I've made two sweaters and a vest with Linsey, and I love working with the yarn and wearing the finished products. While the ribbing at the neck stretched for one sweater, the body of the sweater was fine. I adapted the pattern to close in the neck a bit, and it is now fine. It is important to match the gauge to keep the stitches firm. The colors are beautiful; I want them all!

First time I wore the sweater, it stretched in length and width several inches over the day. My pretty sweater ended up looking like I was wearing an old rag by the end of the day. Can't tell you how disappointed I am with this yarn.

    Comments about Berroco Linsey:

    I bought this yarn for a Custom Fit sweaterh class that I'm taking on Feb 21. I knitted a 6 x 8 swatch on both a #7 and #8 needle. I've decided to use the 7. This will be a Spring, 3/4 sleeve V-neck tunic. And I love the color, it's called blonde, but is really a very soft, muted spring green. One of my fave colors in my wardrobe.

        Comments about Berroco Linsey:

        I bought this yarn to make a sweater designed for this yarn. I was so excited... until I started knitting. The yarn stretched so much, it was unusable. It was so bad, I couldn't even get a good caston row. I was so disappointed. I will never buy linen again. The colors are so beautiful but I have no idea what I will be able to use this yarn for. What a huge waste.

          I've made a few garments from this yarn and like it very much. It's an excellent mid- to lightweight yarn in marvelous earth-and-sky colors. So far I've made a kimono from it and an oversized top (from a Berroco pattern). Am planning a cardigan from another Berroco pattern.

              I am using Linsey for the second time now for a rather involved cabled and twisted cardigan pattern. The yarn gives good definition for the cables and drapes nicely for a casual look to the garment. There have been a couple of imperfections/knots that I have had to hide, hence the four stars and not five.

              Comments about Berroco Linsey:

              I'm making summer garments, and am using this at a larger gague. It's creating a lightweight, breathable fabric with lovely drape. One thing, it's what I would call a "rustic" yarn. I like the rustic look, there's a real "At the Beach" feel to what I've made with it so far. It's got a sort of slubby appearance. However, there are traces of the linen husk( Stalk? Scratchy plant thingies?) in the yarn on occasion. This is why I gave it 4 stars as opposed to 5.
