I am using Berroco Boboli yarns in several colorways to weave scarves on my rigid heddle loom. This worsted weight yarn comes in wonderful colorways that blend so nicely in woven fabric. If you're a rigid heddle weaver, give this one a try, you'll love the results. I can see how it would be a bit "hairy" to knit with, but in weaving with it the loosely spun type texture isn't a problem. I'm using it for both warp and weft. Wet finishes beautifully.

Great color variations

The fabric it produced is very soft. It also has this awesome poofy texture due to the yarn variation in winding. This can also be a negative because it's like you're knitting with string...Read complete review

The fabric it produced is very soft. It also has this awesome poofy texture due to the yarn variation in winding. This can also be a negative because it's like you're knitting with string and then it changes to a sport weight causing excessive curling in the fabric. I like the yarn but would not have made a sweater. Stick to small items and you will love it.

    Easy to crochet with and the yarn has a beautiful sheen. Only draw back is that it comes in hanks which have to be wound into balls before you can use.

        Comments about Berroco Boboli:

        Fell in love with the fall colors of Sweet Tea and the "shimmer" of this yarn. I did not realize that it was thick/thin until I started knitting with it. Lots of texture! It is a bit "splitty" so you have to pay attention, but it is worth it.

                I am using Berroco Boboli yarns in several colorways to weave scarves on my rigid heddle loom. This worsted weight yarn comes in wonderful colorways that blend so nicely in woven fabric. If you're a rigid heddle weaver, give this one a try, you'll love the results. I can see how it would be a bit "hairy" to knit with, but in weaving with it the loosely spun type texture isn't a problem. I'm using it for both warp and weft. Wet finishes beautifully.

                  It has a hair that balls up on then strand aas you knit it. It's pretty, but when finished the hair just doesn't look good!
