    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.

    Knots every few yards!

        Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton:

        I have been a loyal and satisfied WEBs customer for nearly 30 years. This is my first negative experience.

        I bought six cones (different colors) of 8/2 cotton. Only one cone, the dark green, is defective. But the yarn quality is horrible, with knots every few yards!

              Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton:

              I love this yarn and use it frequently to weave towels. I have never had a bleeding issue, but I did with this color. I washed it on medium, light, with a color catcher in it, removed it immediately after spinning. If you want a red, I recommend 3800 as I have never had a problem with that. I heartily recommend this yarn, just not this color unless you're using it alone.

                        This 8/2 unmercerized cotton is softer than another common 8/2 that I've ordered from another store. Since I want to weave a baby blanket out of part of this, that's important. The kitchen towels I wove worked out great.
