      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.

            I love the color (green - "fennel").....it was a bit darker than I thought it would be, but as it turns out, I'm glad it is. I'm making a cardigan-type sweater and I'm sure I'll wear it a lot!

                I love this yarn! I knit an afghan for my daughter-in-law using 5 colors. The yarn did not pill or shed. There were no places in any of the skeins that had been joined together. The afghan is warm and beautiful - a perfect weight! She is very happy with it. My other daughter-in-law liked it too so I'm starting a second one!

                  This yarn worked up beautifully. Since the matching toddler sweaters are a gift that I hope will be passed along to the next generation, I felt the price was good. No tangles, no snags & minimal untwisting on ends.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Orders were received within 2 days of placing. When I ran short and had to reorder the skeins were even the same dye-lot!

                      I am using Vintage Chunky to make fair isle Christmas stockings for the whole family. This yarn is great for that purpose. It has the quality look of a fair isle wool, but the durability and afforability of a synthetic. I expect these stockings will last a lifetime.

                        This yarn was true to color, texture, and weight. I do wish the skeins came in balls instead, which would make it easier and quicker to begin projects; however as a yarn, it was easy to knit, and created a beautiful finished product. The color was fabulous!

                          I'm using Vintage Bulky to knit a cabled caplet (on cover of Knit:Wear Sept 2011). Having knit one of these in an alpaca/mohair held double I wasn't really sure about using a yarn with acrylic. But the recipient wanted the caplet to be washable. I am very pleased with the color (teal) and the way the cables show up. The fabric is substantial but light, and I think the finished caplet will be even prettier than my original -- and at about half the price.
                          Color is better than shown on the website. I checked several other sites before I ordered. It's pleasurable to knit, as well.

                            I love how this yarn knits up quickly. I have no problems with splitting. It feels good in the hands while knitting. The fact that it is washable makes it a good choice for hats and scarves.

                              I made 2 hats for my grandson with this yarn. He will only wear these hats now, which is a big deal as he lives in the northern states. It can be washed, and does not take too long to air dry. It knits up with good elasticity, so fits well without constricting, which explains his preference. Great product!
