Berroco Borealis

Berroco Borealis is a super cozy, ultra cuddly yarn featuring sophisticated color combinations in a vivid multicolored palette. Acrylic and wool combine to eliminate the itch factor and boost softness. Multiple colors are twisted together with black accents into a single thick ply with a fuzzy sheen. In a bulky weight, Borealis knits up quickly into brilliant projects with color that recalls the Northern Lights. Made in Italy.

This yarn is absolutely beautiful, and a pleasure to knit. My only complaint is the excessive shedding. I am knitting a shawl that I was planning to wear over black clothing, but the yarn sheds so many little fuzzy hairs that anything I wear with it will end up looking like the cat slept on it.

As lovely as this yarn is, I would never again use it to knit a garment that will be in contact with other clothing. Maybe a hat would be OK.

          It would be helpful if the yarn color matched the photo on the web. I ordered a blue with greens in it (according to the photo) and got a very purple skein.

            I am at the moment crocheting this yarn. It works up beautifully. I have not had the opportunity to wash it, but I am sure that it is a quality yarn and will be fine. I love the way it was dyed. It reminds me of batik fabric.

              I had one skein and could not find more anywhere- except this site. It was a bit pricey (for me) but so worth finding exactly what I needed.

              Outstanding.

              The yarn was a bit more wool-like than I expected, but that's really the only downside. The colors are pretty and it's easy to work with.
