    One of my favorite yarns but Berroco has decided to discontinue it. I've already made three garments using it and have stashed away a few more color ways for future projects. I hope they decide to bring it back.

      Comments about Berroco Versa:

      Great looking cotton ribbon yarn. As I worked it the observers loved the colors. I had two items made fro this
      It took more yarn than I thought it would for one item concerning me about the weight. Florida customers do not like heavy.
      At first I wasn't happy with "Pizzaz" Customer service was very helpful if I decided to return it.

          Comments about Berroco Versa:

          I loved the varigated color in this yarn. I had hoped to make a Spring cowl but after working with it I discovered it didn't drape as well as I had hoped. I decided to make a little 6x8 purse for my daughter for when she goes out at night with her friends. It is a sturdy yarn and when knit can be very dense. Perfect for a purse. It's also washable so if it gets dirty she can easily keep it clean. I've purchased some other colors in this yarn and will be making more purses.

          It knits up quickly, but is very difficult to sew - as in putting together a sweater. Love the colors.

            I needed a quick fall scarf for a trip and knitted it in four days with Versa that I saw in a shop. I am now on my 4th scarf for gifts because the yarn is so soft, colorful, and lightweight!

                The colors in Versa are beautiful and worked up nicely without color pooling. I made 3 bandana cowls as gifts in different colors and was generally happy with them. They worked up quickly and look nice but are not as soft as I had imagined they would be. I washed them in the washing machine and dried flat and they looked great but I wish they were softer.

                I love the colors in these yarns. I use this to make chunky scarves. A scarf crochets up quickly into a nice midweight scarf. I love the drape and texture. Always get compliments on the colors and look. Scarves a warm enough for cold weather but light enough to use as fashion accessories in warmer climates.

                Absolutely loved the colors in this yarn. Made a scarf for my sister for her birthday, and am pairing it up with Fisherman's wool for a cowl for my mom for her birthday.

                I would not say this is a bulky yarn, though. If anything, more of a worsted weight.

                I want more of this!!!
