This stuff feels a lot like cotton while knitting with it, but a little more elastic. The nice thing is that it's not heavy like cotton. It's as light as wool. You'd NEVER know that about half of the fiber content is synthetic. I can't speak to long-term wear yet, but my swatches came out of the washer great. I will be using this again.

I purchased Remix because the knitting pattern (for a child's jacket) called for it. I had never used Remix before. When I got the yarn, I was disappointed for several reasons: the yarn sheds and pills, it picks up loose fuzz, the yarn colors are much too mature for a child and not as seen in the pattern, the yarn feels rough and I am concerned it might not hold its shape. On the whole, I might knit this jacket using a different yarn that is softer and more appealing in color. For now I will complete the pattern to see what the finished jacket looks like with this yarn.

    Comments about Berroco Remix:

    I am using this yarn for a prayer shawl for my niece who is allergic to wool. It is very soft and has a rustic look to it. The only drawback is that there are quite a few pieces of vegetable matter (flax bits?) that I've been picking out but overall I don't find that enough of a problem to count against it. I would use this yarn again.

      I am currently crocheting a tapestry crochet hat with this yarn. Love the feel of this yarn...it's so soft! The texture and tweedy effect are attractive.

      I am working on a shawl that was designed for this yarn. It is working up so beautifully that I've ordered two more colors and some additional yarn for hats. If you're into basketweave patterns, this is the yarn for you! I can't wait to try a crochet project.

      • Would Not Buy Again

      Comments about Berroco Remix:

      I bought this as recommended for the Sawtelle jacket. Colors were not as shown in picture. It is not soft enough for kids things, can be machine washed but has to dry flat. Busy moms don't have time for this. I found the tweed coarse. Too expensive for what you get.

      Comments about Berroco Remix:

      Berroco yarn is best, I have found, when used in their own patterns/designs. Well, that makes sense! The yarn you use should match the design you are stitching, so the designers knew their stuff. Enough said.

      This is the same with other yarns, as well. I can't name names, but I have a Japanese one in mind for this caveat.

        Mixed review for Remix

        By Spinlily

        from Bremerton, WA

        About Me Artist

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Beautiful texture
        • Good Weight
        • Hides Mistakes

        Cons

        • Impossible To Correct

        Best Uses

        • Sweaters

        Comments about Berroco Remix:

        I bought this for a baby sweater, but the feel of the yarn is too sticky (from the silk, I imagine) for this purpose. I like the appearance of the yarn, and I think it would be great for a plain stockinette sweater. I wouldn't use it for anything with complex stitch patterns.

          Comments about Berroco Remix:

          I am in the process of making my second warm weather sweater with Remix. It has the perfect "jeans" look, sort of a rugged summer cotton look and yet very soft and easy to work with. I used a US 8 needle and found that this made things a little looser than I like, will go smaller needle on this sweater...maybe 6-7 Although it is listed as aran, it is not...more like a soft worsted.
