I swatched this in a rib cable pattern to see if it would be a good non-wool substitute for a wool blend called for in the pattern. It knit up nicely and held the rib and cable quite well after blocking.

Comments about Berroco Karma:

Worked this up into a lace top. The color is just beautiful and classy. A soft blue into a ever so lighter blue. Very soft looking. It is holding it shape and wares wonderfully.

      I LOVE this yarn!

      By CMJ500

      from Oakland, CA

      Pros

      • Beautiful drape
      • Holds its shape

      Cons

      • Ends Keep Popping Out

      Best Uses

        Comments about Berroco Karma:

        I love this yarn and have knit top-down sweaters in every color available. This is the first cotton yarn I've found in a long time that is lightweight and holds its shape well, which is something I've found is not the case for most cottons. My only complaint is the ends pop out no matter how well I bury them. I went online and found a glue made especially for yarn and fabric. A little dab does the trick and the glue doesn't bleed through. Genius!

          This is being used for an open weave sweater in process. Makes an attractive garment, but does split while knitting.

          Nice yarn to work with

          By Raine

          from Montreal, Quebec, Canada

          Comments about Berroco Karma:

          I am using this yarn for a variation on the sweater pattern originally written for super bulky wool (pictured below). The yarn is really nice, the color is quite consistent, and it drapes beautifully. I have found a few breaks in the third skein - and it's only 66 yds, whereas there were none in the first two that I wound up. We'll see how the rest of the lot goes. I do find it a little sticky on my bamboo needles (which are still relatively new) - it does catch a little from time to time, but it is still an easy yarn to work with. I'm excited to finish the sweater. One star off for the breaks in the yarn, but a pleasure to work with!

          Service and delivery comments:

          Prompt, courteous service - very helpful in securing a consistent dye lot! :-) Thank you - WEBS is my go-to for yarn!
