Buyer Beware

By 

from Southern NH

Pros

  • Lovely colors and texture

Cons

  • Horrible To Try And Wind

Best Uses

  • None

Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

Only one star for this one, because of the color and texture in the skein. I planned to use the weft in a scarf made with a cotton linen warp for texture. I tried using a simple (Amish) yarn swift and winding a ball by hand, but the skein itself was a mess or tangles and knots. This seems to be a pattern with many of the Berroco novelty yarns. I went to plan B and used another yarn, maybe on a snowy winter day I will tackle the other two skeins. I can't recommend unless you really enjoy unraveling a rats nest.

A good "mixer" yarn

By 

from Pasadena, CA

Pros

  • Interesting Dimension

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Scarfs
    • Shawls
    • Sweaters
    • Tops

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

    I like this string yarn because it provides textural dimension to the scarf I'm knitting. I have learned with winding similar yarn/string composed of different textures and sizes that it's best to not use a swift. Because of the differences in texture, slipperiness, and width, I find using the swift contributes to the yarn compressing on itself where the light weight threads tangle around the heavier threads. I now hang the yarn on an over-the-door hook and wind by hand--simple and almost no tangles. I use the swift for yarn of similar consistency.

    True to its Name

    By 

    from Vallejo, CA

    Pros

    • Blends well
    • Luscious color
    • Strong Warp Yarn
    • Texture
    • Variety

    Cons

    • Slippery

    Best Uses

    • Weaving

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

    Just as the name states, I used this yarn as a mixer to add texture and color accent to a mixed-fiber warp on a rigid heddle loom. It is surprisingly strong and, though it twists when it is being warped, it beats flat. I mixed it randomly with a soft alpaca yarn. The thick and thins, mattes and shiny sections added interesting elements to my finished scarf without having to add lots of different yarns to the warp to get the same effect. I'm buying more to have on hand.

    Lovely yarn

    By 

    from Knoxville, TN

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

    Just had to leave a review as I'm working with this yarn right now and enjoying it immensely. I've had no problem at all winding it into skeins. It is a slippery yarn and should not, by any means, be pulled from the center of the ball, but if it's pulled from the outside, it behaves well.

    The fabric this yarn creates is marvelous and artsy. Simple stockinette is best with this as it just showcases the yarn.

    I like it & just bought 10 more skeins

    By 

    from metro Chicago IL

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

    I like this yarn. I had no problem manually winding it into a ball and I like the variegation in thickness and sheen. It knits up nicely into an airy, rather elegant looking cardigan-vest which will look great as a summer cover-up. Just bought another color for a new project.

    Berrocco mixer yarn

    By 

    from Portland, OR

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

    This follows up my 3/11 review. I started knitting a scarf and am having no trouble knitting with this yarn. It is turning out beautifully (because of the yarn, not my knitting)! I am considering making a cowl, instead of the scarf, since I may not have enough yarn for the scarf.

    Don't Consider using this yarn

    By 

    from Raleigh, NC

    Pros

    • Pretty

    Cons

    • Hard to work with
    • Never Use Again
    • Tangles
    • Very frustrating

    Best Uses

    • Very Simple Patterns

    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

    I purchased this yarn for a project, but when I received it and got a look at it - it would not work. So I used a very simple pattern (stockinette stitch) and still had a lot of problems. Would not recommend any use for this yarn.

    Berroco Mixer yarn

    By 

    from Portland, OR

    Pros

    • Easy To Wind By Hand

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

        I almost did not buy this yarn since the one comment was so negative (difficulty winding on a swift). However, I decided to try it since I usually wind my yarn by hand. I had no trouble winding it and am looking forward to starting a project with it. I'll let you know whether it is nice to use. The yarn is very beautiful and I love the blue shades.

        Terribly disappointed

        By 

        from Fort Lauderdale, FL

        Pros

        • Color
        • Color is beautiful

        Cons

        • Winding

        Best Uses

          Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Mixer:

          I purchased two skeins of the shades of grey color. Just beautiful. That earned the one star I gave this yarn. However, it was impossible to wind. My knitting circle ladies tried to help me but it was completely tangled. The yarn from the first skein had to be cut up into separate balls. I couldn't even get the second skein on the swift because it was too tangled in the wrapper. I am terribly disappointed. Also, the thick and thin varying textures are very interesting and pretty, but the thin parts are more like thread than yarn. I threw the whole thing in the trash. Life is too short for this stuff. On to my next project. Hope you have better luck than I did.
