CATARRATTO & Berroco Summer Silk

Berroco Summer Silk

Berroco Summer Silk is a sumptuously buttery soft blend of cotton and silk.  It may seem like a luxurious choice, but it has incredible yardage, twice what other yarns usually offer. It’s the perfect choice for garments, accessories, and general cuddling.

This yarn makes a gorgeous sweater, like Catarratto below, or check out the FREE Sweatshirt Sweater, Pavement by Veera Välimäki, 001 by Veronika Jobe, or Fairchild by Bristol Ivy.
