          Because this lovely wool must be hand-washed, it is best used for adult projects. I've used it for scarves and hats and it's worked up beautifully. The colors are just as they appear on your monitor - so no need to worry that you'll picture one product and get another. I've used this yarn in several colors over the past year and have been happy with the outcome each time.

          I have to say I'm disappointed with this yarn. Yeah, sure, it's got a great price point. It's also got vegetable matter in it. Sure, the color is great, but the hand is rather coarse, and it lacks the springiness of a GOOD wool yarn. That lack of springiness makes it harder to knit with. I'm glad this yarn is gone when this lot is gone, because I will definitely never buy more of it. It's a chore to work with, and the feel is comparable to something like Red Heart Super Savers. If I spend even this much on yarn, I expect more.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Greenwich:

              I used this held double on size US 11 needles for a cabled cardigan. Stitch definition is great. Gauge was very even. Color was uniform. Fairly soft, and softened drastically more after washing.

              On the down side, it broke easily, and felted if I even looked at it roughly. It was a little delicate for what I was doing with it.

              I have a couple balls left; I think they will make a terrific scarf. I look forward to making it.

                  I ordered 24 skeins for a blanket. It is working up beautifully. The stitches just pop and it won't be massively heavy when completed. The colors are not "flat" colors but rather have great depth.Certainly a yarn I will use again!

                          I was looking for a very economical yarn to use for a felting project, and this yarn worked great for that. My project didn't require any knitting with the yarn, so I can't speak to that.

                          I have mixed thoughts on this yarn. Overall, it seems like a good yarn for the price and I would consider buying it again for the right project, but it's not really anything special. It's not super soft, but would be okay for a hat or a scarf. It also doesn't have much stretch to it either.

                          My biggest beef is that the eggplant color I ordered looks nothing like what is pictured. It's much more of a navy blue with very little purple compared to the dusty, dark purple that is pictured. Cest la vie.

                              At $2.99 per skein this yarn is a great value. Since it is 2ply it won't pill as easily. I needed a good value since I had to purchase 85 skeins for my king size blanket project.
