This yarn is so beautiful and soft to the touch. Prior to the first project that I made with the Berroco Vintage, (a blanket for my Mom for Christmas using Tide Pool and Breezeway) I had been using yarn from a craft store, but I don't think I'll ever go back. It knits up quickly, and the stitch definition is beautiful. I was pleasantly surprised at how soft it was when it knitted up, and while I used it to make a blanket, as previously noted, I will also be using the remaining yarn to make a pair of mittens for myself. It was also discountable, so this beautiful yarn was comparable in cost to the yarn I was buying in craft stores.

The one thing I would say negatively about the yarn was that in some cases there was less yardage in the Tide Pool color than the Breezeway, but not enough of a difference that it affected the project that I was making.

I usually don't purchase synthetic fibers or synthetic blends. BUT i had a commissioned request for a specific color and easy care. So i purchased this yarn. It's fine, it's soft and good yardage, and doesn't seem like a substandard fiber. However, it was the same price, if not more expensive than some of the 100% wool yarns on here... like cascade. I was ok with a close color because i know that depending on the monitor a color can look slightly different, but unfortunately the color was way off from the picture and considerably darker and more blue. Even though the color is beautiful in it's own right, it was far from the picture. I wasn't able to use it for the project, and ended up buying another yarn. So, be wary of the pictures and expect darker, and it's a nice wool blend. So if you want a quality blend, this is a good yarn.... but even so, in my opinion it's expensive for what it is.

        This is my go-to workhorse yarn! There are gorgeous colors to choose from, It's crazy durable for baby and men's knits that require frequent laundering. It has a beautiful feel and stitch definition. It's priced reasonably and has a great feel when knitting with it.

        Comments about Berroco Vintage:

        It is being knitted with 2 strands together and is a perfect tension for a cables/fans throw. The different dye lots all matched as I had some older yarn bought locally before I bought the rest I needed from your "web" sight. Great product.

        All good

        Things okay: It is soft, pretty colors.

        Not sooo good; i.e., very, very Bad things: It is splitty, tangles very easily, unwinds, and Oh did I mention SPLITTY!

        This is sooooo not worth the money! I wouldn't even recommend it to my Not-So-BFF

            The blue moon colorway is gorgeous with blues and purples. I'm using it with the Berroco Eula (free pattern) short sleeve sweater. So far, I've found one knot in one skein. Yardage is great. There have been no pills or shedding in the finished product.

                        I am knitting with a double strand of yarn- making an afghan on size 15 needles. The yarn works very well. I have had to rip out the same section several times and find the yarn unaffected by that.
