Love, Love, LOVE this yarn. The price is right and the sheen is amazing! I've used this yarn for literally hundreds of projects. The only thing is that the website says the sett is 12-18, but it's really 20 if you're looking for a tight weave. So keep that in mind when planning your warp length!I always use a 10 dent reed with this yarn.

I am a professional clothing weaver, and I use a lot of cotton in my weaving. With the decline of mill ends in the US I have turned to this product as a reliable source for 5/2 cotton in certain colors - particularly black.
Although I love the feel and the sheen of this yarn, at times I have gotten cones that are riddled with snags, knots, and uneven twists. It doesn't happen too often, but when it does it is a real pain - especially if I am measuring out warp! For the price I could wish there was a bit more quality control...... then I would rate this yarn at four or maybe five stars.

    Comments about true Valley Cotton 5/2:

    i bought this yarn as recommended by a salespserson after sending in a different yarn to be matched as i didnt have any envelope infomatin on that yarn. i used both of these yarns in addition to many differet ones to crochet pacifier clips on bone rings. this yarn was too thin, coarse, didnt have the shean i was looking for and uneasy to crochet. in addition it is a huge roll which makes it unfit pfor traveling which i ussually enjoy to knit when in transit. in the end i found this yarn useful to embroider on top of other stockinette knitting projects.

    Comments about true Valley Cotton 5/2:

    Used Valley cotton 5/2 for a series of table mats as described in Anne Field's " Learn to Weave" book.
    I used color # 8176 for the warp and weft background and #3794 for weft pattern. Results are quite
    lovely.
