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.

    This yarn is a joy to knit. It holds its shape after hand washing and gets even softer. It does take a while to air dry, though.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

      I used this yarn for the first time when I made the Bamboo Shell by Cheryl Andrews and it was fab-u! The drape was just right and there was enough give with the yarn so that my girls didn't look smashed into my tank. Since that first shell, I've used it for the Abalone by Hedgehog Fibres and although I had to use googobs of the yarn the flow of the knitted project could not have been achieved without Goshen. At this point, my obsession with Goshen continued and I knit the Cowl Shell by Myrna Batten and was again amazed at the many versatile uses of this yarn! As with the Abalone (which I made extra long AND placed a yarn over'd design down the back), the M.Batten Cowl Shell was the perfect compliment for the natural drape and of course, the color! Oh the color was wonderful! Vibrant and didn't fade with washing (Bamboo Shell has been washed soooo many times). I can definitely affirm that Goshen does not pill and it knits up so well -- I mean it really feels good in your fingers! Great yarn and best of all it fit my budget (what budget, right?). Goshen is the MOST reasonably priced yarn of quality and I would HIGHLY recommend everyone use it for their summer fashion and accessories!

                  Valley Goshen was purchased for baby gifts. My husband's boss was expecting a new girl & the couple already had a three-year-old. I purchased the crochet pattern Girls Dress Tiered Sundress on Ravelry because we live in the southwest. The pattern suggested a chain beginning that is then worked in the back stitch. This was where I ran into splittiness. I changed to foundation crochet and had no problems. The white background with bright rounds is very appealing.

                  THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'VE USED A COTTON YARN AND ALTHOUGH IT CAN SNAG OR SEPATATE IF I'M CARELESS, IT'S EASY TO WORK WITH. THE COLOR IS LOVELY AND THE YARN HAS A SILKY FEEL. IT KNITS UP FAST TOO. I WOULD CERTAINLY USE IT FOR A FUTURE SWEATER.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  DELIVERY WAS SUPER FAST AND WHEN I DISCOVERED THAT I NEEDED ONE MORE SKEIN, IT WAS SENT PROMPTLY. I REALLY APPRECIATE BEING ABLE TO ORDER OVER THE INTERNET!
