I usually hate knitting with cotton yarn, but I have loved the Captiva by Berroco. It's smooth and easy to knit with, it doesn't split and hasn't been rough on my hands. It's a flat shape, which has made it fast to knit with and it stays put on my needles. I made a lovely Spring/Summer A-line shirt with lace detailing on the neck and the metallic shine on the pear color made this shirt just pop! I've had tons of compliments and several offers to purchase the top. It's gorgeous and I love the drape and shine.

I would not recommend this yarn, in spite of the fact that I found it easy to work with ONCE it was in usable form, and the finished scarf I made was lovely. Simply because all of the 4 hanks I purchased were snarled rats nests... this is AFTER I unwound, untied and laid flat... the resulting large loop was a series of intertwined loops that were impossible to separate. It took as long to untangle this mess as to knit my item. This is a yarn for looks rather than feel. Not ok for baby items. It has beautiful stitch definition and a glossy textured look. Lovely colors. No splitting, easy to spot a mistake. What a shame. 5 star yarn in 0 star form. But I would not reward Berroco for this abominable presentation by buying again.

    Difficult yarn to work with

    By RubyTulip

    from St Louis

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Berroco Captiva:

    Although I did read other reviews that said this yarn was difficult to use due to tangling problems, other reviews loved it. I ordered 3 hank, knowing I would have to be very careful. The pattern I was using recommended this yarn. I carefully tried to work with it, but found it a tangled mess in no time. I spent 3 days untangling it and realized this yarn wasn't for me. I sent back the other two hanks.

      Comments about Berroco Captiva:

      The weight was perfect for the necklaces/scarfs I used it for in crocheting. The frustrating part was beginning the use as it took for ever to get it ready as it tangled and noted on its own. Needed instructions on the label for the way to put it into a ball or start the use.

        Comments about Berroco Captiva:

        Bought for summer cardigan in Orchid. Great color and texture but ends there. Tangles way too easily when winding on ball winder, doesn't hold ball tension. Had to restart winding several times then cut off and order another skein.

            As noted above I am knitting a chuppah for my August wedding. Using size 10 needles and pattern is combination of stocking knit and lace. This yarn is perfect for the result I was looking for. It knits up easily and has a beautiful drape. The shine on the yarn is a nice element.

              Comments about Berroco Captiva:

              The yarn seems to be of good quality. It is stiff and will fall off the needle if you not careful. The stitch definition is good and shows special stitches well. I'm anxious to see how the yarn will drape when worn. Hope it doesn't remain as stiff after washing.

                  So glad I found this yarn. Since Berroco Seduce was discountinued was on the hunt for a similar yarn, and found it in Captiva. This yarn has great draping characteristics and keeps it shape.
