I'm knitting a multicolor, temperature scarf for a friend who just got her meteorology degree and this yarn is perfect for it. I didn't want primary colors, and the variety this yarn offers works great. The colors are unique but cohesive for the project. Plus the yarn is a dream to work with, smooth and soft and doesn't unravel or snag.

I made the Bas-Relief Blanket using this yarn, which is what is called for in the pattern. It is full of pills and I have yarn dust bunnies all over the house. Very disappointed. I am embarrassed to tell people I made the blanket.

      I like this yarn for watch caps. I knit on #10 needles and can get a cap from one skein. It has looked good in all of the colors I've used.

        I used this yarn to knit a 'top down' sweater with some cable pattern. It knit quickly and is soft and pretty. Finished just in time for 20 degree temperatures! It is warm and cozy out in the cold.

        Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

        I used Berkshire Bulky to make an adorable hooded fox sweater for my grandson Bennett. I hadn't worked with a bulky before and I love the smooth look of the thick stitches when created with a straight knit stitch.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery was prompt and the product was in good condition.

          I bought this wool to make the Gap-tactic cowl. It is perfect for this project. The cowl is all seed stitch, so the definition is beautiful, as is the rich colour. I also really love single ply yarn; it looks so natural and has great bounce.

            Not quite sure how I feel about the yarn. I knit a cable hat and working on matching scarf. Works up great, very soft have not blocked it yet. My only complaint is that is curls when pulling out of ball and that is driving me nuts. This is 3rd skein and all have been same way. Not sure if I will use again for that reason.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

              I love this yarn and have used it, mostly for sweaters, many times. The only tiny complaint that I have is that it is difficult to sew up seams with. I've read complaints about pilling. Although I might have some shedding while working on it, I've never had an issue with pilling or shedding of the finished item. I live in Ma.and most years I can wear one of these sweaters right through the winter, without a coat. I put zippers down the fronts and they are toasty. I would love to see this yarn come in shaded or varigated. Then I could start the whole color pallette over again.
