I too was hesitant to buy this as it was expensive and I didn't want it included in the UFO (unfinished object) pile that is ever growing in the corner of my closet. I bought it for the Gibson sweater after considering it for a long time. I am so glad that I did! This is like knitting up a cloud. Everyone who sees me working on this remarks about the softness. It does shed, but not too much to make it a misery to knit and wear. I also think that as it is washed, that might subside a little. It is bulky so the project is flying off the needles. I have this in weasel color- terrible name, but beautiful color (beige/gray/cream) . I see another Gibson in my future- maybe in harbor seal. Lovely pattern too!

I was disappointed that each skein of this yarn that I purchased had a knot in it to tie pieces together to complete the skein. Also, it's mostly even thickness to the yarn, but occasionally there's a really really thin part or a really really thick part, making lumps and bumps in the finished fabric.

Comments about Berroco Kodiak:

I was pleasantly surprised at the softness. Softer than I was expecting. And for a bulky yarn I found the yardage to be decent. I used five skeins to make a small woman's poncho and had about a skein and half leftover.

It's also extremely warm. Within seconds of placing it over my shoulders to check I was heated through. Would make a great blanket, scarf, cowl, or sweater yarn.

          Comments about Berroco Kodiak:

          This is a great yarn. I bought it along with a very similar but less expensive yarn (Grignasco Tikal) to make a cardigan featured in Vogue Knitting (Fall 2012, Pattern #13) and it knits up well, is super soft, and comes in beautiful colors. Compared to the other yarn, it sheds much, much less, and if I were to repeat the experience, I would do the whole project in Kodiak, despite the increased price.
          Note: one or two of the skeins were pretty irregular in thickness.

          Light, fluffy and warm, it's very easy to work with and a fast knit. The only drawback is that my lap is full of the shedding fibres.

          Comments about Berroco Kodiak:

          Service was, as always, flawless. I bought this yarn for a specific pattern that used this yarn. I most likely would not have otherwise. The hat turned out well I think. Would I think of this yarn first for other projects? No, I don't think so. It's a pretty yarn but can be a bit fussy to work with. I enjoyed it but now I'm over it. Unless I decide to make another hat! I would recommend this yarn for the project I just finished.

          Comments about Berroco Kodiak:

          I was reluctant at first to get this yarn because it looked rather flimsy and was expensive, but I was obsessed with the sweater - Gibson from the Norah Gaughan collection, Vol. 13. After trying a few other yarns, I finally broke down and bought this yarn and am I glad I did. The yarn is easy to work with and so soft. The Russian Join method works really well with this yarn.

            IT'S SO COLD THIS WINTER. SO I DECIDE TO KNIT A WARM BUT SOFT, LIGHT BIG SCARF FOR MY DAUGHTER. I'M GLAD THAT I FOUND A BEAUTIFUL PATTERN AND THE THIS YARN TO KNIT WITH. THE RESULT -IT'S LIKE A CLOUD AS MY DAUGHTER SAYS. SHE WEARS HER SCARF EVERY DAY. I'M GOING TO KNIT ONE FOR MYSELF ANDMY FRIEND AS MY NEXT PROJECT.

              This yarn is beautiful, soft, and retains a deep color. I'm making my niece a cardigan with a wide cable stitch and it is going very smoothly.
