    Berroco Blackstone Tweed

    Soft and tweed don't usually go together in the same sentence, but thanks to the addition of super kid mohair and angora, Berroco Blackstone Tweed is a stunner. The gorgeous palette means beautiful finished garments in either one color or colorwork. Made in Italy.

      i bought this yarn in several colors in order to knit gifts. the yarn arrived quickly and i was delighted with the colors, which look much better in person. the first thing i knit was a slouchy beret. i liked it so much i kept it for myself. then i knit another which came out just lovely. the stitch definition was good, the yarn is soft and i love the tweedy look. it has also kept its shape. i made fingerless mitts after this. i HAD to order more of this yarn in green to knit a birthday beret. i am delighted with blackstone tweed yarn.

      I purchased this yarn at a LYS in order to make a cardigan. The yarn was soft and despite the price I bought it. The yarn does not have an even texture and is quite thin in places. It is a bit thin for a worsted weight, the number of stitches per inch were spot on but the height of the rows came out short. The yarn has a lot of mohair & angora (35% total) which I believe may compromise the integrity of the yarn's strength. The yarn will break with the slightest of tension. I don't recommend for use with a pattern with cables. You can't pull the stitches tight enough to prevent gapping holes without the yarn breaking. I think this yarn is best suited for small projects, but definitely not a sweater.

        I made a long-sleeved cardigan and it turned out great. Am surprised by how lightweight the sweater feels when I wear it, but the yarn is warm, too. Just lovely yarn.

          Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed:

          I love tweed and am glad I got the black. Nice flecks of white and grey are throughout and it knits up beautifully. The only disappointment was that altho I checked my gauge, it is knitting up larger than expected. If I were doing the same sweater again, I'd use smaller needles than I am now.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Webs' website is easy to use and navigate. Yarn was delivered within days of when I ordered it, arrived in good condition and I had no need to speak to a sales rep. In the past, when I phoned and asked a technical question I got excellent service and helpful information.

              Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed:

              Am using the Blackstone Tweed to make a sweater (free Berroco pattern). It is working up well. Feels good in the hands, and expect it to give a comfortable sweater. Pattern has cable and also open work which all seems to be looking good so far. The angora does not leave your clothes looking like a mess. The tweed is pleasing to look at as the sweater progresses.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was prompt and all was in good condition upon arrival. Did not need customer service. Thus far all purchases have arrived in a timely manner. Am pleased with Webs yarn offerings and their service.

                        i bought this yarn in several colors in order to knit gifts. the yarn arrived quickly and i was delighted with the colors, which look much better in person. the first thing i knit was a slouchy beret. i liked it so much i kept it for myself. then i knit another which came out just lovely. the stitch definition was good, the yarn is soft and i love the tweedy look. it has also kept its shape. i made fingerless mitts after this. i HAD to order more of this yarn in green to knit a birthday beret. i am delighted with blackstone tweed yarn.
