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:

    I love this cotton. Cotton is my favorite yarn and I have collected most of all the common brands. First of all Goshen qualifies as a luxury cotton. That is it is not made for only kitchen items or craft cotton items. Here you will have the means to produce lovely blouses, tops, and other warm weather apparel. The cotton is also durable. My washclothes maintained a new look through several washloads. The mixture is interesting. Modal is another form of cotton, one that is satin-like with nice drape and silk not only adds shine but makes the cotton very strong. My next project will be an old fashioned heirloom granny square blanket now that I've found a product I can trust to put in the hours on! The wonderful low price and range of colors cannot be beat! If you ever find this on a rare sale do not hesitate. Enjoy!

      Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

      I love Goshen. I've used it in the past for a striped pattern with other yarns, and this time I used it for a child's summer dress. It came out lovely!
      Great stitch definition, very little splitting, a nice sheen and fun colors.
      It's easy care and doesn't pill or fade when machine-washed cold dried flat.
      I bought more to make a tank top for myself.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Goshen:

          Bought to make a baby layette. I'm hoping a gentle wash cycle will work. Knits easily on Karbonz circulars. Did a swatch and found that 7s work. Label says 8 but since I tend to knit on the tight side, I'm guessing it knits to what the label says. I've had to frog some and it seemed to hold its shape and looks fine reknit.

                        I used this for a summer shawlette for my mom. It was easy to knit with and drapes beautifully. Perfect for any summer knitting, I would use for a top as well as the shawl.
