A washable & baby-soft wool blend! This DK weight Vintage yarn from Berroco highlights the warmth of wool, the durability of acrylic, and the stretch of nylon, while still being next-to-skin soft even for those with sensitive skin. These fibers blended together produce a versatile yarn that has the heard-wearing comfort needed for baby garments.
This yarn is the newest addition to Berroco's popular Vintage line. This line is known for its soft & hearty washable wool blend yarns, but this new yarn is oh-so-much softer than all the rest!

Berroco has been producing quality yarn for 40 years but the company's roots actually go back centuries. From the Daniel Day Mill in 1809 to present-day Stanley Mill, six generations of Wheelock's have been continuously involved in the American textile industry.
Warren Wheelock's great-great-great-grandfather, Jerry Wheelock, began the tradition by producing woolen cloth, an enterprise that would grow and change, enduring the test of time. In 1905, Stanley Wheelock established Stanley Woolen Mills, surviving the great depression, two world wars, and weathering the changing times and demands in the world of textiles. In 1968, the Wheelock family formed Stanley Berroco which was transformed into Berroco in 1987 by Warren Wheelock and his wife, Caroline. The new firm grew to become one of the largest importers of handknitting yarns, patterns, and supplies in the United States and Canada.
Berroco is known for its high-quality yarns which widely range from traditional to novelty and are sourced from all over the world, including the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Romania, Brazil, and Peru. Located on the site of the old Lonsdale Cotton Mill (1904) in North Smithfield, Rhode Island, Berroco continues its well-rooted family tradition of providing quality textiles at affordable prices.
“Ever since we were teenagers we worked in the mill, doing various jobs, learning the business, so we got to know the people, and they knew us…” quote from 1994 interview with Philip, Arthur & Strickland Wheelock.
