And the Berroco just keeps on comin'!

Jan sent a note this morning to let me know that she's just made Berroco Sundae and Berroco Blackstone Tweed available on

Blackstone Tweed is a nubby, rustic tweed that has just enough mohair and angora mixed with the wool to add softness and loft. It's terrific for autumn cardigans, sweaters and jackets. This yarn is crafted in Italy (magnifico!) of 65% wool, 25% superkid mohair and 10% angora. It comes in 12 colors and is $9.35 for a 50 gram ball.

Another scrumptious addition that's great for your quick-to-create projects is Berroco's super chunky Sundae yarn. Another Italian import, this beautifully crafted 50% wool and 50% acrylic yarn has pretty tone-on-tone hues all in the same single ply. If you like heathered shades, you'll want to choose this one for knitted or crocheted jackets, sweaters, hats, scarves or other super bulky garments and accessories. It's available in 10 colors for just $8.85 for a 100 gram ball.

We're really thrilled with the new Berrocco fibers and colors for the upcoming fashion season and we're certain our knitters are going to love them, too.

Be sure to check out the next edition of KnitchMagazine when we review some of these great new yarns. If you subscribe now, you'll receive an e-mail alert when the new issue is released.
