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.

        I used this yarn to knit a jacket with a lot of detail. I'd made the jacket a couple times before with different yarn. This yarn was so much better. The stitch definition just popped.

            Berkshire Bulky is used by the Shawl Ministry at First Presbyterian Church in San Antonio to make soft enfolding shawls for persons going through crisis, challenge and change.It knits up quickly. If it were machine washable, it would be perfect.

                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!

                    Worsted Berkshire is nice, too.
                    Both are great values.
