Berroco Fuji

Fuji is a compelling silk blend yarn that has the texture of raw silk but is much more practical.
It is comfortable to wear and easy to care for.  The colours are gentle shades of natural colours which lend themselves to year round use.  The finished fabric has some structure and will hold it’s shape yet drapes nicely.
See the details and colours of Fuji.
Designs for this yarn are found in Norah Gaughan 14, Booklet 327, and Booklet 343.
Many of Berroco’s patterns are now available individually directly from their site, on Ravelry and in our shop as a PDF download.
If there is a pattern that you wish with your purchase of yarn we can download it for you.
The price will be the same from all sources.
