          I use your varigated colors and my customers like them a lot. I would like single color varigated
          colors in 8/2 also a Christmas combo similiar to crochet cottons

            I have woven several sets of towels and scarfs and they all turned out beautifully. Enough texture to be interesting and soft and absorbent in use. The variegation adds subtle stripes and patterns without having to do any special techniques.

                      Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Variegated Cotton:

                      This is my first time use with the 8/2 unmercerized cotton. I usually use heavier yarn (5/2 and 3/2), and I usually avoid using finer weight yarns, but this warp of four different colors (including a multicolor) was for a very long baby wrap for my daughter and first grandchild, so the 8/2 (or finer) was necessary. After days of weaving, I took the 206 inch baby wrap off the loom, threw it in the washer (warm) and dryer. It came out beautifully! It shrunk up to just the right length, and the colors stayed vibrant. The hand was very soft--absolutely perfect! Thanks!
