    I'm allergic to wool, so this is a great substitute. I really love the way the yarn drapes and has a weight to it. Plus I wanted to knit something that wouldn't be too warm in the Fall or Spring and this material is perfect for it. You'll see from the picture that I'm still working ont this sweater but that it displays great deifinition.

    I was hoping the 40% microfiber would give it a bit more give and plushness or a brushed cotton feel. But it just feels like cotton yarn. It's not a bad yarn, but there are other cottons that are less splitty.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

      I used this for a shell. The fabric is light for a cotton so it doesn't weigh itself down. It looks great knitted up, but it splits easily and I had to be really careful. There were several occasions I had to fix split stitches and that took some time. Overall, though, I love the feeling and the weight of the yarn, and I would definitely use it again!

          Worked great for the fingerless gloves I picked it out for. No complaints. Has handled a couple mistakes and drops fine. Happy with the yarn. Like the look and feel.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Yarn arrived in great shape. Took about a week to get here

          Lots of lovely colours, nice finished weight. Versatile yarn. Very easy to work with. Splits a bit when moving quickly, and mistakes do show. I used it for a little girl's dress, but I'd definitely buy it again for a sweater or dress for myself.

            Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

            I am making a light summer sweater for travelling. It does unravel quite easily so I had to watch not to split the yarn. The sweater looks a little more "rustic" than I had hoped, but I still like it

            I used this yarn to crochet a vest. It was easy to work with and the vest turned out great. I machine-washed it and the yarn held up very well. My vest is soft and drapes very well. I will definitely use this yarn again for future projects.

              Made a ruched sweater for my granddaughter. Because the yarn is soft, the gathers fall very nicely.
