Comments about Berroco Pure Merino:

The yarn is pretty good- soft, easy to knit and shows the stitches off well- but the colors are a lot more bold than shown on the screen. be careful if trying to match colors or knit something striped.. i've bought so many skeins because it looked different after i received it in the mail- and my project was still in process! next time i'll stick to one color when buying this yarn online.

Color Not True to Online View

By Stashis Toobig

from Grants Pass, OR

Comments about Berroco Pure Merino:

The yarn is lovely and looks like it will be wonderful to work with, but the color is not even close to how it appears online. Color 8553 appears as a deep teal blue (and I've now looked at this on three different monitors); in actuality, it's much more green than blue...very disappointing, especially since I ordered four skeins.

    Comments about Berroco Pure Merino:

    This yarn is probably the best I've worked with in a long time. I made a few drawstring bags with it and plan to make a hat because it is so soft and squishy. It holds its shape well and is machine washable. It has a beautiful sheen and is a fine way to show off your stitching. :)

    Lovely to work with!

    Comments about Berroco Pure Merino:

    I loved working with this yarn. It's got a beautiful sheen and is very soft. Stitch definition is great and it shows cables off really well. I haven't had any trouble with it splitting. I used a Russian splice and it worked very well. I bought another batch to work up an afghan for myself.

    Be sure to swatch!

    Comments about Berroco Pure Merino:

    This yarn relaxes upon washing more than any I've ever worked with. That said, it's actually machine-washable, and it's super-soft and squishy. I don't worry about felting at all because I couldn't even get individual strands to spit splice.

    Good Stitch Definition

    By Anonymous

    Comments about Berroco Pure Merino:

    This yarn has been splitting pretty easily for me. But the stitch definition is great. I have not tested its washablity yet though.
