I'm knitting a multicolor, temperature scarf for a friend who just got her meteorology degree and this yarn is perfect for it. I didn't want primary colors, and the variety this yarn offers works great. The colors are unique but cohesive for the project. Plus the yarn is a dream to work with, smooth and soft and doesn't unravel or snag.

I made the Bas-Relief Blanket using this yarn, which is what is called for in the pattern. It is full of pills and I have yarn dust bunnies all over the house. Very disappointed. I am embarrassed to tell people I made the blanket.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

      I am using this as a substitute yarn for a dearly beloved shawl/wrap pattern (this is my 5th project of it). What a delight! The alpaca gives it a soft, rather fuzzy sheen and contributes to a wonderful drape. The piece is knit on the diagonal, so the later is important.

      Any pattern which calls for a bulky weight yarn for a project which is not intended for those who are allergic to wool or alpaca would be absolutely super!

              I used this yarn to make a hat for a granddaughter. I got so many requests from other family members I made seven hats altogether! Everyone loves the hats and say they are very warm. This yarn is very nice to work with.
