Berroco Blackstone Tweed Metallic

Berroco Blackstone Tweed Metallic takes Berroco's favorite tweed and spices it up with a hint of glitz. It is the same super soft, stunning tweed as regular Blackstone Tweed with a strand of metallic. The sparkle doesn't overpower and it's a great way to add interest to your project. Made in Italy.

      Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed Metallic:

      I used both the beige tweed and the
      raspberry tweed for gloves and embellished
      them with White Angora. Both these were
      gifts and the recipients were thrilled!

          Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed Metallic:

          I am making a cable sweater and the cables pop. Love the softness of the tweed with it's earthy look that is dressed up by the subtle metallic thread. I purchased more to make another sweater, I love it so much. And after seeing my progress, several friends have also ordered it to start their sweaters.

            I made a sweet girly vest out of this yarn. The color was darker than I was expecting, but still pretty. The texture is full but not overwhelming. Stitch definition is great. This yarn has a sparkley filiment intertwined in it so the sparkle factor is fairly uniform through the knitting. All in all, a nice purchase on sale.

              Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed Metallic:

              I love this yarn! It's a beautiful tweed with just the right amount of metallic sheen. It does have thick and thin spots but that's a calculated part of its look. However, I think high tension knitters will need to try to loosen up because of this. Also, I use a blunter bamboo needle and so I haven't broken the metallic thread yet, but I think it might be possible on sharp tipped needles if one is trying to knit for speed and "splits" the yarn plies.
              These aren't faults of the yarn, just things to watch out for so you get a good result!

                  This knits up beautifully. Just the right amount of sparkle.

                  Glitter was wove in nicely. Made for a special item as a look.
                  To coarse to put directly on skin.
                  I was suprised as it has mohair in it.
                  I did make a hat with matching cowl.

                    I purchased this produce to knit a top-down sweater and it was a perfect choice. A perfect weight for a winter pullover. The variations in color add to the pattern of the sweater for a very interesting garment.
