I've been impressed with the 2/8 cotton spun in Canada over the "usual" 8/2 cotton available here in the U.S. This yarn, Valley's "Eight Two" seems about the same spin as 2/8 (no, 8/2 and 2/8 are not exactly the same though the weight is close), and I am enjoying weaving with it. It's a terrific weight for kitchen towels, comes in a large selection of colors, is strong for warp (*very* little breakage), and the texture is soft with a good drape (even for a towel this is important!). I'll use it again and again, I'm sure, once my stash begins to look depleted!

I used this yarn to make 10 yds of handwoven fabric. There were numerous breaks in the threads that had been retied on the cone. Some came untied during the weaving process which was disappointing. I was making this as a gift for someone else, so the knots were very discouraging to find.

The final fabric was nice though.

Makes wonderful dishtowels!

      Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton:

      I am a novice weaver, but I have made three different sets of dishtowels with this yarn and I love them. It is very absorbent and gets softer with each wash. Also, the colors do not seem to fade - my first set of towels are now almost two years old and they still look great even with daily use.

              I was very pleased with this yarn! It was a good price for a quality product. I used it to make a blanket (I put two pieces of yarn together to make it thicker) and it worked very well!

                8/2 Valley Cotton is my go to thread for weaving kitchen and hand towels. Set at 20 or 24 EPI in a variety of structures, the end result is a sturdy, soft and absorbent towel – my customers love them!

                      I've bought a lot of 8/2, but this was my first purchase of 8/2 from Webs. I am amazed at how much softer it is than other brands, yet still remains strong enough for warping. I'm a fan!

                        I have not woven with this yarn yet but the hand is lovely, the colors are vibrant and exactly as expected. I am looking forward to many, many projects.

                        Service and delivery comments:

                        Delivery was fast, and in good condition. Customer service was very helpful, and quickly answered my questions so that I could plan my order. I was also promptly notified of the color that was on backorder. Great service.
