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.

Unfortunate knots

By

Comments about VALLEY YARNS 8/2 Cotton:

I am using white 8'2 cotton as a warp for dish towels. In winding a nine-yard warp on my mill I found too many small knots on at least one of the two cones from which I was winding. I may need to cut them out and make repairs as I weave. That would be extremely annoying! Generally I like the 8'2 cotton fro WEBS and do not find this problem.

Comments about VALLEY YARNS 8/2 Cotton:

I weave with it. I love it.
But please, Steve, develop some deeper colors in variegated 8/2, like we used to be able to get from Astro Dye Works (Wyoming, Colorado, Southwest Multi, Eggplant Multi, and so forth). I find the current colors in variegated 8/2 too pale, too blue, not rich like your deep toned solids. You've got the colors; can't they be put together in a variegated?

Comments about VALLEY YARNS 8/2 Cotton:

Can't wait to wind some warps with this for painted warps! I will likely be making kitchen towels and/or table runners, maybe some placemats. This is a nonmercerized cotton, so very soft and absorbent for towels. YUM!
