It turned out that I was right. The two yarns were very similar and they go well together when I knit them. Greenfield unravels a little when I have to rip out to fix a mistake, but the Webs result is very nice.

I too am making the Oriel cardigan. Every 88 yard skein has had at least 2 knots; this last skein had 4. It alternates between so lightly twisted that the plies lie next to each other to so tightly twisted that it kinks up on itself coming out of the ball. I've got 3/4 of the sweater knit. I'm going to forge on but I won't ever buy this yarn again. I'll see how it behaves as a sweater but I might frog the whole thing and make lots of dishcloths out of it.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Greenfield:

    I liked how light weight it was, but at times it could be difficult to work with because it untwisted while working. turned into a beautiful cowl though. I would still recommend this because of the coloring and finish.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Greenfield:

      I used this product for a Vera Sanon top. Other than the rather excessive knotted splices within each skein and a bit of unraveling, I enjoyed using this yarn and would use it again. It is very soft and dyed in pretty colors.

      Good cotton yarn for the price

      Best Uses

        Comments about Valley Yarns Greenfield:

        I used this yarn in Mauve for stripes in a top that I knit with with Venus S. Charles (which is a very shiny multicolor yarn) and it looks great. Mostly because the weight and the color match were perfect.
        The texture is also nice and soft for a non-mercerized cotton. It doesn't have that dull cotton look.
        It splits a little but it's manageable.
        Compared with other 100% cotton yarns of the same weight, it's a great buy.

          I made a summer shell with this yarn. The places where it was so splitty (many places) show up in the finished project, even after blocking. I am a cotton knitter, but won't use Greenfield again.

            Comments about Valley Yarns Greenfield:

            I used this yarn to make a summer sleeveless shell with a lace accent. It was so splitty, even the stockinette sections looked uneven. Blocking helped, but it unravelled unmercifully. I am a cotton knitter and there are much better choices in this fiber.

                Comments about Valley Yarns Greenfield:

                I use the product to make amigurumi. I use a LOT of yarn, and unmercerized cotton in general is hard on my hands after a while, but Greenfield has a smooth quality to it, without being super-shiny, that makes it much easier to use. It can periodically unwind, leading to splitting the yarn with my crochet hook, but it also repairs very quickly if I catch my mistake, unlike with other yarns I've used. It's easily the most comfortable 100% unmercierized cotton yarn I've ever used, and the price is definitely right for this quality ^_^

                I find this yarn somewhat splitty but not too much. I knit Continental, so maybe that makes a difference. I've made three sweaters and find it has a nice sheen, not too heavy and really shows off cables and lace patterns nicely. Great yarn!

                This yarn is very splitty and snags easily. I've learned my lesson with un-mercerized cotton.
