This yarn is so beautiful and soft to the touch. Prior to the first project that I made with the Berroco Vintage, (a blanket for my Mom for Christmas using Tide Pool and Breezeway) I had been using yarn from a craft store, but I don't think I'll ever go back. It knits up quickly, and the stitch definition is beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft it was when it knitted up, and while I used it to make a blanket, as previously noted, I will also be using the remaining yarn to make a pair of mittens for myself. It was also discountable, so this beautiful yarn was comparable in cost to the yarn I was buying in craft stores.

The one thing I would say negatively about the yarn was that in some cases there was less yardage in the Tide Pool color than the Breezeway, but not enough of a difference that it affected the project that I was making.

I usually don't purchase synthetic fibers or synthetic blends. BUT i had a commissioned request for a specific color and easy care. So i purchased this yarn. It's fine, it's soft and good yardage, and doesn't seem like a substandard fiber. However, it was the same price, if not more expensive than some of the 100% wool yarns on here... like cascade. I was ok with a close color because i know that depending on the monitor a color can look slightly different, but unfortunately the color was way off from the picture and considerably darker and more blue. Even though the color is beautiful in it's own right, it was far from the picture. I wasn't able to use it for the project, and ended up buying another yarn. So, be wary of the pictures and expect darker, and it's a nice wool blend. So if you want a quality blend, this is a good yarn.... but even so, in my opinion it's expensive for what it is.

      I am knitting my very first sweater for my boyfriend. This yarn is a pleasure to work with. It doesn't snag and knits easily.

      My only feedback on delivery would apply to all products I've purchased here ... I wish they would ship faster. I guess Amazon has spoiled me.

        Loved this yarn. Was very easy to work with and I love all the different colors offered. The yarn was used for a cabled beanie and it showed the stitches beautifully. I'm so ready to order one in every color.

            I sent it back, but it almost killed me to do so. It was soft and beautiful but it was the wrong color. My error. I needed red and ruby was more of a berry or burgundy color.

            I an using this for two color tunisian in the round. I needed to double up for the main color and use one strand for the return pass color, to get a good weight for a hat.

              Overall, I like this yarn. It was the first time using a synthetic, so I didn't realize when I purchased it that it would have more stretch to it than the other cotton/wool-blend yarn I am using it with to make a cowl - my error. There's one section where both yarns are interwoven that could be better because of that fact, but the areas that only use the Berroco yarn are quite beautiful. And realistically, I'm the only person who will notice once the cowl is completed and I start wearing it. I would use this yarn again but next time may stick to one yarn at a time. Also, the color crimson is rich, deep and beautiful. It's also super soft.

                Colors are beautiful, and yarn is soft and nice to work with. I normally cast on 96 stitches on size 6 needles for and adult hat, with Vintage worsted, the hat was toddler size. I doubled the yarn, and cast on 64 for one hat and 72 for another on size 8, for adult hats that turned out perfect.

                I purchased this yarn for a baby blanket. It has a nice weight and feel to it and is very soft. I found it to pill a bit and be somewhat splitty. Overall, however, a good mix of price and quality.
