      Comments about BERROCO Summer Silk:

      I am going to make a shawl out of this yarn. It is my knitting workshop class project for the fall. This should knit up a warm and wonderful shawl. I am impressed with the quality of this yarn.

      weak breakable unstable yqrn

      Pros

      • soft

      Cons

      • constantly having to cut off weak one ply areas

        Comments about BERROCO Summer Silk:

        I looked forward to using this yarn but am now wondering if the project will hold up. Lots of weak areas in the yarn promising to break and ruin the shawl. I bought an extra ball but doubt I will have enough. I have worked with silk before but didn't experience such unstable yarn. Too expensive to have these problems. I am sorry I bought the yarn.

        Pretty but with problems

        By 

        from Des Moines, IA

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about BERROCO Summer Silk:

        I started casting on and 2 yards in the chainette outside had a break. I ripped it and looked for the place. It was VERY hard to find when relaxed. I finally found it and cut off up to there, but as I am knitting, there have been 7 or 8 places like this so far (half way through the ball). I am hoping the other balls are better, but this is a sweater and I need it all. They are too often to keep cutting them out, and I'm afraid that these places are going to be weak. I'm very disappointed in this quality issue. Especially since it feels and looks so great!

        By 

        from Northern Virginia

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • good DK substitute for people sensitive to wool
        • hand washable
        • knits into really soft feel

        Cons

        • suspect it will not be very hard wearing

        Best Uses

        • almost anyhting calling for this weight yarn
        • baby blanket
        • scarf
        • sweater

        Comments about BERROCO Summer Silk:

        Chosen because it has no wool but has a slight fuzziness making it softer and less sporty than most cotton yarn. Easy to knit with. Wish they offered more color options.

        Pros

        • Very Soft, lovely to work with.

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about BERROCO Summer Silk:

            The color was not even close to that pictured. I expected a very pale blue but it was more of a steel. It is still lovely and is working up nicely. Looking forward to wearing this lovely lacy sweater.

              Anxious to finish the sweater I'm making with Berroco Summer Silk. It's just so soft and light weight and the pattern I chose looks like a sweatshirt. If it fits like one, I'll probably make more in other colors!
