Love, Love, LOVE this yarn. The price is right and the sheen is amazing! I've used this yarn for literally hundreds of projects. The only thing is that the website says the sett is 12-18, but it's really 20 if you're looking for a tight weave. So keep that in mind when planning your warp length!I always use a 10 dent reed with this yarn.

I am a professional clothing weaver, and I use a lot of cotton in my weaving. With the decline of mill ends in the US I have turned to this product as a reliable source for 5/2 cotton in certain colors - particularly black.
Although I love the feel and the sheen of this yarn, at times I have gotten cones that are riddled with snags, knots, and uneven twists. It doesn't happen too often, but when it does it is a real pain - especially if I am measuring out warp! For the price I could wish there was a bit more quality control...... then I would rate this yarn at four or maybe five stars.

        Purchased this as warp for a series of scarf classes I'm teaching this summer. It's a good weight and weaves up fast.

          I purchased this yarn to make towels. I did not look close and found it was mercerized. But I am glad I missed this because I thought all mercerized cottons were stiff and not absorbent. Boy was I wrong. This yarn is very soft and will work very well for kitchen towels. I am so very glad I purchased 10 pounds. I love the very BRIGHT colors.

            I use this yarn to weave hand towels and face cloths. It works great for both warp and weft on my rigid heddle loom. I like that it comes in lots of colors, but wish it came in variegated colors also. I will definitely be buying more of this for my weaving projects.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Cotton 5/2:

                I was commissioned to make a washable rug and the buyer purchased a color card as she was particular about matching her decor. The yarn did NOT match the color card and was returned (I hope she did not have to pay the extra shipping). The replacement color had several knots in the cone and after weaving there was a warp thread standing out like a sore thumb. By using a magnifying glass I found there was no threading error nor was that thread under different tension. That thread and the one next to it were of a completly different size (or perhaps the twist was off). This was easy to see when the piece was removed from the loom and all the warp threads hung free from the loom waste. Valley Yarns is getting a bad reputation for quality but I guess you get what you pay for.

                  the 5/2 Valley mercerized cotton is fabulous for summer socks. i made cookie a's pomatomus pattern with it several years ago, and they haven't even begun to wear out. washes up soft.

                        I use Valley Yarn pearl cotton for table runners, place mats, and dish towels. I weave on both a 4-heddle Baby Wolf loom and a ridgid heddle loom. This yarn has such a nice sheen.
