I am making bright colored curtains and plan to make a summer bathing suit cover-up. The cover-up idea came while experiencing the drape when making the curtains. This is not a soft, cozy yarn and will not keep you warm. Which is why I bought a lot to make summer work outfit accessories. Use for items you do not intend to wash often. Would be great with colored / glass beads (LIGHT BULB!) in an airy summer shawl.

The yarn doesn't snag and works up quickly and you have to be sure to keep a tighter tension to maintain the stitch size.

I love this yarn for the project types above. This is not a yarn for an afghan. I'm sad that this yarn is being discontinued.

The yarn looks great, and feels really soft...the shrug came out beautiful...but it just keeps getting bigger everytime I wear it...the sleeves literally lengthen 5 inches in one...Read complete review

    Comments about Berroco Lago:

    I bought two colorways of Lago. I have a Berroco #317 pattern book.

    Rum Punch was selected for a pullover top with lots of yarnovers (Coppitt.) Another project is "Windley." Short sleeve top with pleats that should drape beautifully.

    Comments about Berroco Lago:

    Linen tends to grow throughout the day, so avoid long sleeves. Best for unstructured simple patterns that let the yarn's texture take center stage.
    looser knits on larger needles help reduce the weight.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was prompt, however shipping charges seemed excessive. In fact, the shipping charges were as much as TWO skeins of yarn. Will only purchase from this company again if free shipping is offered.

      PILLS like crazy

      Best Uses

        Comments about Berroco Lago:

        Found this yarn easy to knit with and knits up fairly quickly but the pilling is a real 'downer'. Won't finish the project as I know it won't be wearable more than a couple of times due to the awful shedding/pilling.

          Comments about Berroco Lago:

          I'm normally not a fan of Viscose but a pattern (for a crocheted wrap) I purchased recently called for this yarn. When the yarn arrived, I was not disappointed! The individual colors are absolutely brilliant with a beautiful sheen. The yarn has a nice feel and subtle texture. The piece, so far, is looking good with a nice drape. I will be purchasing this yarn again!

          Delivery prompt and product as described. Using for Berroco Pennekamp tank top. Looks as described. Only problem for me was gauge. Had to use a size 5 needle, not 7, so taking some time to knit up.
