    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.

    Found to be highly overrated

    Used this yarn twice for two different everyday sweaters. Got guage, but when knitted did not maintain size or shape. Weight of knitting stretches garment badly

      I loved working with this yarn. I made the "Boston Strong" hat, and it looks fantastic. Great stitch definition and a dream to work with -- soft and squishy!

      Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

      I am making the baby blanket pattern that recommends this yarn. It's my second knitting project. My knitting mentor commented on the softness of the wool, as well as its loft. I am getting used to the stretchiness of the yarn As a beginner, my challenges with this yarn are being able to knit evenly (due to stretching) and preventing splits (due to a somewhat loose twist). I know that by using care I will end up with a wonderfully soft gift!

        I ordered this yarn for a nice lady who wanted a pair of periwinkle socks. It was my 50th pair, so I've gone through a lot of different yarns in the past. This was the softest and nicest yarn I have ever used for socks!

            Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

            I liked the yarn well enough and I think I'd get it again. I didn't like the number of knots to join yarn ends in one skein. Honestly for the price, I'd like the skeins to be one continuous piece.

            Service and delivery comments:

            It took a long time (more than a week) to be delivered.

            This is one of my go-to yarns. It's great for making gifts and for children's items. Since it's machine washable there are no worries about accidentally felting or shrinking a beautiful handmade gift.

              Great value for a great product! Always looking for yarn colors to use for gifts ...especially baby gifts and this yarn works great! Much better than big box retailers choices and MUCH easier on the hands! Wonderful yarn for gifts where price is a consideration. Looks like a much more expensive yarn when completed and showcased in a beautiful gift! Good for knit or crochet projects. Washes like a dream, little to no pilling and wears well!

                abysmal quality

                  • Broken Plies
                  • Knots

                    Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

                    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.
