I'm knitting a multicolor, temperature scarf for a friend who just got her meteorology degree and this yarn is perfect for it. I didn't want primary colors, and the variety this yarn offers works great. The colors are unique but cohesive for the project. Plus the yarn is a dream to work with, smooth and soft and doesn't unravel or snag.

I made the Bas-Relief Blanket using this yarn, which is what is called for in the pattern. It is full of pills and I have yarn dust bunnies all over the house. Very disappointed. I am embarrassed to tell people I made the blanket.

          I used this yarn to make a hat for a granddaughter. I got so many requests from other family members I made seven hats altogether! Everyone loves the hats and say they are very warm. This yarn is very nice to work with.

            Comments about Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky:

            I used this yarn for the last of a series of no-pattern hats for my freezing sister, who likes pastels. I don't really like single-ply yarns, but this one is a winner. The softness of the wool/alpaca blend cancels out the bulkiness to some degree, so you get some drape, and the knitting is easy, even at a relatively tight gauge. It comes in pink.

                I used this 0product to knit a hat (Last Minute Hat #580) to knit a hat for my granddaughter who attends college in a very cold area. My daughter then requested on to wear while walking her dog. Then my grandson wanted one so that is the third one I made. I have since made 2 more for a daughter & and another granddaughter. I am now knitting yet another of those hats for another daughter. I love knitting with the Berkshire Bulky It's easy to use and so very soft and the hats I have made are very warm. I will also try the Berkshire worsted soon because I hope it will be just a nice to work with.

                  This was the recommended yarn for a pattern from Baby Cocktails, and probably the first time I have ever used the actual recommended yarn for a project. So glad I did! This has knit up quickly and not a single problem issue with the yarn. The color is deeply saturated and no knots!!! This is going to be a nice soft squishy sweater! I would recommend this yarn for certain.
