Get Comfy—Knitting and Crocheting with Berroco Comfort

If you want a yarn that is soft and washable, with many colors and weights to choose from, then Berroco Comfort® is the yarn for you. This wool-free yarn is made from nylon and acrylic, so it’s incredibly easy to care for—just throw it in the washing machine! Plus, it’s available in worsted, chunky, DK, and sock weights, making it one of the most versatile yarns in our line up.

And we partnered with craft publishers Stewart, Tabori & Chang to create a huge project consisting of 24 crocheted and 27 knitting afghans: Berroco Comfort® Knitting and Crochet: Afghans. By time we finished this book, I knew most of the color numbers and color names of Comfort yarn—which is noteworthy because there are so many colors (currently, we have 95 different shades in the worsted weight Berroco Comfort). Our favorites were Hummus and Aunt Martha Green.

Then, in 2012 we did another book called Berroco Comfort® Knitting & Crochet: Babies and Toddlers. Patterns for toys, hats, throws, and everything in between. The book also features the cutest babies and toddler models.

  1. I love, love, love Comfort! I have a great pullover using chunky and I used the worsted weight last year to make a cardigan. I totally have that onesie pattern in my queue to make as a gift this summer. Such a great alternative to wool!

  2. Also a *huge* fan of Comfort. It is my go-to yarn for gifts when I’m not 100% sure the recipient will be OK with wool (either because of sensitivity or fabric care issues). Last summer I made a beautiful wedding afghan in the Chunky. And I’m currently making hat/scarf sets using the Worsted for dear friends who live in WI – his has a Green Bay Packers theme – the range of colors is fab.

  3. I used the Comfort chunky to make a cardigan for my niece and the Comfort DK in the same pink to make a matching one for her doll. I was so pleased with the results – and so was she!
