I have used this yarn to design two patterns - for a scarf and for a hat. It is delightful to work with, though is sticky if you need to rip. I was amazed at how incredibly soft the finished products were while still having the wonderful sparkle. Most sparkly yarns are a little scratchy due to the glitz - not this one. One of my favorite yarns.

I purchased yarn to knit the Flicker Ruffled Scarf. Bought 6 skeins @ 189 yds ea. Project called for 5 skeins & I bought 1 extra. There were 3 to 4 breaks in 5 out of the 6 skeins. Due to 600 plus stitches in every row of ruffle, I could only knit 2 or 3 rows before the yarn was completely separated - not even attached. That along w/ occasional knotted spots, made this difficult to complete project. Loved the feel & sparkle of the Flicker yarn itself, but Berroco needs to correct this spinning problem.

    Comments about Berroco Flicker:

    I bought this yarn to crochet myself a throw to keep cozy while I watch TV or crochet other items. The yarn was extremely lovely to work with and super soft. I have only been crocheting for a few years and had never used this type of yarn before. I love the softness of it and the slight "glimmer" that it contains. Love, love, LOVE this yarn!

    I am very happy about this yarn - it's soft and sparkly! I plan on making at least one sweater out of it for the winter. It will probably be one of the warmest things I own.

      Comments about Berroco Flicker:

      This is a beautiful yarn that comes in really amazing colorways! I love how soft and fuzzy this yarn is. The one con (that's only a con if you're looking for this) is that due to the fuzzy nature of the yarn, you don't necessarily get good stitch definition. I love this yarn for a seed stitch or other loosely stitched knit scarf. The sparkle is very subtle and lovely! The yarn itself is also very interesting in the way that it's braided. It also has a bit of stretch to it, which is nice. I've bought quite a bit of this yarn in several colors, sparkle and otherwise.

        Comments about Berroco Flicker:

        I started a prayer shawl ministry at church several months ago, and have many people who have joined. We knit and crochet prayer shawls for those who are going through a difficult time, and give them away along with a blessing. They are loved! The one I just finished with Berroco Fliker is so stunningly beautiful, and I will be giving it to a lady who is 101 years old and cannot attend church. She will feel wrapped in God's love. I have recommended this yarn to many people.

          Loftiness of this creates a good stretch. It is unbelievably light when finished, despite the appearance of it being thicker. So many compliments on it! The pattern I used this for is a capelet with a ribbing in the pattern. I made one in Black and put it on top of a leather biker jacket. Very cool and edgy! Made it in other colors for friends who LOVE this simple piece. It's warm, despite being light.

              I made a Shawl with it. It made up beautifully and quickly. Very soft, but had lots of body. Am going to make another shawl in the same yarn. Colors are very pretty also.
