Berroco Blackstone Tweed

Soft and tweed don't usually go together in the same sentence, but thanks to the addition of super kid mohair and angora, Berroco Blackstone Tweed is a stunner. The gorgeous palette means beautiful finished garments in either one color or colorwork. Made in Italy.

I've made 2 sweaters from this line of yarn and they have both turned out beautifully: an intricate cable cardigan and a cropped tunic vest. Used needles size 5-7 which requires a longer time to complete garments but looks wonderful. Not for the knitter who wants to knit hastily on size 8 needles and above.

I purchased this yarn at a LYS in order to make a cardigan. The yarn was soft and despite the price I bought it. The yarn does not have an even texture and is quite thin in places. It is a bit thin for a worsted weight, the number of stitches per inch were spot on but the height of the rows came out short. The yarn has a lot of mohair & angora (35% total) which I believe may compromise the integrity of the yarn's strength. The yarn will break with the slightest of tension. I don't recommend for use with a pattern with cables. You can't pull the stitches tight enough to prevent gapping holes without the yarn breaking. I think this yarn is best suited for small projects, but definitely not a sweater.

        Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed:

        I'm using this yarn to make a cable knit shrug. I love the feel and casual look of the piece. The yarn is great to work with but it's not as soft as I thought it was going to feel. That said, I highly recommend this yarn and am considering it for another project I have in the wings.

          This was the second time I ordered from Webs, and both times I was amazed how quickly my order was delivered. It was just what I ordered too. The ladies I knit with recommended you when I was running out of yarn for an almost completed project and they were right. I would not hesitate to order yarn from your company again. Thank you.

            The Blackstone Tweed knitted into a very handsome cardigan for my son-in-law. It keeps its shape so well after washing and will give him years and years of wear.

            I made a simple top-down raglan with A-line shape. I still have to block it. It will be interesting to see how it wears. I think that the stitches will settle nicely after blocking and a few wears. It strikes me as a garment that will hold up over time as long as the moths don't get to it!!

                  Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed:

                  This yarn is so soft and pliable. It feels like cotton. It glides through your fingers very easily. The way it is woven it does not twist up, which is a great feature. The only downside to this yarn is that it breaks very easily. When I'm attaching a new ball (with the method of the "magic knot), if I pull to tighten it a little too much, it breaks, but otherwise, it fabulous. I'm still working on my piece, a sweater, otherwise I would put a photo of it.

                      I have knitted a great aran sweater with this yarn in the steamers color, and am in the process of knitting a dress in the clover oatmeal color. This yarn is soft, light and very warm. It's soft enough for me to wear directly on the skin, though I have knitted with softer yarns. For someone who is very sensitive, it might still feel scratchy. I love the tweed nubs, especially their colors, which are in perfect harmony with the yarn color.
