    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've made several afghans with this yarn. It doesn't pill which I really appreciate. I've worked cables in it and have had no problem. Every mommy appreciates how soft the baby afghans are and how well they hold up.

    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'm making a baby blanket. The result looks and feels good, but the yarn tends to unravel as I'm knitting.

      Comments about Berroco Comfort:

      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.

        Comments about Berroco Comfort:

        I have knit three afghans with this yarn. The stitch definition is great, the finished product is so soft and best of all it's machine washable.

        The only complaint I have about it is that it is difficult to darn in the ends as it untwists so easily. I ended up having to use a bit of fabric glue so the joins didn't show.

        I'm making a bedsized blanket. It feels wonderful worked up. Will be warm and soft. I do have to pay attention because the yarn splits. Looking at pictures of it I thought it would have been spun a bit tighter.

        Comments about Berroco Comfort:

        The yarn is amazingly soft. It will be perfect for a chemo hat. However, it is not a good yarn for crocheting. It has too many plies that constantly get caught by the hook. It might work better as a knitting yarn. I will finish crocheting this hat and then give another color a try with knitting.

            I had used this yarn to knit baby hats. When I wanted to make a blanket for an expected child, I used this yarn. It is so easy to knit and makes a wonderfully soft fabric with a nice drape. Would recommend washing in machine on gentle cycle, then doing a regular last spin to get the remaining water out. Dry in dryer.

                  Comments about Berroco Comfort:

                  I love having the option to use a really fine nylon and acrylic yarn to make projects for my wool sensitive daughter. This acrylic is not like acrylic at all! It has the feel of a silky cotton and it is a pleasure to knit with compared to the usual acrylic yarns available. I always buy the Borroco Comfort yarn when I am wanting a wool substitute. This yarn is high quality and so soft!
