Weaving Project

Bought this yarn for weaving project (scarf). I would definitely not recommend this for weaving. It breaks constantly and sheds terribly. Wish I had not bought it.

        I'm working currently on a cowl and this yarn is a pleasure. It has beautiful stitch definition, saturated colors and the wool has a soft hand. This would be for anything where you'd like sturdy, warmth with your project.

          Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire:

          Very sturdy yarn that is easy to knit and felt. Holds its shape well and it's fibers are consistent which is rare in a single ply yarn. Great winter yarn as it is a bit heavier than a worsted weight yarn and is very warm. Good selection of colors.

            I would include a photo but the hat is in constant use. I made it for my son and his girlfriend hasn't taken it off yet. Perfect for winter, super soft and warm. The best part: knitting this yarn filled me with joy. I had just knit an inferior wool from the chain store. This product glided through my fingers and felt so good.

            Yarn is very soft and colors are lovely. Can't wait to work with it once the skein of cream arrives.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Delivery service good. Still waiting for one backordered skein of cream color. Have not heard anything about this since before balance of my order was shipped.

              Beautiful yarn but the color green I ordered was a bit brighter than I had thought, and the yarn itself is really between worsted and bulky. Too bulky for the sweater I wanted to knit, so I returned it. I'd buy it again (in a different color!) if I wanted a bulkier yarn for another project.

                Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire:

                I really like this yarn so far. It comes in so many colors, I think it'll be perfect for intarsia knitting. I used a size 8 needle for my swatch and it made a soft yet substantial fabric.
                A word of warning-- This is a bit thicker than most "worsted" weight yarn I've experienced, although it is not quite as thick as "bulky" weight yarn. Be mindful of that when choosing this yarn for patterns calling for worsted weight, and make sure you make up a nice sized gauge swatch ahead of time.
                However, all in all I am excited to work with this more.
