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.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

              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!

                This yarn was very easy to knit, and the finished sweater is comfortable, looks good and feels very soft. I liked the first order of this yarn so much that I ordered enough more for two additional sweaters.

                  Great yarn. I don't like knitting with 100% cotton as it's just too heavy. This is so much better.
