Berroco yarns are some of our standbys, from the smooth Modern Cotton to the durable Ultra Wool line to the soft and fuzzy Ultra Alpaca line. We order and reorder these yarns throughout the year, but last week’s restock was particularly sizable.
Berroco Modern Cotton is an economical, machine-washable blend of cotton and rayon in that versatile gauge, worsted weight. It’s perfect for warm-weather knit and crochet projects, or year-round for those allergic to wool, and seems especially popular for blanket making.
Berroco Ultra Wool is a worsted weight superwash wool, one of the few that suggests “tumble dry low” rather than “lay flat to dry.” That makes it a truly easy-care yarn, perfect for baby and children’s garments, blankets, and everday accessories. It also comes in DK weight and fingering weight gauges.
We were especially low on Berroco Ultra Alpaca Chunky, a bulky weight blend of wool and alpaca, and are pleased to have a full cubby again. This yarn has been popular for Kate Davies’ “Carbeth” and cocoknits’ “Emma,” and one knitter we know, Michele, used it to make this incredible “#21 Star Sweater.”
