          Comments about Berroco Lago:

          This is a lovely textural yarn with its thick/thin nature. It has wonderful drape and sheen. I made the Caloosa sweater and have had many compliments on it. I ordered more yarn to make another for a gift. While the cowl does stretch a bit with long wear, it recovers well when washed. The sweater is a good traveler.

          This yarn is a bit slippery and can split, but is well worth the bit of special care needed while knitting.

          Fun Summer yarn

              Because of the material used this yarn is a little stiff, but it produces a beautiful summer fabric, especially when knit with a larger needle. I'm making the scoop-back tank out of the summer issue of KnitScene for my teen. A beachy-look that should wear well.

              Yarn is a lovely color (papaya) and makes a nice summer scarf. I would probably not use this yarn for anything that would get a lot of wear and tear (hats, sweaters).

                I am making a spring sweater with Berrocco Lago Pale Hibiscus...I love the yarn...it is so elegant! It has a loose weave and is easy to use. It is a bit hard to tell the knits from the purls, though, because it is rather nubby. But, all in all, just gorgeous. I needed more yarn and thank heavens, I found it here!

                  I made a beautiful summer scarf using two colorways of Lago. It knit up quickly and easily. I probably would not use it for intricate lacework, and since I didn't do a simple stockinette, I cant attest to how it would look. But for my purposes, it was perfect.

                  I made the 2-way shawl as pictured in your magazine and found that a smaller needle size worked better than the recommended size. It stretches very easily because the slubs are a little difficult to keep to gauge. Love the feel and look.

                    The yarn looks great, and feels really soft...the shrug came out beautiful...but it just keeps getting bigger everytime I wear it...the sleeves literally lengthen 5 inches in one wearing! So, I love the shrug, I just keep pushing up my sleeves all day long!
