Valley Yarns Longmeadow

Valley Yarns Longmeadow is a cotton/microfiber blend that is the perfect yarn for your warm weather knitting. It is incredibly soft to the touch and has a lovely twist. The color palette is light and bright. You will love knitting with Valley Yarns Longmeadow!  Made in Peru.

Note: Longmeadow has been discontinued and is limited to inventory on hand. The label on this yarn recommends hand washing. However, we have successfully washed many swatches in the machine and feel confident calling this yarn machine washable.

Wanted an easy-care, soft cotton yarn to substitute for a yarn that the Child's sweater pattern called for (which I did not care for).
This product fit the bill! The microfiber content makes the yarn softer and less heavy than cotton. The white is beautiful - snow white. Plus, it is machine washable, which a busy mom can appreciate. Stitch definition was fantastic, and I've attached a pic of the finished Child's Beach Hoodie to illustrate same.
The only drawback is that the yarn has a tendency to split (as does most cottons), so knitting requires attention. However, this yarn is nowhere near as splitty as other cottons I've used (such as the one I was substituting)!
I would definitely use again.

I used this for a baby sweater for my granddaughter. Maybe I just didn't choose a good pattern, or good colors. I'm sure the sweater will be functional, but it just looks ordinary.

    I love this yarn and am disappointed it is being discontinued. Despite ball band instructions, it is machine washable on a cold, gentle cycle. Bring it back!

      This yarn is super soft. I am making a fall sweater and I couldn't be more pleased. The color is deeply saturated. This yarn is a great value for the price.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Longmeadow:

      I am sorry this product is discontinued. It is a useful product for those of us in the deep south. Cotton bags, and since the weather will probably be over 90 for 100 days each summer, this is a good alternative.

      On the negative side it does split. But by the time I had knitted the first skein, I became adept at noticing and correcting the errors.

          Very nice yarn - I am knitting my granddaughter a tunic top. Light weight, perfect for spring/summer wear. Knits up easily.

            I'm so sad to hear this yarn is being discontinued. I've made a summer cardigan out of it and am in the process of making another. It drapes nicely but holds its shape and is super quick to knit. I haven't had a single complaint with the yarn, the condition on arrival or anything else.
