This is a lovely textural yarn with its thick/thin nature. It has wonderful drape and sheen. I made the Caloosa sweater and have had many compliments on it. I ordered more yarn to make another for a gift. While the cowl does stretch a bit with long wear, it recovers well when washed. The sweater is a good traveler.

This yarn is a bit slippery and can split, but is well worth the bit of special care needed while knitting.

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

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!

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.

          Best Uses

          • Shawls

          Comments about Berroco Lago:

          I bought this yarn unseen as it was used in a specific tank top by the manufacturer. However, if I had been able to see and touch the yarn prior to buying, I would have passed it up. It is a flat yarn which gets a bit wider at even intervals in order to give your project "texture". This secific yarn feels rough to work with and has irritated the skin on my fingers. The yarn being flat affects the stitches much more than I expected. I have to pull it very tightly to avoid the stitching looking exceptionally sloppy (versus textured). I will NOT purchase the Berroco Lago again because I don't enjoy working with it.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Have no issues with service or delivery. Nice website for anyone interested in good yarns. Will order again from here.
