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.

      Comments about true Berkshire Bulky:

      I bought this yarn to make a sweater and it didn't end up working out. The gauge wasn't right on my needles and the colors didn't go together the way I thought. However I'm still giving this yarn 5 stars because I ended up using it for a sweater for my friend and it knitted up so quickly, it was beautiful and she loved it. I would recommend this for giving someone a special gift because it's a luxury alpaca fiber but it knits up quickly and is an awesome price.

              This yarn is very soft and knits like a dream! I am knitting a chunky knit blanket and everything about this yarn fits the bill: it's soft and easy to knit, the slightly uneven thickness creates a wonderful texture and the stitch definition is lovely. I will be making more than one chunky knit blanket with this lovely yarn!

                    I knitted 2 "Last Minute Hats" holding two different color strands of Berkshire bulky yarn. The hats will be very warm, yet soft and the yarn made nice pom poms.

                      The color names didn't describe accurately so I returned the original order. Webs replaced them quickly, with better choice. after felting the hat, I had to trim all the shaggy strands by hand.
