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.

          Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton:

          WEBS is usually very prompt on shipping. An exception would be this cone for towels. It said 3-4 weeks backorder but it was close to 8-10 and then I saw it was shipped to my home but at the time I was working in NH (I live in NC) so the post office forwarded it but I owed $7.92 in postage. I guess I should have called an asked about it as I had actually given up on it ever coming.

            This product is being used as warp for various projects. The neutral color gives a greater number of ways to incorporate vibrant color and texture

                          Was working on a mixed warp piece of yardage, needed weft. Was not the same color as what I had so I alternated throws with a buttery yellow.
