    I've made a cardigan with this yarn, and it's one of my favorites for everyday wear. Even after nine months of frequent use, the fabric has held up beautifully with minimal pilling. And, of course, it's a great value for the price. I'm definitely looking forward to getting more for a future project.

    I bought this yarn based on the great reviews, sale price, and beautiful color. I'm making a vest with it and have been disappointed with its tendency to stick to itself and the resulting difficulty in ripping out rows to make corrections. It behaves like mohair! I imagine that it would be great for felting (but not what I had in mind). It may be that, once I'm finished, it will make a lovely garment. It's just a little frustrating to work with.

      I've used Peruvia before to make a blanket and just loved it! This time, I am making a hat and enjoying working with it again. I would definitely recommend this yarn.

        Comments about Berroco Peruvia:

        I don't care for bulky yarn and hardly ever use it. This is an Aran-weight and isn't plied, so I was expecting a lot of bulk in the finished product. I made my husband a pullover and really got the best of both worlds--it knit up super-fast, and yet the fabric was smooth and conformed well to his shape. It really is perfect for warm sweaters without a lot of bulk. There are tons of colors so I'll be buying it again.

          I have knit several pairs of wonderful fingerless gloves -- for my farmer grandsons, who have apple trees to prune in the coldest part of winter. Never mind texting -- this yarn keeps fingers warm while working! Great yarn -- knits up beautifully.

            I made the Livingston Stole with the red. Fun to knit with; however, I think this yarn is best used for felted items.

              Excellent value. Made a beret with Peruvia and it felted up by hand in only 10 minutes, exactly what I intended.

                I recently started a sweater in Peruvia.This yarn feels wonderfully soft and gives great stitch definition. As always, Webs shipped the yarn very quickly and everything was exactly what I ordered. I ordered this yarn in two more colors. Love ordering from Webs.
