Made of recycled cotton fibers, Berroco Indigo is a soft, slightly tweedy yarn available in both lighthearted, happy brights and a gorgeous palette of blues. Indigo is a worsted weight yarn that's machine-washable; it provides excellent stitch definition, and is a great choice for cool garments with a lovely drape.

Berroco Indigo

Comments about BERROCO Indigo:

Indigo finishes into a nice fabric and is is easy to knit with.. But it has many flecks of other fibers, some of which I pulled out and it stretches. I wouldn't buy it again.

Very impressive yarn.

Comments about BERROCO Indigo:

I have really fallen in love with this yarn. I actually was gifted some a year ago and, while impressed by its recycled origins, thought it was rough textured. Finally, I've gotten around to using it to knit a Market Bag. I've been simply blown away by how soft the yarn has become as I work with it; it very much reminds me of a favorite pair of jeans and how soft they become. I cannot wait to use this yarn for more projects.

knits up beautifully

Comments about BERROCO Indigo:

Last summer, 2016, I knit the Penstemon sweater and the phlox shawl. Both were fun to knit, the yarn is easy to use, and the sweater is a perfect fit. The yarn has a good weight and drape, and the sweater hangs perfectly. I've worn both the sweater many times as it is just the right warmth for weather in the 60s and low 70s, or to cope with air conditioning. The shawl is beautiful and comfortable. I'm planning to make another sweater and the desert lily throw this summer.

Comments about BERROCO Indigo:

This yarn reminded of kite string when I was young. I have been knitting/crocheting for 50 years and ripped out multiple times before I had worked 10 rounds before I gave up.

Destroy the Yarn, Save the Garment

By 

from Madison, WI

Comments about BERROCO Indigo:

Here's how to deal with this yarn:

This yarn bleeds terribly. The hanks I prepped were black. Before even caking the yarn, I untwisted the hanks but didn't undo the ties. I tied three extra scrap-yarn ties to secure each opened hank circle to really secure them, then blasted the hell out of them with hot water (40 Celsius / 104 Fahrenheit) and regular laundry detergent. The wash water was pitch black opaque. I washed and drained the water about 15 times. I'm not kidding. It was still bleeding dye, but not as badly as before. Once the wash water was semi-clear (but still bleeding a bit of dye), I rinsed, and then put them in a 50/50 cool water/vinegar bath for 30 minutes. Then I rinsed in very cold water and the yarn didn't bleed after that. I am, however, fully aware that this yarn will still bleed if put back in hot water with laundry detergent. Just not as badly. So items knit with this yarn MUST be washed separately. After the big drowning of the yarn, I rolled it up in towels, set it out on my patio furniture to dry somewhat, then when slightly damp I threw it in the dryer on "Heavy" (HOT). This really got it dry.

How did the yarn hold up after all of that abuse?

Awesome! Shrinkage was moderate, but the yarn actually bulked out a bit. It went from DK weight to the actual worsted weight that it was advertised to be. It is still very strong, and was easy to swift and wind into cakes. There was no fluff and no fraying. Now that the yarn is shrunk and the dye is somewhat more fixed, I feel much more confident to knit items with it. It's important to get all this done before you knit a garment with it. I would use 1.5 times the yardage called for in patterns, since the yarn is now shrunk and its diameter is wider.

It is what it is

By 

from Michigan

Pros

  • Good Stitch Definition
  • Great Color
  • Meets Expectations

Cons

  • Untwists Easily

Best Uses

  • Casual Wear

Comments about BERROCO Indigo:

This yarn is described as containing recycled denim. That makes it a little heavy and casual looking. Plus the yarn unwinds easily (possibly due to the way I crochet, though). I'm using half-double crochet stitch with a 4.5 mm hook, making a sweater that I'll wear with jeans, and I think it will look great. As with all crochet, I'll need more yarn than if I were knitting. I'm also a little worried about how heavy the sweater will be, so will keep it relatively short and perhaps just have 3/4 length sleeves. The yarn color is a gorgeous dark blue-green, but it has been discontinued and I don't remember its name.

DK weight, not worsted

By 

from Chicagoland

Pros

  • Recycled

Cons

  • Feels Like String
  • Not Soft
  • Too Thin For Project

Best Uses

    Comments about BERROCO Indigo:

    I purchased this yarn to knit Prickly Poppy Berroco cardigan pattern. It's way too thin for this project. To get recommended gauge, I would have to use size 5 needles instead of 6 per instructions and 7 per the yarn label. This yarn looks and feels like string.
