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 yarn as a contrasting heel, toe, and cuff for a pair of socks I'm knitting. I love how soft it is. It's easy to work with. I can't speak to the long term wear yet, but I would definitely purchase this yarn again.

                I got this yarn with some trepidation because of all the reviews that said it was splitty and twisty. But I've had zero problems working with this yarn. Twisting is not a problem at all. It could get splitty if I were to frog the project and try to use it again, but for fresh yarn and a new sock, it's lovely. I was also worried about using the Addi Turbo needles on it, because I thought the project would be slippery, but they were made for each other. Love how soft and warm the socks are coming out. Used it for stranded colorwork - - perfect.

                Like other people I found the yarn a little splitty but it is very soft and very reasonably priced. Always a trade-off. All you have to do is pay attention or slow down. Am very pleased with finished product. Not washed yet so cannot comment on that aspect.
