    This yarn works well for crochet, doesn't split or snag. I've seen comments that it doesn't work as well for knitting (I haven't tried that), but it works like a dream for crochet projects! Color note: I did find that the actual yarn color was noticeably darker than presented on the website.

    Purchased this yarn for a color work sweater. The yarn is beautiful, BUT splitty, pills very easily, and I found the colored yarns significantly lighter in weight than the natural color. Go figure! Would not purchase again.

      It literally kept coming apart as I knitted. Knotted up like crazy and it sheds like crazy. Its just horrible overall. Don't buy this product.

      Comments about Berroco Lustra:

      Webs service was as always flawless. I bought this yarn along with another for a specific project. The hat turned out very nicely. This yarn is pretty and has a nice sheen to it. Be aware that it splits easily and can knot easily when ripping stitches after mistakes (and did I make them on this project!). It is a beautiful yarn when worked. I am getting together an order for my next project and it does include this yarn.

        Comments about Berroco Lustra:

        I have used Lustra for two projects, so far. One is a wrap vest. The other is a large poncho. Lustra is a tactile delight to work with. I'm a crocheter, using an H Hook.The sheen from the Tencel is really lovely and of course, the wool adds warmth. Your volume discount and sale price for discontinued colors makes this a luxury yarn at a resonable price.

          Comments about Berroco Lustra:

          I bought this knit because of the color, weight and feel to knit a scarf for my oldest son for Christmas. I didn't have a problem until I was doing the kitchener stitch bind off (was a provisional cast on). It shredded 3 times! I hope the way I patched it up will be enough...time will tell. Very disappointed since it is such a pretty and soft yarn.

              I love yarn with a subtle shine such as this. It's very smooth and knits up beautifully. Also, it ranges from saturated colors to unusual light values. I have over 4,000 yarns in my palette, and several of these Lustras are unique. Currently, I'm knitting a modular throw rug using Lustra Chateau as one of the main colors, then a wall hanging.

                This yarn was wonderful to work with! I actually made two headband/ear protectors for my college-age granddaughter and my grandson's girlfriend. It worked up quickly and is so soft to the touch. They both loved their pieces.

                  Comments about Berroco Lustra:

                  Beautiful yarn but it splits when knitted due to the loose single ply construction. A firm or dense stitch will add structure to the knitted piece. The color is amazing and evenly dyed - I had to use 2 different dyelots but the color was consistent between them. I made a sweater for myself & my daughter loved the color so much that she will get one for her birthday.

                    First, the yarn is gorgeous. The colour depth is amazing, and the shine is so nice. The softness is wonderful. However, I think that is the problem. I have started knitting with it, and it is falling apart in my hands and fuzzing up.

                    I now have several skeins of it that I was going to knit the "Divine Vest" from "Finish Free Knits" but now I don't know what to do - - - the swatch is all fuzzy all ready, which means that I expect it to start looking ratty and cheap after a wearing or two.
