Valley Yarns Southwick

This Italian import combines the softness of pima cotton with the beauty and drape of bamboo fiber. Valley Yarns Southwick is a joy to knit, and the feel improves even more once finished. This yarn is perfect for spring and summer knitting! It's great for basics as well as more intricate stitches.   Made in Italy.

Bought 15 additional skeins of this yarn

I made the Fiddlehead Set pattern and had so many complements and requests that I ordered 15 additional skeins to make hats and mitts for Christmas gifts.

I am a veteran knitter. I know my yarns. This is not worsted weight. Sorry. I also ordered a DK weight at the same time which was actually THICKER than this "worsted weight" yarn. When I returned with my comment I got the response that "it does knit up with a stitch gauge of 5 stitches per inch on US 5-7 needle, which is the typical gauge for a worsted weight yarn." Sure, maybe if your tension is that of a toddler....

      Comments about Valley Yarns Southwick:

      The yarn is very soft and has good stitch definition. Yes it is splitty, but most cotton and cotton blends I have used are, so no surprise there.
      I cannot comment on durability as I am still working on the project. Strongly suggest swatching and blocking for anything where the finished size is a consideration.

          I knitted 2 size 12 mos. dresses for twin girls. Love the weight of the garments. Edges finished so beautifully that I didn't need to come back and knit a separate edge.

          The bamboo content of this yarn makes it lovey and drapey; it feels so good. After making afghans for lots of other people, this is something I made for myself and I'm glad I did. I bought the kit, a very good move. It works up quickly and easily. I'm considering buying some more colors for gifting.

            I bought this to make a cowl for myself and it's very nice to wear. I also like the stitch definition you get with this yarn.

            Comments about Valley Yarns Southwick:

            This is a lovely yarn which has a luxurious feel without the price. The colour choices are chic and up to trend. It does unravel when reworked and I had to be careful not to work at stitch in the middle of the strand (I was crocheting). I will definitely use this yarn again. The cons are so minor compared to the man pluses.
