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.)

      I am really enjoying working with this yarn. I'm making the Fly Away blanket and Nanook sweater. Both pieces are working up really fast and this is a nice compromise for worsted weight, which I avoid here in Florida.

          I really like this yarn. It has good stitch definition, doesn't separate easily, and looks really beautiful when knitted. So many colors to choose from! I was looking for a lightweight, warm yarn to create an afghan and this one is perfect. Wish I had time to make a dozen afghans! Think I'll try the worsted next time. Same great superwash, but knits up more quickly.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK:

              This was a great yarn and knit up beautifully. Since it was a baby blanket I machine washed "gentle" and went ahead and dried "low" after finishing. I know laying flat to dry was recommended but I knew that would be tough for moms of infants. The finished product was super soft and fantastic. I didn't measure any changes in size so would knit a swatch and check gauge before and after before knitting a sweater out of it to wash and dry! Will buy this again!

                      Purchased yarn for two different projects, Baby Cocktails Gin & Tonic and a slipped stitch rib pullover in Rowans new DK weight book. The yarn looks and knits up to be comparable to other higher priced merino wools. Thrilled when I received it. Color and hand are excellent!

                        I have now used the Valley Superwash line a number of times for gifting and my own projects. My Portage cardigan turned out fabulously, I'm in the middle of a bulky weight huuuuge infinity cowl for my sister, and I'm about to start a Santa Fe cardigan in about 18 colors. I have nothing bad to say about this yarn!
