Berocco's Vintage Chunky is great if you want a soft, machine-washable yarn that is quick-knitting. It is extremely evenly dyed and gauged (so much so that it could be VERY boring to knit a simple pattern).

Because it is soft, washable, affordable and warm, it's my favorite yarn for sweaters for my kids.

Careful knitting is required because every stitch shows in such a bulky, solid-colored yarn. A few of the skeins had weak sections of yarn that I do not typically see in commercial yarn, and which required me to undo partial rows. The yarn does not have a soft feel, although washing helps a bit. The heather colors (I bought dark gray) seemed courser than the solid colors. I made a cardigan, which is rather heavy but nice, as well as a zip-front vest. Both were quick to complete because of the bulky weight.. Although I usually have to use smaller needles to achieve the correct gauge, I actually had to go up a size for this yarn.

Very nice for being wool/acrylic blend

  • Knits Quickly
  • Machine Washable
  • Soft

Cons

  • Snags

Best Uses

  • Sweaters

Comments about Berroco Vintage Chunky:

The splitting and snagging of this yarn is the biggest problem, in my view, but I want a machine washable sweater to give my guy for Christmas.

I will buy it again, because it may just be an issue with my pattern and needles. I am knitting on a smaller needle to get the correct gauge.

All things said and done, it's a very nice yarn for the price.

    Comments about Berroco Vintage Chunky:

    I bought this to crochet an afghan and started it with hook suggested and found out that is not as described, more like thin worsted weight...too bad I bought enough for and afghan and cannot use or return...not soft either.
    I do adore the colors so maybe I an use for something someday

        If you watch the show Outlander and are attempting to duplicate the Claire Cowl, this a my go to yarn for making that project. I knit with two strands together. Love this yarn.

              I bought this yarn in 6 colors, to make a boldly-striped poncho. It was a pleasure to knit with, and the poncho fabric is lovely. The colors are great, and I had lots of fun using this yarn. I'm sure I'll buy more in the future. Highly recommnded.

                  This yarn is soft and stretchy. I am making a baby blanket and used a smaller needle size to keep the size and stretch under control.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  When I found this yarn on yarn.com I was thrilled! I ordered enough to finish a baby blanket. At the time I knew I wouldn't get the same dye lot, but I listed it anyway. To my amazement I received my yarn in THE SAME DYE LOT! I was so excited my daughter thought I was going to pass out, awesome!
                  Thank you so much<3
