Berroco Comfort

Comfort is the word for this yarn. Comfort is a soft blend of acrylic and fine nylon that makes for a beautifully draped garment with memory. No stretching out or bagginess will mar your detailed stitchery, shown to best advantage with this smooth, lofty fiber. And the best part? Machine wash and dry, and a huge array of colors. Made in Turkey.

I ordered this yarn, because it was recommended for the pattern I was going to use out of the book, Knitting 101. But it is just wonderful to work with; it us soft and moves smoothly through my fingers and over the needles. I have nothing negative to say about this product.

This yarn has very little stretch and after trying several different cast on methods I decided not to make a sweater with it. It also had many little tufts of white yarn that didn't belong in the blue/green varigated yarn I purchased. When I tried to remove them, the yarn separated and couldn't be twisted back to the original shape. There were also several knots in the skein I tried to work with. The colors are beautiful and I am disappointed that it wouldn't work out for my project but the unopened skeins are going back.

I made a slip stitch sweater for my granddaughter, changing colours every four rows. It is beautiful, but the ends ravel, and appear on the right side.

Comments about Berroco Comfort:

I purchased this yarn to make a baby blanket with, and loved the many colors that it comes in. It is very soft and yes washable which is great for a baby. I did find that the yarn splits and snags very easily, so when the blanket was completed after a few days of knitting, it had snags that are very difficult to hide. The yarn also twists back on itself badly when it's pulled from the skein.

      Comments about Berroco Comfort:

      I ordered this yarn online after asking for advice on the kind of yarn I should order for a specific project; the yarn was delivered quickly. The colors are beautiful and the yarn is very soft. I haven't finished the project so I can't say how it will turn out, but it's going along very well.

          I was looking for a nice worsted weight yarn for some hats I was making. This was excellent for that. Machine washable and very soft. My hats came out beautiful.

          Comments about Berroco Comfort:

          This yarn is best for anything baby or young child. It is very durable and washable. It becomes splitty when knitting sometimes, especially when reknitting after frogging. It is not blockable for size, but looks much nicer after washing and laying flat to dry. It has a much, much nicer feel than other acrylics. There is no "plastic" sensation at all.
