I'm knitting a multicolor, temperature scarf for a friend who just got her meteorology degree and this yarn is perfect for it. I didn't want primary colors, and the variety this yarn offers works great. The colors are unique but cohesive for the project. Plus the yarn is a dream to work with, smooth and soft and doesn't unravel or snag.

I made the Bas-Relief Blanket using this yarn, which is what is called for in the pattern. It is full of pills and I have yarn dust bunnies all over the house. Very disappointed. I am embarrassed to tell people I made the blanket.

Not what expected, yet pleasantly suprised

By Kylie

from Burlington, Vermont

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Dyed Evenly
  • Nice Texture
  • Soft

Cons

  • Twists Up

Best Uses

  • Hats

Comments about true Berkshire Bulky:

The balls of yarn were definitely smaller than I expected, but the quality of the yarn is excellent!!! It knits very tight and made an excellent hat. The yarn does start to twist around itself however which is a bit annoying, but it doesn't hinder the knitting at all. The colors are beautiful and vibrant and the yarn is so soft and strong.

    This is an excellent alternative to Rowan Polar yarn (and so much less expensive)! I prefer this to the Rowan, personally, and love the way it handles! Excellent bulky yarn!

    Bulky with a great drape

    By lifelong knitter

    from Pleasantville, NY

    Pros

    • Knits Quickly
    • Nice Texture

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Sweaters

      Comments about true Berkshire Bulky:

      I made a boy's sweater out of this yarn, and it will act more like a fall jacket than a coat. With a lot of positive ease in the sweater, it has a great drape for its bulk. It also knits up very quickly, at 3 stitches to the inch!

      My only wish is that it would be a little softer. Nevertheless, I definitely recommend this yarn for making heavy sweaters.

      Would love for you to carry more bulky/craft 100% wool yarns for rug hooking/punching. Would also love if your search engine was a bit more accurate and precise in the output.

      I made a shawl collar vest with this yarn. It knit up beautifully. While the yarn sheds a wee bit (a side effect of alpaca yarn) in general it was awesome to knit with. I love my vest!

        Comments about true Berkshire Bulky:

        the basket ended up being taller than I expected since it didn't felt down as much as I thought. However, I had enough extra yarn to make another basket half as tall... just what I expected.

          Comments about true Berkshire Bulky:

          My daughter and I have purchased this yarn in several colors,
          We love it! It surpassed our expectations!! We immediately decided
          this will not be our last time purchasing it!!! The thickness is full and
          consistent, very soft, great color! We have done some felting,
          and knitting.

          Best Uses

          • Felting

          Comments about true Berkshire Bulky:

          I love working with natural animal fibers, especially wool for felting and designing gifts for others. This yarn is really gorgeous in color, very rich, and in touch, not much could be softer and smoother. Often it is the very things that make something great that can also be a liability. This yarn is no exception. It can unravel, even pull apart. If I felt it as firm as I like, it shows any flaws as bumps, and unfortunately I'm a flawed knitter. I will continue shopping, and learning, but I also will continue to use this yarn. I could do far worse. Thank you!

          Made a sweater for my adult son. Turned out beautiful but was a challenge for me because I became congested every time I knit on it. A consistent diameter, no thin spots. And strong for a single ply.
