Weaving Project

Bought this yarn for weaving project (scarf). I would definitely not recommend this for weaving. It breaks constantly and sheds terribly. Wish I had not bought it.

        Comments about true Berkshire:

        Knitted a sort of "prayer shawl". For my sister. Used the Blue sky pattern for the Endless Wrap. 110 inches was a great deal of knitting but I did like the yarn. The color was richer than I anticipated. Great yardage for the price. Have not washed it but did block/steam it

          I make mostly hats with it. Love that it shows great pattern details (perfect for cables in my opinion) and it stretches nicely, which is good for hats of any sizes.

              I made a scarf with this yarn. It really was great for showing off the scarves pattern. My yarn was the royal blue and it was a really nice blue. Also the yarn seems extra rounded - kind of an unusual shape, and I really liked the effect of this.

                Comments about true Berkshire:

                Knitted a toy lion to felt in the washing machine. The yarn was great for this. One thing I would change is that I would put the toy in a garment bag before putting it into the washer. The felted fibers on the very top and bottom were not as thick as the rest of the toy.
