              Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

              I made a summer sweater using three colors and have gotten lots of compliments on the scrumptious colors. The yarn was easy to work with and I hope will wash and wear well with the acrylic content

                Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

                Weekend is the only yarn I use when I knit gifts for anyone in my brother's family. They love the things I knit, but they are hopeless with laundry. This stuff is the most machine-washable yarn I have ever met. In addition to my upcoming nephew's "baby trousseau", I have knit a sweater for myself and can attest to its softness. The range of colors can't be beat. It has a lovely smooth texture and doesn't feel like a cheap acrylic blend. And SO affordable!

                          Yarn has good spring to it and works up well. Suited for children's sweaters because of its washability.

                            Used for very special gift project (tunic) which had been requested initially in another yarn, but customer was more than pleased with the yarn. Excellent value.

                              It has a nice loft and texture and it drapes well; under certain circumstances the fiber can unravel. I used it in a woven shawl, where it worked well. Not heavy at all in weight.

                              I wanted a line of bright colors for children's wear in a warmer climate. I plan to do intarsia motifs. So far, I love the texture and feel of the yarn. I haven't washed it yet, so I am not sure how well it holds up or whether it will pill.
