    I've made two sweaters and a vest with Linsey, and I love working with the yarn and wearing the finished products. While the ribbing at the neck stretched for one sweater, the body of the sweater was fine. I adapted the pattern to close in the neck a bit, and it is now fine. It is important to match the gauge to keep the stitches firm. The colors are beautiful; I want them all!

    First time I wore the sweater, it stretched in length and width several inches over the day. My pretty sweater ended up looking like I was wearing an old rag by the end of the day. Can't tell you how disappointed I am with this yarn.

        Comments about Berroco Linsey:

        I am using Linsey for the second time now for a rather involved cabled and twisted cardigan pattern. The yarn gives good definition for the cables and drapes nicely for a casual look to the garment. There have been a couple of imperfections/knots that I have had to hide, hence the four stars and not five.

        Comments about Berroco Linsey:

        I'm making summer garments, and am using this at a larger gague. It's creating a lightweight, breathable fabric with lovely drape. One thing, it's what I would call a "rustic" yarn. I like the rustic look, there's a real "At the Beach" feel to what I've made with it so far. It's got a sort of slubby appearance. However, there are traces of the linen husk( Stalk? Scratchy plant thingies?) in the yarn on occasion. This is why I gave it 4 stars as opposed to 5.

          Fulls slightly and becomes very soft after laundering. A little expensive for the yardage, but very nice to work with.

              positive:I liked the product's texture and appearance. the colour variations work well. finished product has a good hand feel.

              negative: Each skein had a knot somewhere in it. Some skeins were easy to wind, out of eight skeins purchased 2 skeins took 2-3 hours to untangle most half hour to hour. for yarn this expensive more care should be taken for better quality control with time spent unwinding skein I believe I could have completed one side of sweater

                I'm knitting a sweater with this yarn and am very happy with it so far. It's a soft summer weight yarn with beautiful drape.
                The colours are gorgeous and look just the way they do on WEBS.
                Great service from this company as well!
