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.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

    This was the recommended yarn for a pattern from Baby Cocktails, and probably the first time I have ever used the actual recommended yarn for a project. So glad I did! This has knit up quickly and not a single problem issue with the yarn. The color is deeply saturated and no knots!!! This is going to be a nice soft squishy sweater! I would recommend this yarn for certain.

          I used the product for a queen sized blanket with a cable pattern. Great yarn, easy to work with. Very soft and great even colors for all 2000 yards! Does twist a little but not bad

              I like this yarn for watch caps. I knit on #10 needles and can get a cap from one skein. It has looked good in all of the colors I've used.

                I used this yarn to knit a 'top down' sweater with some cable pattern. It knit quickly and is soft and pretty. Finished just in time for 20 degree temperatures! It is warm and cozy out in the cold.

                I used Berkshire Bulky to make an adorable hooded fox sweater for my grandson Bennett. I hadn't worked with a bulky before and I love the smooth look of the thick stitches when created with a straight knit stitch.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was prompt and the product was in good condition.

                  I bought this wool to make the Gap-tactic cowl. It is perfect for this project. The cowl is all seed stitch, so the definition is beautiful, as is the rich colour. I also really love single ply yarn; it looks so natural and has great bounce.
