NEW Berroco Weekend


Just like it’s big sister Berroco Weekend Chunky, Berroco Weekend is a great yarn for summer projects. It’s a worsted weight, so very easy to sub for a multitude of projects. It is soft, easy to work with, machine washable, and ever so affordable. Made in Peru, it is a blend of Cotton and Acrylic (but not the icky stuff, just the happy variety), which makes it a lot lighter and bouncier than regular cottons.
