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.

                Yarn was not well-spun, is coarse, and difficult to manage due to its poor construction. The only good about it was the color.

                    Comments about true Berkshire Bulky:

                    I have used this for felted projects for years. It works well. I have used close to 1000 of these skeins. The more recent skeins do not go as far as the older ones. I am consistently using more skeins per project than I used to. It is definitely the newer skeins as when I use the older ones I have I still use the smaller amount that I have used for years. I have weighed some new skeins and they only come to the stated 100 grams with the label on, if at all. It also seems there may be more joins with knots in each skein, though the jury is out on this as a definitive. Other than the size issue this is a good yarn for the price.

                      I won this kit-pattern(First Watch Pea Coat by Marie Greene) and yarn to make it. I am loving the pattern and the yarn. Even though the needle size is two sizes smaller than the recommended size, it is still easy to work. I would use this yarn again.

                            I made the poncho a bit too long as I measured it when flat, not taking the weight of the yarn into account. My son loved it. nice and warm and looks every bit as nice as an Icelandic type wool. nice color too.
