      Berocco's Vintage Chunky is great if you want a soft, machine-washable yarn that is quick-knitting. It is extremely evenly dyed and gauged (so much so that it could be VERY boring to knit a simple pattern).

      Because it is soft, washable, affordable and warm, it's my favorite yarn for sweaters for my kids.

      Careful knitting is required because every stitch shows in such a bulky, solid-colored yarn. A few of the skeins had weak sections of yarn that I do not typically see in commercial yarn, and which required me to undo partial rows. The yarn does not have a soft feel, although washing helps a bit. The heather colors (I bought dark gray) seemed courser than the solid colors. I made a cardigan, which is rather heavy but nice, as well as a zip-front vest. Both were quick to complete because of the bulky weight.. Although I usually have to use smaller needles to achieve the correct gauge, I actually had to go up a size for this yarn.

          Comments about Berroco Vintage Chunky:

          This yarn is soft and stretchy. I am making a baby blanket and used a smaller needle size to keep the size and stretch under control.

          Service and delivery comments:

          When I found this yarn on yarn.com I was thrilled! I ordered enough to finish a baby blanket. At the time I knew I wouldn't get the same dye lot, but I listed it anyway. To my amazement I received my yarn in THE SAME DYE LOT! I was so excited my daughter thought I was going to pass out, awesome!
          Thank you so much<3

                    I love the color (green - "fennel").....it was a bit darker than I thought it would be, but as it turns out, I'm glad it is. I'm making a cardigan-type sweater and I'm sure I'll wear it a lot!

                        I love this yarn! I knit an afghan for my daughter-in-law using 5 colors. The yarn did not pill or shed. There were no places in any of the skeins that had been joined together. The afghan is warm and beautiful - a perfect weight! She is very happy with it. My other daughter-in-law liked it too so I'm starting a second one!

                          This yarn worked up beautifully. Since the matching toddler sweaters are a gift that I hope will be passed along to the next generation, I felt the price was good. No tangles, no snags & minimal untwisting on ends.

                          Orders were received within 2 days of placing. When I ran short and had to reorder the skeins were even the same dye-lot!

                              I am using Vintage Chunky to make fair isle Christmas stockings for the whole family. This yarn is great for that purpose. It has the quality look of a fair isle wool, but the durability and afforability of a synthetic. I expect these stockings will last a lifetime.

                                This yarn was true to color, texture, and weight. I do wish the skeins came in balls instead, which would make it easier and quicker to begin projects; however as a yarn, it was easy to knit, and created a beautiful finished product. The color was fabulous!
