    I love this yarn for felting. It's cheaper than noro kureyon and it actually felts better. And no thick and thin spots, either. The colors are nice and it softens up as it felts. it's easy to spit join when necessary :)

    Beautiful end product; yarn is fragile

    This yarn makes beautiful colorways, but is coarse and very fragile. The yarn broke even while winding it by hand into a ball.

    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Boku:

    I really like the colors. I find it silimlar to Noro Kureyon without the vegetation.
    My felted bag still has knit stitches showing. I don't if that my inexperience with felting or the yarn. Either way, I'm not disappointed. I am almist finished with HEY TEACH! In a different colorway, we'll see how a garment holds up.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Boku:

      I have not knitted the gloves for which I purchased this yarn. I am hoping that once knitted and gently washed the feel of the yarn will soften. I think for a hat the softness will not be as important. The variegation in the color is beautiful. I look forward to seeing this knitted up.

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Boku:

          I would not buy this yarn again as it is too difficult to work with. As it breaks so easily, I am not sure what i will make with it now.

          Also, it is too rough to wear next to skin.
