Berroco introduces 2 fabulous sock yarns

Socks are a huge knitting trend all over the world. Since socks are small, portable, one-ball projects that appeal to avid knitters everywhere, we have developed 2 new sock yarns that are sure to fascinate and tantalize wool and non-wool lovers alike. Berroco Sox™ is our wooly sock yarn and Comfort®Sock is our acrylic and nylon blend.

I am a plus size person and don't know how to increase your styles to fit me. Please think of us "real women of size" when you are doing patterns (sz 18-20). We like to be stylish too. I am excited to learn more about your design process!"

Dear Mary, Thanks for your email. Most of our designs are sized up to fit 50-52" finished bust measurements. If you browse our pattern collection on our website you will find the size range for each sweater design on the same page as the yarn amounts. For Veil, for example, the Yarn Amounts link in the lower right corner of this page takes you to yarn amounts and sizing.

All the best,

Margery Winter
Creative Director
