This sweater makes a great present for a dear friend. Berroco® Aero™ works up very quickly, so you can make an impressive present in relatively little time. The yarn does an incredible job: It is light and creates a very soft fabric. The smooth color transitions will give each sweater a very pleasant and unique character. The fabric adjusts amazingly well to different body shapes, so if you’re not exactly sure about your friend’s sweater size, there’s a good chance it will fit anyway. Lastly, the sweater feels like a hug from a cloud: It is warm, yet airy, and with only about 8 oz in weight you’ll barely feel it. BFF approved!
