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.

                  I was disappointed that there was not a label for this on the inside of the cone that would indicate type (8/2), color, etc. Other cones I have purchase from other companies have this on the inside of the cones, so it is easy to identify later on, after it has been unwrapped.

                            If you are doing something soft, like baby blankets, this might be a good choice.
                            It is loosely spun compared to some of the other 8/2 unmercerized I have used. Maybe costs less, especially if you use the discount, but do know about the characteristics if you are fussy about yarn.
