Berroco's Ultra Wool worsted and DK

June 11, 2018

Berroco's new workhorse yarns are a hit!

Berroco introduced their first 100% wools yarns last year along with a portfolio of patterns for the worsted weight.  Ultra Wool DK is lighter version of the well-loved, worsted weight Ultra Wool – a smooth and sturdy 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 everyday accessories.

Each weight comes in 100 gram ball.  The worsted is 219 yards and the DK 292 yards, already wound into a center-pull skein, no less. The center-pull end is neatly tucked into the label, so you don’t have to reach into the depths of the skein to fumble for it, one of the pleasing features of Ultra Wool in both worsted and DK weight.

Look for Ultra Wool DK in our DK weight section and Ultra Wool in the worsted section, both in a full range of colors!

December KAL

camden hills poncho berroco ultra wool

We are having a Fun Friday!  We've chosen this day to launch the Cast On for our December KAL, Camden Hills Poncho.  It's a poncho with sleeves, so we have affectionately nicknamed it a "swoncho" - mix of sweater of poncho.  It has some very nice feminine touches like a lace border, longer back and some nice detail at the neck.  It will be the perfect thing to wrap up in on chilly days!

The pattern is found in Berroco Portfolio Vol. 4 which features patterns written for Ultra Wool.  It would look equally good using Ultra Alpaca.  We have a good selection of colors in both of.
