I bought this yarn to use as the background yarn for scandinavian design hats. I have a dog fur/wool mix yarn that I spin and dye which I use for the pattern/color work in my hats and I was looking for a good, solid wool to use as the background and the inside of the cuff that would be nice against the head as my dog fur/wool yarn can be a bit rough. This was a perfect yarn for my purposes. The cuff is double knit so the amherst yarn is on the inside and my dog fur/wool mix is what shows on the outside.

I have been pleased with all other yarns I have purchased from WEBS, but this was a real disappointment. Perhaps other colors of Amherst don't pill like the charcoal, but I will not wear this sweater out in public. It started pilling almost immediately, and I am not rough on clothes.

Comments about VALLEY YARNS Amherst:

I used this for a baby hat. It has good stitch definition, is soft and doesn't split. I would give it 5 stars except for so many splices in the skein

Comments about VALLEY YARNS Amherst:

I needed a worsted wool in a grey and chose Valley Yarns. There were two greys so I wasn't certain which would work. I ordered both. One was backordered, but I knew that from the Valley Yarns page, and WEBS let me know that it would be coming soon. I received the in stock yarn very quickly. I wan't informed that the backordered yarn had been shipped until I went to cancel it and was told it had shipped. I sent it back, and was notified when they received it and my refund was applied very quickly. Very good customer service all in all. This is the second time I have ordered and will continue to do so when I want a good yarn at an excellent price.

Photo is deceptive: Color is very flat, no sheen to it.

Comments about VALLEY YARNS Amherst:

The yarn, while very easy to knit - no splitting or pilling - regretfully, has no tonal quality, as shown in the photograph. I am using it to knit the Vivacious Hi-Lo pullover pattern offered on the Webs website. This is my first attempt at a garment piece...
