Comments about Berroco 312 Boboli:

This yarn is absolutely beautiful. It works up quickly. The colors are fabulous. It does require some special handling, though.

I got better results by using two balls at a time, alternating every other row. With one ball, you can get color clumping between the brighter colors and the more pastel shades [even though the individual colors are very short runs, the color saturation varies over long runs]. Alternating two balls makes this go away and gives a more consistent color blend.

The yarn is not colorfast [blues, in my case], so do be careful. When washing & blocking, it loosens up and softens.

While knitting, try not to split the yarn. It's easy enough to work with that you probably won't split it, but if you do split, it won't look right and you'll want to fix it.

I'd definitely recommend this yarn, though, because it makes a beautiful color product that is really fabulous.
