                    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!

                      This produces a very nice effect when weaving. The spacing of the colors worked well in my project.

                        Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Variegated Cotton:

                        I like to use variegated yarns as warp for towels. These 8/2 cottons have lovely runs of pastels and can be woven with a range of solid shades as weft to produce sets of co-ordinated but different towels to be sold individually or together.

                        I use the darker variegated yarns as warp also, but tend to match them with solids in the warp as well as solids in the weft.

                        Turned summer and winter towels are very interesting with a variegated warp and solid weft. There are a lot of possibilities.

                          Love this yarn and the solids version of it. Perfect for projects requiring an absorbent yarn. Make sure you wash and dry the fabric you create before measuring gauge -- it shrinks significantly (as most un-mercerized cotton does).

                                I loved using this yarn. I have woven table runners and dishtowels with it. It's just beautiful. The colors blend well with no harsh intersections.

                                    I love this cotton for weaving towels and table runner. Unfortunately, there used to be a lot more choices in the variegated colors. I wish there was a variegated that incorporated a true red and that the colors were a lttle more vibrant. They seemed to have paled a bit over the years. But overall, the quality of the yarn is very good, and the colors do not bleed.
