    I am currently working on a sweater for myself in the boysenberry colorway, but have used this yarn in various solids, prints, and weights in the past and will come back to it again and again. It does have a tendency to untwist on occasion. The boysenberry heather has fluffy blobs of bright red, blue, and pale yellow fiber that are reminiscent of those you'd find in a tweed yarn (and I'd be willing to bet that other colorways have a similar issue). This fluff is not spun in tightly enough to be inclined to leave it, nor is it easy to remove without accidentally snagging a ply from the rest of the strand of yarn. However, it's not been that much of an inconvenience, and the color of the yarn otherwise is hypnotizing. It is almost iridescent, and I have been having a hard time putting it down! I know the finished garment is going to be incredible. I will buy Comfort Heathers again... would give it 4.5 stars if I could.

      Comments about Berroco Comfort Heathers:

      I really liked this for hats for my husband and son. They need tough hats to fish and jog in. I made this yarn into a plain basic hat that would be heavy and warm and could go into the wash after every use. It worked perfectly and looks good every time. I actually doubled the yarn for the fishing hat so it is really thick.

        Comments about Berroco Comfort Heathers:

        I bought this to knit a sweater for a class that recommended 100% worsted wool. It is very soft for not having any natural fibers. It knits up well and doesn't have many flaws that I could find. The only issue I had was that the skein I was working on had some snags already in it. I had to be careful to turn that side inward to prevent future problems. Otherwise, great yarn.

          I used this for a baby blanket--it was my first time knitting with this yarn (it was recommended by a friend). It is so lovely and soft--and easy to wash--perfect for baby stuff.

            I've used this product a few times for baby items and chemo blankets. I prefer it's hand to most other synthetics and there's no hint of that gross acrylic scratchiness. The onlt downside I've encountered is that it's rather splitty. More or a frustration than a real problem causer.

                    I have ordered this yarn two different times in different colors, and I am always amazed at how much prettier the colors are in person, and they are really pretty in the pictures.

                    But the best part is the softness of the yarn. It feels good while knitting, and the completed garment is SOOOOOOO SOOOOOOFFFFTTTT. Love it.
