      Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky 250 Gram Hanks:

      Love, love, love this yarn, but HATE the short skeins. I used to purchase this in the 250g/272 yard skeins, but now all that is available are the 100g/92 yard skeins. Worse than useless for most of my projects.

      The good news is that this yarn dyes beautifully, and though I have several dyeing projects that had unexpected results, I have never been disappointed in the final product. This yarn knits up beautifully, and evenly. As with most wool yarns [that aren't superwash] one must take some care not to felt the yarn unintentionally, though it will stand up to a reasonable amount of handling during the dyeing process without significant felting.

      This has been my go to yarn for dyeing projects in the past, and fortunately I had stockpiled quite a bit, but used my last two skeins today, and when I came back to reorder I found that I can no longer purchase the larger skeins - frustrating!!! If I could still order the 250g skeins this would be a 5 star product, but offering short skeins that will require several joins in all my projects makes this product a loser. The only thing that keeps me from giving it a 1 star review is my past pleasure working with the larger skeins. Ironically, at the top of the page I am leaving this review is an ad for the 250g skeins with a link that directs me to the 100g skeins. I was so excited to see the link i followed it and almost ordered 20 more skeins before I realized that what I was ordering was the 92 yard skeins. Way to add insult to injury!!!
