Berroco Remix

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 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.

Not as advertised, this yarn is not soft

Cons

  • Coarse
  • Not Suitable For Kids
  • Snags

  • 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.

    I haven't met a Berroco yarn I didn't like, and this one is no exception. It's great for creating items for people who are allergic to wool.

      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.

        I have used this yarn mostly for hats. It knits up quickly and I really like the feel of this yarn. Colors are great. Haven't found any things that I didn't like about this yarn.

                  Comments about Berroco Remix:

                  I made a sweater for myself from a Berroco pattern and love everything about it except it does pill a lot. Every time I want to wear the sweater I am either pulling off blobs, or using a sweater stone to try and remove some of them. The sweater is a cardigan with a band of a contrasting color at the bottom edge, and the bottom of the sleeves. So on mine the pills from the main color get onto the contrast color and results in a very messy looking fabric.

                  If it wasn't for the pills I would want to use this again. Maybe something other than a sweater would not pill so much, a hat or afghan. Disappointed that I can't recommend it for a sweater for someone who doesn't want wool.
