      I was reluctant at first to get this yarn because it looked rather flimsy and was expensive, but I was obsessed with the sweater - Gibson from the Norah Gaughan collection, Vol. 13. After trying a few other yarns, I finally broke down and bought this yarn and am I glad I did. The yarn is easy to work with and so soft. The Russian Join method works really well with this yarn.

      I was disappointed that each skein of this yarn that I purchased had a knot in it to tie pieces together to complete the skein. Also, it's mostly even thickness to the yarn, but occasionally there's a really really thin part or a really really thick part, making lumps and bumps in the finished fabric.

      Comments about Berroco Kodiak:

      Service was, as always, flawless. I bought this yarn for a specific pattern that used this yarn. I most likely would not have otherwise. The hat turned out well I think. Would I think of this yarn first for other projects? No, I don't think so. It's a pretty yarn but can be a bit fussy to work with. I enjoyed it but now I'm over it. Unless I decide to make another hat! I would recommend this yarn for the project I just finished.

        IT'S SO COLD THIS WINTER. SO I DECIDE TO KNIT A WARM BUT SOFT, LIGHT BIG SCARF FOR MY DAUGHTER. I'M GLAD THAT I FOUND A BEAUTIFUL PATTERN AND THE THIS YARN TO KNIT WITH. THE RESULT -IT'S LIKE A CLOUD AS MY DAUGHTER SAYS. SHE WEARS HER SCARF EVERY DAY. I'M GOING TO KNIT ONE FOR MYSELF ANDMY FRIEND AS MY NEXT PROJECT.

          This yarn is beautiful, soft, and retains a deep color. I'm making my niece a cardigan with a wide cable stitch and it is going very smoothly.

          Comments about Berroco Kodiak:

          I love working with this yarn. It knits up nicely and is nice for scarves and neckwear as it is so soft against the skin. I will warn others that the online colors are much brighter than the actual color.

          Comments about Berroco Kodiak:

          I needed a bulky yarn for a sweater pattern. After much research I selected this Berroco. The color is nice, it's very soft but it sheds alot. It also does not show the pattern well at all (even after blocking). It's been disappointing. It is relatively easy to work with but not the easiest to fix mistakes. Cautious recommendation.

            This yarn is like knitting a kitten. It's soooooooo soft and fluffy. The down side of that is that it sheds a good bit. If you can put up with the shedding, it feels really dreamy once it's knit up. The scarf I am making is a gift, but now I want one, too.

            Although this yarn is very soft and nice to work with, the actual color is much duller than the color pictured (midnight sun)
