Berocco's Vintage Chunky is great if you want a soft, machine-washable yarn that is quick-knitting. It is extremely evenly dyed and gauged (so much so that it could be VERY boring to knit a simple pattern).

Because it is soft, washable, affordable and warm, it's my favorite yarn for sweaters for my kids.

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:

    This wasn't as bulky as I expected, but ended up being perfect for my project, a cowl. It worked up quickly and had a nice feel as I was working it. The color was darker than I expected, but that may be an issue with my monitor. Color swatches would be nice!

    Service and delivery comments:

    My yarn order arrived quickly, as always when I order from this company.

      I needed a big quantity of yarn to make a blanket, and this was good considering the price. The main problem is that while knitting it splits a lot which is annoying.

        I made an owl hat for my 8 year old son. The yarn knits up quickly and has beautiful stitch definition. It is also nice and soft and doesn't seem scratchy at all.

          Comments about Berroco Vintage Chunky:

          Yarn was far from chunky--more like a regular worsted. Not at all what I expected from the description. This would be fine for a sweater or hat but not for the project I am working on. I will order it again when I want to make something else.

          Comments about Berroco Vintage Chunky:

          The splitting and snagging of this yarn is the biggest problem, in my view, but I want a machine washable sweater to give my guy for Christmas.

          I will buy it again, because it may just be an issue with my pattern and needles. I am knitting on a smaller needle to get the correct gauge.

          All things said and done, it's a very nice yarn for the price.

            I bought this to crochet an afghan and started it with hook suggested and found out that is not as described, more like thin worsted weight...too bad I bought enough for and afghan and cannot use or return...not soft either.
            I do adore the colors so maybe I an use for something someday

                If you watch the show Outlander and are attempting to duplicate the Claire Cowl, this a my go to yarn for making that project. I knit with two strands together. Love this yarn.
