      Comments about Berroco Vintage DK:

      Colors were great and it was easy to work with.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I ordered 8 hanks in a variety of colors. One hank came broken--several strands were cut making it difficult to wind and use. I contacted customer service and was assured I would receive a replacement hank. 2 weeks later, I was still waiting for my replacement. I phoned customer service and they said they didn't know what happened to my first one but they would send me another. I had to put my project on hold. The first replacement hank did arrive-2 days after I placed the second call. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to get the other replacement.

              Comments about Berroco Vintage DK:

              I have made multiple sweaters for my kids and gifts for other kids with this yarn. The yarn is very soft, knits up quickly, no frustrating splitting or snagging while knitting. I have never run into a knot in a ball, I have used at least 20 different balls in various projects. I love the color choices available and have done nice color work with this yarn as well. Also love the wash and dry especially for kids items, and the yarn holds up well.

              The one and only thing is the yarn does shed and pill up, but a small amount of time to maintain and remove pills is worth it to me with all the other positives.

                I used this for a sweater and is it so lovely.
                I had two dye lots, (my fault), and used the every other row with two skeins method and it blended beautifully.
