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.

This yarn and I did not get along. Usually I don't mind yarn other people call too splitty, but while I was making increases, or even knitting straight, Vintage split and I had to carefully watch every stitch. I went through every type of needle I had to try to make this yarn happy.

I'm creating the Norah Gaughan Vintage Afghan using 5 different colors with 20 squares, each with a different pattern. The yarn works up beautifully and I'm hoping the afghan will become an heirloom for my daughter.

    Comments about Berroco Vintage:

    Great yarn to use for items which you would expect to wash. Also a cost effective choice for gifts or projects which are especially challenging, since you don't have a huge investment if you decide to put the project on the shelf for a while.

    Comments about Berroco Vintage:

    I am using this yarn to make an afghan. It doesn't frog well as the plies tend to separate and twist making it a pain to reassemble. The yarn has no luster and isn't lively but does have some spring when knitted. It's a decent workhorse yarn but I wouldn't pay full price for it. The color range is excellent however.

      Comments about Berroco Vintage:

      I had never knitted with this yarn before and bought it to make a sweater for my father-in-law for a Christmas sweater. He has a lot of allergies and I was worried about the texture and shedding. This was a good decision for what I was looking for. Color was as pictured, softer than expected, and slides right through my fingers. I would buy this product again for sure!!!!!

        This is a great worsted weight yarn. It is machine washable so makes it ideal for items for youngsters and babies. The last purchase of this yarn was for a 7-year-old girl's afghan. The stitch definition made this yarn ideal for the reverse stockinette castle pattern.

                  I have made dozens of Aran afghans, usually with Valley Superwash DK. this was my first and last experience with Vintage. besides being rough on the hands, the yarn is so poorly spun that it splits constantly, and the splits are visible in the finished product. it was a waste of time and money, but I completed the blanket and hope that the recipient is not knowledgeable to see the inferior quality of the material.
