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.

            I used it in skirts with acrylic so that I could get the the best of both. The colors really are gorgeous. It's a little coarse so make something that isn't going to have direct contact.

            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.
