Have you had a chance to check out the Spring yarns and patterns from Berroco? If you haven’t yet, you’ll want to take a peek!

Berroco Mixer

Berroco Mixer is featured on the cover of our Spring catalog. (Have you looked at the online version? It should be hitting mailboxes soon!) This blend of cotton, polyester, viscose, and nylon has a shimmery and matte finish and a great texture. It works up into a flowing fabric and is featured in Berroco 354 Mixer pattern book.

Berroco Espresso

Berroco Espresso is a bulky blend of cotton and acrylic that works up at 3 stitches per inch. It is a colorful yarn that is machine washable, so it’s perfect for easy-care projects that will fly off your needles or hook. You can find patterns in Berroco 356 Espresso.

Berroco Indigo

Berroco Indigo is made of recycled cotton fibers and is super soft – like a favorite pair of jeans. It is slightly tweedy and comes in a great palette of colors. It is a machine washable yarn that’s perfect for garments and accessories. You can find patterns for both in Berroco 353 Indigo.

Berroco Fiora

Berroco Fiora is a soft blend of cotton, viscose, alpaca, nylon, and wool. It has a wonderful heathered look because of the different fibers. There is fantastic pattern support for this classic yarn in Berroco 355 Fiora and Berroco Norah Gaughan Vol. 16.
