I love to crochet with this yarn

I created an alternating shell pattern of double crochets that produces a blanket that is cool in the summer and like a thermal weave in the winter.

I've been using this yarn for weaving for about 12 years, notice over the last few years that the quality of the spinning is declining -- more rough places where bunches of fibers are joined, lots more knots. This creates problems, and wastage, when winding long warps, especially in sectional warping. If I need a small amount, so there's no volume discount and the yarn isn't on sale, I go to other suppliers. This is still a good value at sale prices, but I have to plan on wastage of product and some of my time.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Cotton 10/2:

    knit
    love the sheen
    Love the color palette
    It knits firmly but then steam it and it softens up. I have had no shrinkage with it. I can steam it back to size. I wash and dry it.

        It's a great cotton weaving yarn. I've warped 10 yards of it, and had no problems with breakage. it washes well, and the colors hold.

          I used this yarn as the warp to make tea towels and a table runner. This is excellent yarn to use as a warp in any weaving project as it helps the woven stitches to tighten up after washing.

                  This 10/2 cotton will be used at 60 epi to make upholstery and drapery material. Past projects using this have turned out very well.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The ordering process was difficult. I am ordering replacement cones for goods I have. Your cones are labeled with color number only, but your website has the name most prominent, and I had to search for the color number.

                    I use this for lightweight kitchen towels a *LOT* - it is relatively knot-free (well, there has to be a knot somewhere but they're not too frequent with this yarn), bleeds very little (I always use Color Catcher for the first wash), is easy to weave with both as warp and weft. Good colors, great choices!

                      This was used for weaving cloth. The yarn is not shiny the way mercerized is supposed to be, and when questioned, I was told by customer service that "they are having issues with the mercerizing process". Dont expect stellar or even good quality.
