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.

    nice yarn, but too many knots

      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.

        Comments about   " Valley Superwash:

        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!!!

        Comments about   " Valley Superwash:

        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

                I ordered this yarn as a sample for a afghan that I am making for a friend. We ended up using another product,only due to the price point. This yarn was slightly more expensive. She ended up gifting me the yarn we didn't use. I am thrilled as it is beautiful yarn.
