I bought two contrasting Berroco skeins of Vintage DK yarn for "Looking for Spring", a cute free stranded hat pattern on Ravelry.

This yarn was perfect for the project. I'm an experienced knitter, but a novice at stranded knitting. The finished project produced very even stitches and the yarn was lovely to work with. A huge bonus I wasn't expecting was seeing the yarn bloom with a slight halo, after soaking and blocking the hat.

I love Berroco products; you can't go wrong with them.

I'm using this yarn to make a delicate, lace-patterned scarf for my mother's 60th birthday. It's lovely, the yarn itself is beautiful and the scarf is coming along nicely, and it looks good in the lace pattern, showing off the details of the pattern. My only concern about it is that I'm afraid it's going to be a little scratchy, and on the delicate skin of the neck I feel like that's a pretty big deal.

      Love all of the Vintage yarn weights. The yarn washes and drys nicely. The yarn actually softens up with washing.

        I am quickly finding that this is becoming one of my favorite sweater yarns. It has a nice softness and good texture for sweater knitting. It's easy to care for and comes in great colours.

              I recommend using blunt needles to knit with to avoid splitting. Great to use otherwise and very soft.

                This was bought for a child's intarsia skeleton pattern. I figured, two colors-- how hard can it be? 11 bobbins later, I know two things: one, skeletons are super curvy; and two, I'd have gone insane long ago without this yarn. It's absolutely uniform in both color and thickness, it's soft and pleasant in my hands, not at all splitty, and tolerant of being tinked and repaired. This is a fabulous yarn for kids' sweaters and nice to handle as well.

                    I was a little disappointed with this yarn. It's kind of thin and slippery. Doesn't stretch easily so it's a little difficult for me to knit with. I didn't think the colors were true to the photo of the hat I was planning on making. Sorry about the negative review but I wouldn't order it again

                      This is the first time I've used Berroco Vintage DK yarn. Bought it to used for a hooded cowl done with Fair Isle patterns knit into it. It is an excellent yarn; knits up fast, and has a beautiful texture and feel to it. I can't find anything to complain about. It's pure pleasure to knit with. I will definitely buy this yarn again and again.
