This yarn is so beautiful and soft to the touch. Prior to the first project that I made with the Berroco Vintage, (a blanket for my Mom for Christmas using Tide Pool and Breezeway) I had been using yarn from a craft store, but I don't think I'll ever go back. It knits up quickly, and the stitch definition is beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft it was when it knitted up, and while I used it to make a blanket, as previously noted, I will also be using the remaining yarn to make a pair of mittens for myself. It was also discountable, so this beautiful yarn was comparable in cost to the yarn I was buying in craft stores.

The one thing I would say negatively about the yarn was that in some cases there was less yardage in the Tide Pool color than the Breezeway, but not enough of a difference that it affected the project that I was making.

I usually don't purchase synthetic fibers or synthetic blends. BUT i had a commissioned request for a specific color and easy care. So i purchased this yarn. It's fine, it's soft and good yardage, and doesn't seem like a substandard fiber. However, it was the same price, if not more expensive than some of the 100% wool yarns on here... like cascade. I was ok with a close color because i know that depending on the monitor a color can look slightly different, but unfortunately the color was way off from the picture and considerably darker and more blue. Even though the color is beautiful in it's own right, it was far from the picture. I wasn't able to use it for the project, and ended up buying another yarn. So, be wary of the pictures and expect darker, and it's a nice wool blend. So if you want a quality blend, this is a good yarn.... but even so, in my opinion it's expensive for what it is.

    Comments about Berroco Vintage:

    One of the things I love about this yarn is that it has the "wool texture" while feeling very soft. The other thing about it is, it makes your piece show a lot of detail and definition. A cheap brand just makes it look cheap and uninteresting.

      I bought this yarn in green to make a hoodie for my young adult son. It is easy to work with and is machine washable, which was a must for this son. It is not a luxurious yarn, but it is a good yarn for sturdy items. It is not soft, really, but it is not itchy either.

      Comments about Berroco Vintage:

      This has 40% wool which makes it feel wooly even thought it is machine washable and dryable. Nicer than Plymouth Encore but is a weight comparable to Cascade 220. I'm using it mostly for kids' accessories but it would be good for anything calling for wosted weight except socks. (They'd be too hot.)

        This is a wonderful wool blend with easy care. So very soft. I made a chemo cap of it and plan to make a dress for my granddaughter too. The colors are gorgeous-- love the heathery tonals. The solids are beautiful too. This is another Berocco winner.

                  I sent it back, but it almost killed me to do so. It was soft and beautiful but it was the wrong color. My error. I needed red and ruby was more of a berry or burgundy color.

                    Comments about Berroco Vintage:

                    Overall, I like this yarn. It was the first time using a synthetic, so I didn't realize when I purchased it that it would have more stretch to it than the other cotton/wool-blend yarn I am using it with to make a cowl - my error. There's one section where both yarns are interwoven that could be better because of that fact, but the areas that only use the Berroco yarn are quite beautiful. And realistically, I'm the only person who will notice once the cowl is completed and I start wearing it. I would use this yarn again but next time may stick to one yarn at a time. Also, the color crimson is rich, deep and beautiful. It's also super soft.
