Let's Get Comfortable

This just in! We've added Berroco Comfort Chunky to our lineup. This yarn boasts all the same lovable features as the original Comfort Worsted, but with a larger chunky-weight gauge.

Both Comfort Chunky and Comfort Worsted are 50% Super Fine Acrylic, 50% Super Fine Nylon, vegan, machine-washable, AND machine dryable (!). While Comfort is a staple in our stash for all things baby because of its easy care, it has endless other applications, too. Fantastic stitch definition and a remarkably soft hand make it great for vegans, those with wool allergies, and items that will need frequent laundering.

Berroco Comfort Chunky

Comfort Chunky comes in a whopping 35 colors. (One is pictured twice below to round out the image - we just couldn't leave it hanging!) The chunky gauge of around 14 sts = 4" / 10 cm for knit and 13 sc & 14 rows = 4" / 10 cm for crochet will make your next baby blanket absolutely fly off the needles or hook.

Need some inspiration? Berroco offers some really lovely free patterns like Wishshaw by Tanis Gray and Forestdale by the Berroco Team.

Berroco Comfort Worsted

And just because her big sister is new to town, let's not forget about Comfort Worsted. Worsted is arguably the most versatile yarn weight, and this one comes in a wide range of solids as well as several bright and fun prints.

Need some inspiration? We LOVE Comfort Worsted for blankets. Take a gander at the following free patterns - Schuyler by Berroco and Greenway (crocheted) by Donna Yacino.
