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

            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.

                    Because of the material used this yarn is a little stiff, but it produces a beautiful summer fabric, especially when knit with a larger needle. I'm making the scoop-back tank out of the summer issue of KnitScene for my teen. A beachy-look that should wear well.

                    Yarn is a lovely color (papaya) and makes a nice summer scarf. I would probably not use this yarn for anything that would get a lot of wear and tear (hats, sweaters).

                      I am making a spring sweater with Berrocco Lago Pale Hibiscus...I love the yarn...it is so elegant! It has a loose weave and is easy to use. It is a bit hard to tell the knits from the purls, though, because it is rather nubby. But, all in all, just gorgeous. I needed more yarn and thank heavens, I found it here!
