        Fast delivery. Yarn splits had to recount to keep stitch count correct. Made Honey Drop Designs Lilac and lace. Dress Shoes Hat Bloomers and bib.Just ordered lots more for more baby items. Nice colors.
        When I hand washed the items very heavy.

        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.

                Comments about Berroco Weekend DK:

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

                Service and delivery comments:

                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!
