Donna’s Ode to Berroco Remix

I have been using Berroco yarns since 1985. Since that time, there have been many beautiful yarns that have come and gone. I still have some of them in my stash. However, I. Love. Berroco Remix®.

I love how it smells.  I love how it feels while knitting with and wearing it. And I have loved it since it arrived on the scene in 2010. If you have a sensitivity to wool, Remix is a great choice, as it has no wool. It is nylon, acrylic, cotton, silk, and linen. It knits like a dream. And it’s 100% recycled.

The Sarkis bag from booklet 303 is the first piece I knit with Remix. Booklet 303 features patterns for the whole family made with Remix. Then Amanda Keep Williams designed Sawtelle for children. It’s such a great little cardigan that many people and myself requested the adult version. I made three. Now there are many more patterns for Remix and many still on my to-knit list. Then I made Kaver by Norah Gaughan (here’s a photo of me wearing one of my Kavers).

Cassia was the next big one for me. Norah and I both made this one before the books had been printed. Then I made one for my daughter with a hood. Since then I have made two more Kavers in other colors.

Capron, designed by Emily Nora O’Neill, is a lovely little throw that I keep in my car. And now…. we have Berroco Remix® Light! It is unbelievably soft. Booklet #386 has six awesome pieces. Two different size shawls, a little cardigan, two lovely pullovers, and a fabulous ruana. I hope you will try out this yarn and fall in love with it like I have.

  1. Remix is by far my favorite yarn from Berroco. I’ve made a few items from Berroco #303. I could not agree with Donna more on her assessment of the yarn. It is great to work with and the colors are beautiful! Please don’t ever discontinue this yarn!!

  2. I made Rafik over 5 years ago and it still looks like new after regular wear. I have another sweater’s worth in my stash which will probably become Brenda York’s Kale.

  3. just started weaving with this yarn and I love it. I agree about the smell and feel of the yarn. It is weaving with ease and I’m so glad my LYS suggested to me.
