Nice soft yarn-beautiful hand, shows great stitch definition and available in many lovely colors. And like most of the Valley yarn line, very economically priced. I have only one gripe about this yarn. I found out by accident that it shrinks and will keep shrinking. And it felts too. I had a pair of socks go from a 11.5" long foot to a 7" long foot. I love this yarn for nice heavy cozy socks but will only use it AFTER I pre shrink the dickens out of it (boiling water-ice bath X5 shock) It's a great yarn but be careful washing the finished garment.

I submitted an earlier review of this yarn, but I am submitting another because my experience with the second ball was even worse than with the first. In the two balls, I encountered five knots, two broken plies, and one poorly spun section. In one hat, I now have 16 additional ends to weave in. Completely unacceptable.

          Good price, rich colors, but the my last purchase was very knotty. Out of 5 balls there were multiple knots in 3 of them. I've used this yarn before and will continue to do so, hoping this was just an issue with one lot.

              I love this yarn! I've used it several times before for children's sweaters. It's just a delight to knit with and the finished piece is lovely and soft. I'm planning on using it again.

                  Comments about   " Valley Superwash:

                  I haven't even finished the sweater, and I've run into a lot of knots. One ball had two knots less than a yard apart. I cut one out and joined it to my working yarn, and barely got started again before realizing I needed to do it all over again. Very frustrating.
                  I can't speak yet to washability, stretching, etc but I hope they will be okay.
                  I will probably use it again because it is nice otherwise, very soft and economically priced. But it's not a go-to yarn. Would be perfect without the knots.

                    I wanted to love this yarn, it was very soft. But in my knitting I found several knots, I know this can happen, but in every skein... So after the baby sweater was completed, I began blocking...it stretched so much it was very difficult to shape. With a lot of extra work, I came out with a 'so so' sweater and hat.

                    I still love webs though!!!

                    First time using this yarn and i love it. SUPER SUPER SOFT,great stitch definition, easy to knit,color was spot on, and i got it on sale.
                    My only problem (and i read this in other reviews) was too many knots. My purchase included 8 skeins and at least 4 of them had some kind of knot in them (ply knot or a magic knot to join 2 yarns).

                    I will purchase this yarn again because it was THAT SOFT and great for big projects.

                    My project is not fully blocked in these pictures
