Valley Yarns Huntington

Valley Yarns Huntington is a beautiful solid color sock yarn. It is great for colorwork and patterns with more complex stitch work. Valley Yarns Huntington is extremely soft, machine washable and would also make fantastic baby projects. You will probably need two skeins for most sock patterns.  Made in Peru.

I really like this yarn for socks. I have used it in mosaic knitting as well a plain old stripes. I would consider it a light fingering with a medium twist. Some knitters find fault with this, calling it "splitty," but I've not been over-bothered by this quality. It makes the fabric soft and supple. I have always believed a knitter and the yarn are partners in the process rather than the knitter commanding the yarn to submit to personal whim. A softer twist may take patience for some to learn but the relationship is well worth the effort!

I think this yarn is a great value, comes in smaller hanks so I don't have to have a lot left over if I am using more than one colorway in a project, washes and dries very well, softens up after washing, provides sturdy wear, and recovers nicely from frogging and re-knitting.

I tend to knit socks with yarn of this weight at a tighter gauge -- 9 or 10 st/in -- with 2 mm short circular needles. I recommend this yarn and keep it as a basic staple in my stash.

I would really love to see an even wider color palette, even some variegated or tonal yarns in this base.

Very disappointed so far. I couldn't do the basic cable pattern I'd purchased the yarn with intentions of knitting. Then, even though I hold my yarn very loosely, a ply of the yarn broke twice before I'd turned the first heel.

I'd already wound the yarn so can't return it but won't buy more until the reviews indicate these issues have been fixed. Too bad as I've liked the other Valley yarns I've used so far.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Huntington:

    I bought this to make a sweater for my pre-schooler. The color is great, and the yarn is very soft. And once I giot past the cast-on, it knots up nicely. But the yarn is very splitty, which made casting on a challenge.

      I use this primarily for cuffs, heels and toes to stretch hand-dyed yarns when making socks. It wears well, is pleasant to knit with, economical, available in a range of colors. I would also use it for solid color socks, and for shawls.

              I have made socks, hats and shawls with this yarn. Especially like all the color choices. Feels so soft it is hard to believe it has wool in it. Collecting lots of colors.

                  Comments about Valley Yarns Huntington:

                  I love this yarn, it was my first time buying merino for socks, but I am loving it. The socks are so soft and nice, still remains to be seen how merino will hold in wear, but with some artificial fiber in the mix I would hope they will last normal wear. So did not dare to give the 5 stars yet, no knowing if they tolerate the wear. If they do, it is certain 5 stars. :)
