        I used this yarn to make a toddler sweater. The color was rich, the yarn easy to work with, and cables and fancy stitches were well defined. I also liked the large wool content and the fact that the garment was still washable. I will definitely use this yarn again and recommend it highly.

          Comments about Berroco Vintage DK:

          Bought this yarn for a girl's sweater because the color, pumpkin, was what was requested. Normally, I do not knit with acrylic ... prefer natural fibers. Have not yet knit the garment but have done several swatches. Nice to knit with; feels more like wool than acrylic but soft; and best of all machine washes and tumble dries (despite what the label says) beautifully!! I always swatch and wash it multiple times before starting project, so will know what instructions to include with my gift.

          When my LYS was closing, I was able to purchase almost enough of this beautiful yarn for a sweater. Webs to the rescue. I was able to purchase the additional I needed and in the same dye lot. Happy customer!

          This is my favorite yarn. It is so soft, drapes beautifully. DK is now my go-to weight of yarn so I look for projects that I can use it with.

            Comments about Berroco Vintage DK:

            I bought two contrasting Berroco skeins of Vintage DK yarn for "Looking for Spring", a cute free stranded hat pattern on Ravelry.

            This yarn was perfect for the project. I'm an experienced knitter, but a novice at stranded knitting. The finished project produced very even stitches and the yarn was lovely to work with. A huge bonus I wasn't expecting was seeing the yarn bloom with a slight halo, after soaking and blocking the hat.

            I love Berroco products; you can't go wrong with them.

                  Soft off white yarn that works up well. Some of the colors I have of this brand is rather rough but the pastels, whites and light browns are great. I make baby hats for newborns and Toy Bunnies. It holds it shape well and stuffs nicely without a lot of stretch. Will buy more when I run out.

                    I chose this yarn because of its wool content as I'm knitting a coat and concerned about shape retention.
