I used this yarn many times, and I will use it again. Used many different colors, and none disappointed. Made hats and scarfs as gifts. Made home decore items for myself. Cannot say enough good things about this yarn. Knits evenly and quickly, with beautiful stitch definition, soft and warm. My favorite inexpensive yarn!

Careful knitting is required because every stitch shows in such a bulky, solid-colored yarn. A few of the skeins had weak sections of yarn that I do not typically see in commercial yarn, and which required me to undo partial rows. The yarn does not have a soft feel, although washing helps a bit. The heather colors (I bought dark gray) seemed courser than the solid colors. I made a cardigan, which is rather heavy but nice, as well as a zip-front vest. Both were quick to complete because of the bulky weight.. Although I usually have to use smaller needles to achieve the correct gauge, I actually had to go up a size for this yarn.

    Comments about Berroco Vintage Chunky:

    I ordered this yarn recently to knit a long cardigan sweater. It's the perfect yarn for this project. The color (a dark purple plum) is great, since there is a very subtle bit of dark blue in the yarn. This gives it a deep, rich look, rather than being just a flat purple.

    The yarn is very soft and pleasant to knit with. At this gauge, of course it knits up quickly, too. Machine washable, too! Highly recommended.

    Knits up super quickly and is delightfully snugly, but it has so little twist that it snags easily and was very splitty to work with.

        I love how soft Vintage is (in any weight!) and how nicely it knits up. The fact that it's washable makes it a great option to baby sweaters and blankets, which are the top things I knit using this yarn.

            I found I was a skein short to finish an Afghan. So pleased to find the yarn color needed. To my surprise, it was also the exact dye lot to match what I had been using! Thank you WEBS!!

                  I am a first time user of this yarn. I have used the Vintage Berroco and love it so I thought I would try the Berroco Chunky. I love it! Very soft and knits up quickly. This yarn does not split while knitting and has great stitch definition. This yarn is great for afghans. Living in the Northeastern part of the U.S. we use afghans a lot and this is the warmest afghan I now own. I highly recommend this yarn.

                  Had purchased product several years ago and didn't have enough yarn to finish the item started. Needed just one more skein and the color was exactly what I needed.
