Chose this in person to knit a sort-of log cabin blanket. It's knitting up beautifully, really squishy and soft. The tough part of buying yarn online is the color selection, so here goes: I have the 07 which I'd say is a medium shade of seafoam. It is more blue than green and very pretty. I also have 09, which is a strong teal or peacock color, also on the blue side. We were really nervous about how they'd go together in the blanket, but it's really great. Also have 27 Gray, and 20 Silver which are pretty much as shown.
In about 6 skeins knit so far, I've found one knot.

Beautiful, but disappointed

Beautiful yarn. However, I was disappointed to find it pill and fuzz horribly when machine drying on lowest setting, per the website instructions.

A nice bulky weight, but has problems

By Kateclysm

from Seattle, WA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Valley Superwash Bulky:

It's very frustrating to find knots in a ball of yarn, but even MORE so when there's one in 90% of the balls you have for a garment (out of 16, 14 were knotty). Otherwise the yarn is nice to knit with and holds up well in a garment.

Comments about Valley Superwash Bulky:

I love knittting with this yarn. It feels great to my fingers, and has a wide variety of colors to pick from. I knit a baby sweater and an afghan with it resentful and both turned out beautifully.

      I haven't started my project yet but I'm sure I'll like the results. The yarn is soft and will make a warm, comfy afghan for my favorite (and only) niece.

      Meh

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Valley Superwash Bulky:

      Feels lovely. But the light blue is lavender. Purchased for a little boy's sweater, but his mother nixed the color - too feminine. Having spent too much money lately returning yarns that aren't as pictured, I am keeping it in hopes I'll find a little girl to knit for. BUT: to add insult to injury, there were knots in all four skeins.

      Comments about Valley Superwash Bulky:

      I've used this yarn for several baby blankets. It knits up quickly and the finished blankets are soft and warm. My only complaint is with the knots. I'm on my fourth skein of the current blanket and each has had a knot. I forgot why I didn't use this yarn for the last blanket I made. Otherwise, this would be a favorite yarn.

        Comments about Valley Superwash Bulky:

        It's really too bad. I made a beautiful and intricate cabled vest with this yarn. I washed it according to the directions, blocked it and allowed it to dry flat. My finished product is virtually ruined by severe pilling. I an able to remove the pills with a sweater stone, but that fluffs the surface so it looks tired. Will try a sweater shaver on the remaining, but I am sorely disappointed.

        My favorite yarn

        By Nana Goodwich

        from Denver, CO

        Pros

        • Amazing Stitch Definition
        • Fast Projects
        • Luxurious To The Hand
        • No Pilling
        • Soft

        Best Uses

        • Blankets
        • Ponchos
        • Scarves
        • Sweaters

        Comments about Valley Superwash Bulky:

        Here I go again with another sweater with this amazing yarn. I just love the soft loft and lovely feel. Fun to work with. Love those bulky sweater projects for adults and children that fly off the needle. I recommend this for all knitters, even first projects as it does not pill, does not thread apart, and the fuzzy high grade wool tends to hide imperfections. Try it, you will be sold. Well worth the price.

        from Columbia, SC

        • Sturdy

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Hats
          • Warm Weather Accessories

          Comments about Valley Superwash Bulky:

          I knit a hat with this yarn a while ago and had yet to wash and dry it. I read reviews on WEBS and on Ravelry that mentioned pilling so I was a little worried how it would hold up in the wash. Wow! After washing inside out on a warm cycle in a top loader there was literally one pill that I noticed; I dried the hat on a medium setting. The yarn held color and softness. I was inclined to wash my hat because I now need to make something for someone else and I do not want them to experience issues with their hand knit. I'm so excited that I can depend on this yarn. I still cannot get over how soft and squishy the yarn is, both before and after washing and drying! I also enjoy using Malabrigo Mecha as a bulky superwash but this is now one of my go-to bulky yarns, especially if I need a solid color!

          Beautiful product minus the knots!

          from South Orange, NJ

          Comments about Valley Superwash Bulky:

          I really enjoy knitting with this yarn but have consistently found a knot or two in each ball which is really disappointing for such little yardage. It is definitely not ideal when working on my projects. Perhaps that's why it was on sale? What a bummer
