Overall Vintage Chunky Rating: 4.6 out of 5 (4.6 based on 21 reviews)

So-so 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
It knits up quick and is really soft and cozy feeling. Plus the sweater keeps me quite warm. I was hoping for a dark gray, but the color is more of a medium gray. That's not the reason why this yarn didn't get more stars out of me though. When I washed it, it fuzzed and will likely pill once I wash it again, which makes me sad since I wanted low maintenance machine washable. Add the fuzzing to the medium gray color and it looked kind of like a bumming around, worn down old sweater instead of a fashionable, cool item I just finished making. I don't know if I will pick this yarn again if I need chunky yarn for a sweater. And this might not bother others, but the yarn squeaked on the metal parts of my knitting needles (makes me react the way some people do to nails scratching down chalkboard).

Warm, cozy and easy to care for, Berroco does it again with this chunky-weight version of their beloved vintage yarn. I'll use it again and again.

This will be my go-to yarn. 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I like the blends of yarns, and very soft. This will be my go-to yarn for blankets now.

Really like the blend. It knit up beautifully and the color was deep. The sweater about a 2T ended up being heavy--this might be a concern with larger projects, but I think it'd make a great blanket.

Acrylic...really?!? 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
It is very hard for me to believe that this is an acrylic blend yarn. When I first saw and touched it I thought it was 100% wool! Very soft, fun to knit and frogs well. I hope it washes well. I'd it does that would make it a definite fav yarn for me!
