I used four colors of it for the multicolored stripes in a sweater for myself, plus another six or so colors in a hat. It was delightful to knit -- soft, non-splitty, non-twisty -- and it washed and dried beautifully in the machine. I washed a large swatch first before I started the sweater and was amazed that it came out of the dryer (I set it at medium but my dryer is HOT) looking exactly like it went into the washer. The same was true of the sweater when I ran it through the washer (warm wash, cool rinse, normal cycle) and dryer at the end of winter. I cannot say enough good things about this yarn.

This is the most disappointing yarn I've used in 50 years of knitting. The color was just what I wanted; knitting with the yarn was very pleasant. I completed a very complicated sweater and was excited to clean and wear it. At the very first -- very careful -- washing, the yarn pilled horribly; I have sweaters that are ten years old that aren't such a mess. I've worn the sweater one time, and it proceeded to shed all over my slacks and turtleneck. I was a mess within an hour. I won't ever wear the sweater again; I'm not sure it's is worth giving to Goodwill. Don't waste your time or money on this yarn. (I have given it one star because the system won't let me submit the review without a star...hmmmph.)

Very Satisfied with Valley Superwash

By Linsny

About Me Advanced beginner, Doting Grandma, Enthusiast

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Drapes well
  • Dyed Evenly
  • Economical
  • Good stitch definition
  • Machine Washable
  • Nice Texture
  • Soft

Cons

  • Knotted Yarn Breaks

Best Uses

  • Baby blankets

Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK:

This is a lovely, economical super wash merino yarn for baby blankets. I am knitting two Peek-A-Boo blankets, one large, one small. The color is very even; and makes the project practical for me as I'm on a budget but I covet really good yarn from natural fibers. Often have to forego projects because I just can't afford the recommended yarn. I used the Valley Yarn in lieu of a much more expensive brand, and am pleased with the result. The only con, for which I deducted one star, is that I found three breaks in the yarn, knotted together. I didn't think I would have to rewind the balls; I probably should have so I could have located the breaks before I discovered them mid-row.

          Not the yarn suggested for this project ( Seanair from Knitty) but once I got gauge it was perfect for an indoor version. Cables showed very well, and very soft texture.

                Superwash has a very even texture and color. Some common retailer yarns have more heft and sheen, but shed, I feel. So I like this yarn better for babies.
