I’d been hearing some murmurings about a new kid in town around the office, but when I saw our newest Bright and vibrant, Superwash Bulky is a superhero!Valley Superwash star, I saw the rumors were true. Valley Superwash Bulky is a delightful soft, squishy yarn at a big enough gauge that projects will knit up in record time. On US size 10 or 10.5 needles, it gets 3.5 stitches to the inch, and that means a cowl in a weekend, a sweater in a few weeks, and a soft, washable baby blanket finished by the end of your summer vacation at the beach.fast and adorable superwash bulky cremini baby sweater The springy feel of this yarn makes it eminently touchable, and the sweaters you make will be warm and light without the bulk of an alpaca or mohair fiber. Give it a try for that colorblock hat you’ve been wanting to make for your favorite sports team, or a quick sweater for your son or daughter that can be washed and worn for years. This adorable Cremini Baby Sweater is a Valley Pattern that we introduced in our latest catalog, and you can probably make it in a weekend. Happy knitting!

    I read that it pills and “fuzzes” upon washing and wearing. Has anyone else had this problem? What’ll is it? I made a sweater in 1 ply and it stretched to twice its size after just a few wearings. Would love to use this yarn if it doesn’t have those problems.

    I made a really nice jacket with this yarn and just washed it. I am afraid that I had a really bad problem with pilling and fuzzing. The jacket is practically ruined. I love the feel of the yarn and it is very warm and but feels surprisingly light. But I hated the pilling and fuzzing after washing (on the gentle cycle by the way). I don’t think I will use this yarn again, which is a real shame.
