This was my first time trying out this yarn and my second time weaving. It was recommended by my weaving teacher. The yarn really became soft and plump after washing my finished project - a table runner.

I can't speak to the qualities of the yarn, as I plan to try to exchange it. I ordered the color "Lizard", as it looks like a nice shade in the picture. Unfortunately, the actual yarn is much darker and "swampier", not a color I would use! I'm still excited to work with this yarn, it looks to be exactly what I need, I'm just concerned that the color in the photos is significantly off... (Yea, I know this is always a challenge in getting color-specific items on-line, but many of the other yarns I've gotten from WEBS were much more true to their picture.)

      Comments about true Valley Cotton 3/2:

      I was disappointed that the color wasn't as coppery as I hoped. Also it lacked the sheen I expected in mercerized perle cotton.

          Comments about true Valley Cotton 3/2:

          This is a quality smooth textured mercerized perle cotton that comes in several weights and many colors. The 3/2 weight I bought is perfect for weaving table mats, tea towels, scarves, shawls, tops and many other items. However, be aware that the colors as reproduced on the website are "off". If you're ordering this kind of cotton for the first time, and specific color matches are important, I strongly suggest getting a color chart first as they reproduce differently via computer screen than "in person".

              Lots of knots

              Comments about true Valley Cotton 3/2:

              This yarn had lots of knots tied in it. I only wound a 4-yard warp and came across four knots I had to work around, which wastes a good bit of yarn.

                    I am using this yarn for a hand-knit top with #4 needles and it's coming out great.
                    This cotton yarn has a nice sheen, it's soft, it doesn't split--what more can one ask for?
