    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.

    The colors are beautiful, but it colored my hands and needles (bamboo) when working with it. It also got very fuzzy and sheds quite a bit. I made a scarf with it and it is pretty soft, but I should have used some yarn with better drape as it seems stiff, even with size 9 needles and a gauge of 4 st/in.

    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.

                Comments about Berroco Boboli:

                I'm using this yarn as the main color in a winter knitted shawl. I wanted a yarn with personality, one that was warm and soft and also easy to work with. Boboli is all of these, especially when knitted with metal needles.

                The one small drawback is that when knitting, you need to be careful not to spit the yarn with your needle tip. Otherwise, this yarn is a dream to work with. I'm definitely going to make something else, in a different colorway, with this yarn.

                I made a scarf with this yarn which worked out fine. Making shawl was difficult so I tore it out and changed to a softer more drapery yarn.

                  Comments about Berroco Boboli:

                  Each time a client of mine turns 90, or enters a nursing home, I make them the most elegant, softest, lush afghan possible. The response has been overwhelming. It is a way for me to indulge my delight..playing with colors..and say in the softest manner possible, "Goodbye" to friends of thirty, forty years. I shall stockpile Boboli because it is the perfect base for these blankets.

                    I used this yarn in a shadow knitting scarf.
                    The color changes in this yarn gave me the contrasts I was looking for with a nice soft drape to the fabric.

                    I would like to see this yarn in a multi ply yarn instead of a single ply only.
