Wanted an easy-care, soft cotton yarn to substitute for a yarn that the Child's sweater pattern called for (which I did not care for).
This product fit the bill! The microfiber content makes the yarn softer and less heavy than cotton. The white is beautiful - snow white. Plus, it is machine washable, which a busy mom can appreciate. Stitch definition was fantastic, and I've attached a pic of the finished Child's Beach Hoodie to illustrate same.
The only drawback is that the yarn has a tendency to split (as does most cottons), so knitting requires attention. However, this yarn is nowhere near as splitty as other cottons I've used (such as the one I was substituting)!
I would definitely use again.

I used this for a baby sweater for my granddaughter. Maybe I just didn't choose a good pattern, or good colors. I'm sure the sweater will be functional, but it just looks ordinary.

Not a colour for older people, would probably be better for a child - quite harsh

WEBS is wonderful. But I'm so disappointed Longmeadow by Valley Yarns has been discontinued! It's a favorite.

      I just looked up this yarn to recommend to a friend. I was horrified to see that it is discontinued! I just finished a blanket with it, and it is so very lovely. Guess I'll have to order more so I have it in my stash. So sorry to see it go!

        I love this yarn and am disappointed it is being discontinued. Despite ball band instructions, it is machine washable on a cold, gentle cycle. Bring it back!

          This yarn is super soft. I am making a fall sweater and I couldn't be more pleased. The color is deeply saturated. This yarn is a great value for the price.

          Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Longmeadow:

          I am sorry this product is discontinued. It is a useful product for those of us in the deep south. Cotton bags, and since the weather will probably be over 90 for 100 days each summer, this is a good alternative.

          On the negative side it does split. But by the time I had knitted the first skein, I became adept at noticing and correcting the errors.

              Very nice yarn - I am knitting my granddaughter a tunic top. Light weight, perfect for spring/summer wear. Knits up easily.

                I'm so sad to hear this yarn is being discontinued. I've made a summer cardigan out of it and am in the process of making another. It drapes nicely but holds its shape and is super quick to knit. I haven't had a single complaint with the yarn, the condition on arrival or anything else.
