I'm allergic to wool, so this is a great substitute. I really love the way the yarn drapes and has a weight to it. Plus I wanted to knit something that wouldn't be too warm in the Fall or Spring and this material is perfect for it. You'll see from the picture that I'm still working ont this sweater but that it displays great deifinition.

It feels like 90% cotton

I was hoping the 40% microfiber would give it a bit more give and plushness or a brushed cotton feel. But it just feels like cotton yarn. It's not a bad yarn, but...Read complete review

I was hoping the 40% microfiber would give it a bit more give and plushness or a brushed cotton feel. But it just feels like cotton yarn. It's not a bad yarn, but there are other cottons that are less splitty.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

        I bought a pink and a blue for baby hats. It was on sale. That should have been a clue. The description said yard was cotton with a micro-fiber. I made the wrong assumption that the micro-fiber was added to give the cotton some give. It did not. Both colors were unattractive. Not sure how else to describe them. They were not the bright colors on the web site.

            Great value for a very nice cotton yarn. I used it for a custom order & my client was extremely happy with the feel & lightness the top.
            Overall, a durable cotton yarn that is easy to crochet with (could be a bit splitty for knitting-you'll want to use duller tips).
            The microfiber blend helps to keep larger projects nice & light weight. Color fast, machine washable, doesn't stretch...you could machine dry however that will ruff up the surface & fade the color. An adult size top air dries in 24 hours :-)

              This yarn has a wonderful soft hand feel and I love it. I was a surprised at the thinness - I wouldn't count this a dk, more sport weight. But I do love the yarn and will adjust my expectation. I ordered a few colors and the only one I was surprised over was the coral - it is definitely more a pink than a coral. Definitely worth buying this yarn,

                  The yarn doesn't feel soft on my fingers as I knit, but the knitted object feels soft to the touch. I like the shiny appearance of the knitted project.

                  I was disappointed that one skein had several knots in it. The other ones were fine. I used it for baby outfit and it is just so soft and its definition was great

                    This is easily one of the best cotton yarns I have knit with. It is soft, drapey and comfortable to knit (many cottons hurt my hands because there is no "give" - not the case at all with Longmeadow)

                      This is great yarn. I made a lacy pullover for my daughter. It knit easily and the finished sweater was soft & wearable. I plan to use this yarn again.
