    Berroco Comfort

    Comfort is the word for this yarn. Comfort is a soft blend of acrylic and fine nylon that makes for a beautifully draped garment with memory. No stretching out or bagginess will mar your detailed stitchery, shown to best advantage with this smooth, lofty fiber. And the best part? Machine wash and dry, and a huge array of colors. Made in Turkey.

    I've made several afghans with this yarn. It doesn't pill which I really appreciate. I've worked cables in it and have had no problem. Every mommy appreciates how soft the baby afghans are and how well they hold up.

    This yarn has very little stretch and after trying several different cast on methods I decided not to make a sweater with it. It also had many little tufts of white yarn that didn't belong in the blue/green varigated yarn I purchased. When I tried to remove them, the yarn separated and couldn't be twisted back to the original shape. There were also several knots in the skein I tried to work with. The colors are beautiful and I am disappointed that it wouldn't work out for my project but the unopened skeins are going back.

    Comments about Berroco Comfort:

    The yarn is amazingly soft. It will be perfect for a chemo hat. However, it is not a good yarn for crocheting. It has too many plies that constantly get caught by the hook. It might work better as a knitting yarn. I will finish crocheting this hat and then give another color a try with knitting.

        Comments about Berroco Comfort:

        I had used this yarn to knit baby hats. When I wanted to make a blanket for an expected child, I used this yarn. It is so easy to knit and makes a wonderfully soft fabric with a nice drape. Would recommend washing in machine on gentle cycle, then doing a regular last spin to get the remaining water out. Dry in dryer.

              Comments about Berroco Comfort:

              I love having the option to use a really fine nylon and acrylic yarn to make projects for my wool sensitive daughter. This acrylic is not like acrylic at all! It has the feel of a silky cotton and it is a pleasure to knit with compared to the usual acrylic yarns available. I always buy the Borroco Comfort yarn when I am wanting a wool substitute. This yarn is high quality and so soft!

              I use this yarn for every baby blanket I make. The new moms are SO appreciative that it's a machine washable blanket. For being machine washable I think it's very soft. I've made over 7 of the Dodo pattern blanket and am starting on numbers 8 and 9 now with this order. Very fast shipping and great price on WEBS.

                  Comments about Berroco Comfort:

                  I've used this yarn frequently, and I really love it. it is soft and machine washable and makes a lovely fabric. Some skeins have several knots, which is annoying, I ordered this same yarn before and loved it, but this time it was a different dye lot and a totally different color. I had to compare labels to make sure it was what I had ordered. It was, the difference was in the dye lots. I'm not sure what I'll do with it, as it's not what I wanted at all. To be clear: the yarn is great, the color change, not so much.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Delivery was very prompt, the mailing bag was overstuffed and a bit chewed up, but the yarn was fine.
