Valley Yarns Goshen

We fell in love with this yarn at first sight. Valley Yarns Goshen is very soft! The Modal® and silk not only add a slight sheen, but also durablity. Garments will not pill and will stand the test of time. Made in Peru.

I just finished a sweater for my daughter in law and a dress for my youngest granddaughter. What a delightful yarn to work with. Feels great in the hand and knits up beautifully. Love the light sheen the yarn gives to fabrics. Have now used 15+ balls of this yarn and have found not 1 knot in the skein. This is becoming my new favorite yarn. Hope it's not discontinued and that they add more colors.

Found it difficult to use. Slippery and quite slick, very difficult to maintain even tension on straight single points at recommended size. Size 8 was sloppy and irregular; size 7 achieved 4.5 sts to inch, but still rather sloppy. My only resolution was to knit circularly using SIZE 6 wood tip needle to help control tension and achieve a more balanced fabric swatch with a gauge of about 5 sts and 6 rows to the inch. Highly recommend using smaller needles than size 8 recommended to achieve a better hand in the fabric.

        I bought this yarn to make an infinity scarf with. It is exactly the drape and color I hoped for. I am using the color, Fawn. It is soft, easy to work with and has a beautiful soft drape. I would love to make a sweater from this yarn. I do wish there were more colors to choose from.

              To granma who posted most recently: knit a swatch and toss it in your washer, cool to warm then tumble dry warm. You may be pleasantly surprised! I machine wash and tumble dry this yarn all the time, with good results, no shrinkage and no pilling. Best if turned inside out and washed in a lingerie bag.

              Have knit many sweaters for babies and toddlers of this yarn, substituting it for suggested yarns in many patterns, incl Sublime, Louisa Harding, Bliss;
              Often use at gauge of 5 sts per inch, like the feel and stability of the fabric better; also allows wider choice of patterns.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

              This is an excellent cotton yarn. Because it's Peruvian, it's super soft and silky and has a lovely sheen, and the addition of silk and modal makes it even more so. I'm making a sweater with this and keep pausing to stroke the fabric.
              Of course, because it's so silky, the ends like to pop out, so make sure you give yourself plenty of extra length on the tails. Also, an inescapable quality of cotton is that it doesn't have the same give that wool does, so my wrists get tired out more quickly than when working with wool.
              In conclusion: if you need to work with cotton, this is a great choice.

                    I'm using this product to knit a cardigan for a granddaughter who is twelve. The yarn knits,very evenly and the lace pattern in the bodice of the cardigan is very easy to see and thus to knit with this yarn. I do wish it were machine washable and dry able but am glad it can be hand washed at least.

                        My granddaughter needed a "Meg" shawl for a school play of "Little Women." So, durability from the cotton seemed wise, and the soft drapability of the modal was just right. I was very happy with the finished knit.

                        Delivery was prompt and there were no problems with my order.
