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.

I am using this for a shawl and it is lovely, soft and smooth, but those very qualities also make any irregularity very obvious. The women at my prayer shawl group loved it.

Comments about Valley Yarns Huntington:

I purchased this yarn for socks. I loved the price and the colors. Wished there were more colors! It's super soft in the skein but not so much while knitting it. No spring. That was disappointing. I didn't understand some of the comments on here and Ravelry about this being a splitty yarn ... I was knitting along just fine ... until I dropped a stitch. I wasn't able to ladder it back up because I could never catch all the plies. I wound up having to rip a few rows back. I guess for the money, this is a nice yarn. It's better than some of the other sock yarns in this price range. More colors please!!

    Comments about Valley Yarns Huntington:

    I use this especially for heels and toes to stretch out expensive, hand-dyed sock yarns. You can match almost any colorway. And it's a good, basic sock yarn for solid colored socks as well.

                I purchased the yarn to make socks for my husband. It takes pattern very well. It is not a worsted weight yarn. Much softer but will hold up with wear.

                      I ordered this to make a Norwegian colorwork sweater. (I made one last fall with a differnet yarn which felted when washed - long story - and which my daughter then inherited.) However, due to a bad experience with yarn in skeins which were so tangled that I had to cut the yarn in several places when winding it, I decided to return this entire yarn order. I have a big mental note not to purchase skeins, only balls of yarn to avoid the tangles.
