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.

This yarn and I did not get along. Usually I don't mind yarn other people call too splitty, but while I was making increases, or even knitting straight, Vintage split and I had to carefully watch every stitch. I went through every type of needle I had to try to make this yarn happy.

Not for crochet

By Sil

Comments about Berroco Vintage:

I ordered this yarn because of the good reviews. Sadly, I guess the reviews were only done by knitters. It was horrible to crochet with, splitting like crazy. I returned all the yarn that was returnable.

      Comments about Berroco Vintage:

      I really enjoyed working with this yarn. The washable 40%wool blend makes a toasty warm afghan. The colors on webs internet site are slightly off and would recommend anyone go to berroco's web site to see the correct colors before ordering. Webs site makes the colors look lighter than they are in real life.

                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.
