    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.

    This yarn was good for my particular project (a Jayne Cobb Cunning Hat from the series Firefly). I needed a rustic yarn in red, orange and yellow and this was the only one I found with all those available. The finished product looks good, but it does pull apart quite a bit and requires twisting while working, which got annoying rather quickly. Chafed my hands a bit too after a couple of hours, so if you're sensitive to that sort of thing you might think twice.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

      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 bought this yarn for tinyowlknits' Dragon Watchers Hood since it was the right weight, a good price, and came in an amazing range of colors. I was surprised to find that not only was it passable and affordable, it was PERFECT. I ended up returning to purchase another hood's worth in another color, as I couldn't imagine knitting my second in any other yarn. Yes, it's hand-wash only, but it's soft and warm and beautiful.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

          I'm in the middle of knitting a HUGE blanket with the Berkshire Bulky Burgandy colored yarn. It's been a pleasure to work with and, after hours and hours and hours of knitting the same color, I'm still not tired of it.
          This yarn is so easy to use and has such a great texture. My only complaints would be the very occasional blemish/knot in the yarn and the shedding, which is to be expected with the 15% alpaca.
          I want to buy every color of this yarn!

          Service and delivery comments:

          Great service. I bought just a few skeins to try it out first, then ordered 24 more. They matched up the dye lot for me and delivery was prompt.

              I originally bought some of this yarn for a sweater for my husband in stone blue. It worked up so fast and was so soft and cuddly, I decided to buy some in ivory for a sweater for myself! This yarn is lovely to work with and is an excellent value!

                Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

                This yarn not as soft as I expected but it works up fast which was my main goal. I had a hard time deciding which hooks worked the best and decided on my smooth wooden hooks that just slide right through the yarn. Plastic and aluminum were kind of "sticky". I'm making a lovely mauve afghan for my living room.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Very quick delivery, package in excellent condition.
