I used this yarn many times, and I will use it again. Used many different colors, and none disappointed. Made hats and scarfs as gifts. Made home decore items for myself. Cannot say enough good things about this yarn. Knits evenly and quickly, with beautiful stitch definition, soft and warm. My favorite inexpensive yarn!

Careful knitting is required because every stitch shows in such a bulky, solid-colored yarn. A few of the skeins had weak sections of yarn that I do not typically see in commercial yarn, and which required me to undo partial rows. The yarn does not have a soft feel, although washing helps a bit. The heather colors (I bought dark gray) seemed courser than the solid colors. I made a cardigan, which is rather heavy but nice, as well as a zip-front vest. Both were quick to complete because of the bulky weight.. Although I usually have to use smaller needles to achieve the correct gauge, I actually had to go up a size for this yarn.

      Comments about Berroco Vintage Chunky:

      I was very hesitant to use this yarn and once it arrived I wound the yarn and began with my NEW Marblz needles and started my sweater. In 2 days I had the back done and half o the left front finished!!!! AND I only knit in the evening. At this point I ordered more in a different color. I knew that I was going to be a knitting machine. The only negative that I had was I had to ball the yarn. My swift broke and dreaded the job... but, this had NOTHING to do with the yarn. IT was heaven to work with and I just LOVED it. Sweater #2 is now on the needles :O) THANK YOU BEROCCO.

        For a wool-acrylic blend, this yarn is soft and wooly. It's affordable enough for a large project. Colors are attractive.

          I am using this yarn to make a sweater that can be worn outside and washed every day if needed. I think this yarn will hold up well. I liked the DK weight product of the same name better.

                I bought 3 colors to make fingerless mitts for friends. I used a simple pattern with a cable down the front. They came out great! My friends loved them. I'm now going to make a pair for myself!

                  I used this to make a scarf for my 79-year-old father, so I needed something that was warm (he lives in Wyoming!), but was still soft and nonitchy, and was washable. I was wondering about the color -- it's pretty bright -- but he loves it. He just told me he uses it every day.

                    This is my favorite yarn for gifts. It has a nice texture to knit with, even though it contains some acrylic. Items made with it knit up remarkably quickly and look great. Not to mention the colors are rich and beautiful.
