    This yarn is so beautiful and soft to the touch. Prior to the first project that I made with the Berroco Vintage, (a blanket for my Mom for Christmas using Tide Pool and Breezeway) I had been using yarn from a craft store, but I don't think I'll ever go back. It knits up quickly, and the stitch definition is beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft it was when it knitted up, and while I used it to make a blanket, as previously noted, I will also be using the remaining yarn to make a pair of mittens for myself. It was also discountable, so this beautiful yarn was comparable in cost to the yarn I was buying in craft stores.

    The one thing I would say negatively about the yarn was that in some cases there was less yardage in the Tide Pool color than the Breezeway, but not enough of a difference that it affected the project that I was making.

    I usually don't purchase synthetic fibers or synthetic blends. BUT i had a commissioned request for a specific color and easy care. So i purchased this yarn. It's fine, it's soft and good yardage, and doesn't seem like a substandard fiber. However, it was the same price, if not more expensive than some of the 100% wool yarns on here... like cascade. I was ok with a close color because i know that depending on the monitor a color can look slightly different, but unfortunately the color was way off from the picture and considerably darker and more blue. Even though the color is beautiful in it's own right, it was far from the picture. I wasn't able to use it for the project, and ended up buying another yarn. So, be wary of the pictures and expect darker, and it's a nice wool blend. So if you want a quality blend, this is a good yarn.... but even so, in my opinion it's expensive for what it is.

          Comments about Berroco Vintage:

          I bought about 8 hanks of this yarn for an aran sweater and so far it's looking great! I chose Berroco Vintage because a friend of mine had knit several beautiful aran sweaters for family members and herself. They all turned out wonderfully and they're all machine washable! I'm looking forward to seeing how this sweater turns out.

            I used this yarn to make a black and white tube scarf and several hats for my son in Chicago. The scarf looks beautiful and is soft, warm, and easy to wash. I have ordered more colors and will used this yarn as a go-to yarn for worsted projects.

            Comments about Berroco Vintage:

            I only gave this yarn a 4 rating because there is a slight chance of splitting, but definitely not a reason to not use. I actually reordered more after the first pair knitted.

            This particular yarn was used primarily for fingerless
            gloves as gifts. It is soft with a smooth knit, can
            be laundered with ease and easy to
            work with.

            The end product presents well for gifts smooth and elegant. Gave as gifts and received requests for more.

            This yarn is a rather light worsted weight, very soft, with pretty vivid colors. I used if for mittens and was happy with the results. Used 6 and 8 needles--on the 8's, the yarn was not thick or bulky but was flexible and shaped to the hand. The price is reasonable, too.

              Comments about Berroco Vintage:

              If you are looking for a soft and durable yarn that is easy to care for, this is it. I have used this yarn for several children's sweaters that have been worn, loved, and washed multiple times. They still look beautiful. I especially love the heathered colors and think they are slightly softer than the solids.

                I purchased this yarn to make a large throw. I bought several different colors. They are all pretty. The yarn is soft and is working wonderfully for my project. It was important that I could machine wash the blanket and that it would stand up to heavy use.

                Fuschia color not accurate

                  Comments about Berroco Vintage:

                  The color shown for Fuschia is VERY innaccurate. I realize there are differences in computer screens, but even the name of this color implies a bright purple-pink (as does the picture). The yarn that arrived is a rather faded gray-violet. This was supposed to be for a sweater for my daughter (she picked the color) and now I can't use it.
                  The yarn quality itself may be fine, but I may never find out how it works up in crochet. (see also Service comment)

                    Comments about Berroco Vintage:

                    This really is my go-to yarn especially for gifts. This yarn contains wool so it has the advantages of that material yet it is soft and washable for gift recipients that may not be aware of how to care for a 100% wool. I've used it for hats, mittens, sweaters and even socks. Also a nice color selection.
