      Loved this yarn so much when it arrived that I ordered more. Beautiful, rich colors. I will definitely be doing many more projects with this - lightweight enough for blankets and throws...

            Berroco's mixes are amazing. I love the colors blended to make Lunar Mix. The drape with great stitch definition are perfect for the tunic I'm knitting.

                The color (Berry) was pinker than I had hoped, but that's one of the downsides of ordering online. I'm knitting a child's sweater vest and the yarn, other than color, is great!

                    I love this yarn, it's so soft. I ordered three and ended up returning one because it was more yellow than I cared for "Seedling Green," Dye lot 62187. Wish I could purchase it locally, but since I can't, this is a great way to get it.

                      I really like the feel and handling of this yarn. I knit a jumper for my daughter who lives in Seattle. She chose the pattern and is thrilled with it so I am knitting another in green with a fleck of yellow that gives it a little light to the green. Although it is not machine washable I expect it will not be hard to launder by hand. I discovered a mistake and had to pull out about 4 inches. It came out smooth and was easy to pick up and go on.
