I used this yarn many times, and I will use it again. Used many different colors, and none disappointed. Made hats and scarfs as gifts. Made home decore items for myself. Cannot say enough good things about this yarn. Knits evenly and quickly, with beautiful stitch definition, soft and warm. My favorite inexpensive yarn!

Careful knitting is required because every stitch shows in such a bulky, solid-colored yarn. A few of the skeins had weak sections of yarn that I do not typically see in commercial yarn, and which required me to undo partial rows. The yarn does not have a soft feel, although washing helps a bit. The heather colors (I bought dark gray) seemed courser than the solid colors. I made a cardigan, which is rather heavy but nice, as well as a zip-front vest. Both were quick to complete because of the bulky weight.. Although I usually have to use smaller needles to achieve the correct gauge, I actually had to go up a size for this yarn.

                Comments about Berroco Vintage Chunky:

                As I am a beginner at knitting I can't say that I have enough experience to really help, but I wanted to share my thoughts anyway.
                I bought Borocco Vintage Chunky in Aubergine. I was super nervous about the colour because on the website (and my monitor) it looks a bit blue in tone; however, when it arrived in the mail it was definitely more purple and exactly as the name describes.
                This yarn is very soft and, from what I can tell, has a good drape.
                Although this yarn is listed as a chunky 5 I found it thinner than I had imagined. You can blame this on inexperience, but it's not very far off my other yarns. That being said, this yarn requires a size 10 US needle and, using one, I found it worked perfectly.
                The only issue I have had with this yarn is that it seems to split easily. However, I am using plastic needles and I am not certain if that might be contributing to the issue. This yarn is also slightly fuzzy.
                It's machine washable, but only in cold water and on gentle, something you should keep in mind!
                Overall I am REALLY satisfied with this yarn. I would certainly purchase it again!
                I added a picture below, this yarn photographs blueish, but it really is more purple in real life.

                Service and delivery comments:

                My delivery arrived early and in good condition! I asked in the comments section if I could receive 2 hanks from the same dye lot. Ask and you shall receive! It was kind of them to do so.

                  This wasn't as bulky as I expected, but ended up being perfect for my project, a cowl. It worked up quickly and had a nice feel as I was working it. The color was darker than I expected, but that may be an issue with my monitor. Color swatches would be nice!

                    I needed a big quantity of yarn to make a blanket, and this was good considering the price. The main problem is that while knitting it splits a lot which is annoying.
