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.

Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

I made a shawl collar vest with this yarn. It knit up beautifully. While the yarn sheds a wee bit (a side effect of alpaca yarn) in general it was awesome to knit with. I love my vest!

    Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

    the basket ended up being taller than I expected since it didn't felt down as much as I thought. However, I had enough extra yarn to make another basket half as tall... just what I expected.

      Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

      My daughter and I have purchased this yarn in several colors,
      We love it! It surpassed our expectations!! We immediately decided
      this will not be our last time purchasing it!!! The thickness is full and
      consistent, very soft, great color! We have done some felting,
      and knitting.

      Best Uses

      • Felting

      Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

      I love working with natural animal fibers, especially wool for felting and designing gifts for others. This yarn is really gorgeous in color, very rich, and in touch, not much could be softer and smoother. Often it is the very things that make something great that can also be a liability. This yarn is no exception. It can unravel, even pull apart. If I felt it as firm as I like, it shows any flaws as bumps, and unfortunately I'm a flawed knitter. I will continue shopping, and learning, but I also will continue to use this yarn. I could do far worse. Thank you!

      Made a sweater for my adult son. Turned out beautiful but was a challenge for me because I became congested every time I knit on it. A consistent diameter, no thin spots. And strong for a single ply.

        Warm, thick yarn, great for mittens. I haven't tried felting it but looks like it would work well. Ive made several pairs of mittens which all turned out well-- usually need a bit more than one skein unless they're children's size.
