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.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

    I wanted to get a good copper colour but was disappointed as this is darker and less bright than expected, however the yarn is good overall and the finished product is good. This is a good day to day yarn to knit sweaters but is nothing special - just good, consistent quality for daily wear.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Delivery to Azerbaijan good as expected and experienced in the past.Thank you and well done - again! Loved that it arrived in plastic packaging as it is cheaper to collect than boxed versions.

          I has asked via échat if this was the best yarn choice for the item I wanted to knit. I gave all the pattern requirements to the chat person. The above yarn is the one that was suggested. However as I started knitting with the yarn, I am not sure it will work. The yarn seems too heavy for the pattern. It is lovely yarn just may not work for what I want

                Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

                I bought this yarn to crochet a scarflet for my mom. I wanted just the right shade of pink for her, and I found it in the Mauve colorway. When the yarn arrived, I was pleasantly surprised by the feel of it -- incredibly soft and non-itchy even against my own sensitive skin. The machine-washability is a nice bonus. This is going on my list of yarns to consider for future projects, including larger ones like sweaters!

                  I'm knitting a sweater for my son. He wanted a red sweater with blue & white stripes. The colors of this yarn are very vibrant and clear. The sweater is knitting up beautifully.
