I've made 2 sweaters from this line of yarn and they have both turned out beautifully: an intricate cable cardigan and a cropped tunic vest. Used needles size 5-7 which requires a longer time to complete garments but looks wonderful. Not for the knitter who wants to knit hastily on size 8 needles and above.

I purchased this yarn at a LYS in order to make a cardigan. The yarn was soft and despite the price I bought it. The yarn does not have an even texture and is quite thin in places. It is a bit thin for a worsted weight, the number of stitches per inch were spot on but the height of the rows came out short. The yarn has a lot of mohair & angora (35% total) which I believe may compromise the integrity of the yarn's strength. The yarn will break with the slightest of tension. I don't recommend for use with a pattern with cables. You can't pull the stitches tight enough to prevent gapping holes without the yarn breaking. I think this yarn is best suited for small projects, but definitely not a sweater.

Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed:

This yarn is an old friend. Ive knit button cowls for a number of friends in a variety of colors and always told myself I would try the red someday. Then it went on sale and I took that as a message. Blackstone Tweed is easy to knit and warm and nice once it is made into a scarf or cowl. I love it.

      Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed:

      I am using this to make the berroco mums round afghan pattern. What a surprise! It is much more soft and drapey than I expected. The vibrant color works well with the lacey pattern. The pattern suggests using this particular yarn, but I swatched a lot of different types of yarn before I settled on the suggested yarn. It really does work best with oversized open lace pattern. A more stiff or structured yarn kills the design.

            Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed:

            I do not like the texture of this yarn. It is not soft at all, though it feels 'cushy' on the ball. I swatched up a sample and there is no 'cushiness' at all. I bought this yarn for a coat, so hopefully it will work for that since it won't be against my skin. I love the cranberry color though, just wish it was softer.

            Soft, unusual for a tweed yarn. Good stitch definition.

            Comments about Berroco Blackstone Tweed:

            Since this yarn has great stitch definition, it works well for arans and other textured patterns. Great color range. Can break easily if gentle hand not used. End product is warm and cosy, just what you want for fall and winter clothing and accessories. Garments do not feel heavy, just luxuriously warm.

                  I'm using this yarn to make a cable knit shrug. I love the feel and casual look of the piece. The yarn is great to work with but it's not as soft as I thought it was going to feel. That said, I highly recommend this yarn and am considering it for another project I have in the wings.

                    This was the second time I ordered from Webs, and both times I was amazed how quickly my order was delivered. It was just what I ordered too. The ladies I knit with recommended you when I was running out of yarn for an almost completed project and they were right. I would not hesitate to order yarn from your company again. Thank you.
