Upon receiving this yarn I was amazed at how soft it was; I generally don't use acrylics much because my fibromyalgia flares and hurts my fingers and hands when I knit with acrylic yarns. I started a big project with the Comfort Chunky last night and didn't want to stop! It was so soft and easy to knit with; the stitch definition is great as well. I found that if I was going too fast I could split the yarn a bit, but it really wasn't a problem for me at all. I will definitely buy more of the Comfort line in the future!

I bought this to knit a baby blanket for a coworker. I like the chunky weight; it knits up quickly. However, it seems loosely plied; the plies untwist readily. This effect is lessened somewhat by pulling the yarn from the center of the skein, instead of from the outside. But it's splitty and easily snagged. And it will often snag just one ply, so that makes it hard to pull the stitch back into position. I'm disappointed in this yarn and will probably not purchase it again.

    Comments about Berroco Comfort Chunky:

    This yarn is wonderfully soft! The colors are very bright and warm. It was easy to work with and it worked up quickly. It does have a tendency to unravel at the ends so I wouldn't recommend it for a project that involves fringe. I used it to make a shawl that ended up perfectly soft and warm. Overall, I am very happy with this yarn and will be purchasing more in the future

    Comments about Berroco Comfort Chunky:

    I love the feel of this yarn. It tends to split apart quite easily so I have to slow down and really pay attention to each loop. Also several skeins have had multiple knots ( four in one skein) which is frustrating.

            color totally not what was shown at WEBS on line
            Their customer service was of no help and said you can return it but will be charged both ways for shipping cost.
            They were not helpful at all
            very disappointed the WEBS customer service and how the were so off with coloring of yarn

              I love using Webs better than my LYS. More variety. And I never hesitate to "ask the Elkins". Prompt response to all my questions.

              Light twist can cause yarn to split if not careful.

              Comments about Berroco Comfort Chunky:

              I made a pair of Elf Slippers with the funny curled up toes and this yarn was perfect. Knitted them on a smaller needle making the slippers very snug and warm. I don't know how the yarn will wear, but the finished product is excellent. I have left over yarn so I plan to try a different pattern, hat or gloves, to see how it holds up. Very nice to knit with except for twisting.

              It twisted up constantly and when untwisting it the yarn lost some of its integrity, but when knitted it looked fine.

                This yarn is wonderful for baby blankets. It is very soft and can be machined washed. The weight makes the project knit up quickly. I was just surprised two of four skeins were not continuous yarn. The skeins aren't that big.
