This yarn is beyond soft. It's supposed to be 4.25 stitches to the inch on an 8 US, but I got just over 4.5 in my swatch. This means that in addition to all the beautiful patterns that were made specifically for this yarn (Berroco Book #303 Remix) I can use any of the patterns that were made for Blackstone Tweed, which includes Book #288 and several in the new Berroco Book #298!
And the fact that it's soft, tweedy (another hot thing for fall) and works with so many great Berroco patterns isn't all... It's got wonderful yardage (216yards!!) for just $10.
Oh... and it's machine washable!
