Baby Wolf loom and a ridgid heddle loom. This yarn has such a nice sheen.

            Weaves into a nice baby blanket, soft and not too heavy. Same for hand towels. I used a multitude of weaving patterns from plain weave to bulkier waffle weave and it works well with everything. I set it at 24 epi.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Cotton 5/2:

              The cone was difficult to unwind evenly, it would snag and flip over while trying to wind a warp. There were a few weak spots as well where the yarn would just break. I don't think I'll buy this yarn again.

                  This yarn is perfect for the beautiful intricate lace patterns in my Japanese pattern books. The tops made with this drape gracefully. I love the sheen and the colors.

                    I like the quality, though I thought the spin would be a bit tighter. It does not affect the quality of my project, a crocheted tunic, which I have not yet finished. It does not snarl or tangle easily, which is great because I had to unravel and redo rows several times so far.

                        I used my cotton for dish towels. No fraying and never had a broken thread. Also color fast, no running in the wash. Will be back soon for more stash! Thank you for a good product.
