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.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

    Very impressed by the softness of this yarn -- nicely squishy yet not hairy or sheddy. The colors are vibrant. No dye on my fingers when knitting. Easy to knit and crochet: no splitting, and repeated frogging produced only minimal wear. I don't yet know how it washes. I'm making a scarf for myself and expect to hand-wash it only occasionally.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

          The skeins are already so small I've been disappointed to find additional ends within them. Otherwise, the yarn itself is high quality and lovely to work with.

          • Blankets

          Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

          I have knit three baby blankets in this yarn. I've used the steel, mulberry and plum colors. Each blanket is a pattern found on Ravelry. The Chalice baby blanket, the Pine Forest baby blanket and the #167 Simply Divine baby blanket. These are all lace blankets, with the last incorporating cables. The yarn is soft, easy to work with and comfortable to knit for hours on end. When I hand washed the completed blankets in Eucalan they released minimal dye. Occasionally I'll find small knots in the yarn. The yarn stretches quite a bit when wet blocked. If you're going to knit a sweater definitely knit a swatch or two before you invest hours in it. For blankets though, the stretching isn't a big deal.

                Comments about Valley Yarns Valley Superwash:

                I wanted to get a good copper colour but was disappointed as this is darker and less bright than expected, however the yarn is good overall and the finished product is good. This is a good day to day yarn to knit sweaters but is nothing special - just good, consistent quality for daily wear.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery to Azerbaijan good as expected and experienced in the past.Thank you and well done - again! Loved that it arrived in plastic packaging as it is cheaper to collect than boxed versions.
