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 wearing! So, I love the shrug, I just keep pushing up my sleeves all day long!

    PILLS like crazy

    Pros

    • Sheds

    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.
