        Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

        I've knit 2 striped summer sweaters with this yarn. LOVE IT. Cotton feel without the inflexibility and pain of knitting with pure cotton. Very soft, insane value. Cannot recommend highly enough.

              I really love WEBS! I receive the product very quickly after ordering. My husband says I order, then go to the door to wait...LOL. Seriously, it's very professionally taken care of, all the way from the customer service to the proper packaging. I've never had a problem.

                Easy to block - patterns emerged beautifully in shawls. Works best with a concentrated, methodical technique as the ply easily separates.

                Delivery and condition of the yarn was superb!

                              I made a summer sweater using three colors and have gotten lots of compliments on the scrumptious colors. The yarn was easy to work with and I hope will wash and wear well with the acrylic content

                                Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

                                Weekend is the only yarn I use when I knit gifts for anyone in my brother's family. They love the things I knit, but they are hopeless with laundry. This stuff is the most machine-washable yarn I have ever met. In addition to my upcoming nephew's "baby trousseau", I have knit a sweater for myself and can attest to its softness. The range of colors can't be beat. It has a lovely smooth texture and doesn't feel like a cheap acrylic blend. And SO affordable!
