This a a FUN yarn to work with!

We are now into our fourth afghan, each featuring multiple colors of BOKU - just gorgeous! This project has been taken on by me and my colleagues as a fundraiser for four years in a row. Each time, the afghan has turned out to look unlike any before, and equally stunning. We are rewarded with a wonderful response when the bidding happens!

As an aside, I fell in love with the unique self-striping BOKU features and chose to knit myself a skirt! "Knitting a skirt?!" my brother in-law questioned.... ABSOLUTELY!! It is one of my fun and funky go-to outfits and is fun show off!

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 have one cardigan from this yarn and get compliments every time I wear it. I bought this lot to make a Lizard Ridge Afghan and a Twisty Spiral Scarf.

        I used 5 skeins to knit a 77" long scarf, 12 " wide. It went really fast. I want to congratulate WEBS for the speedy delivery!

        Beautiful colors, but prone to felting

            Comments about Plymouth Yarn Boku:

            I am surprised at the amount of people commenting about the yarn breaking. I made two shawls and used a total of 24 skeins without a single problem. Maybe I just got lucky! The yarn is quite coarse, but softens a bit after gentle washing. However, I handwashed as recommended and my shawl came out somewhat felted which was very disappointing. Also, the colors were a bit muddied after washing.

            Like other reviewers have said, there are bits of hay or something in the yarn that are quite uncomfortable to encounter. Be careful if you use this yarn.

            As much as I enjoy the colors, I can't say I'd recommend this yarn or use it again.

              I've made a gorgeous wrap for my husband to wear when he's writing novels and feeling chilly. I've also made a few infinity scarves and hats. Everyone loved my gifts. It's not quite as soft as some of the more expensive yarns but even expensive yarns like Noro aren't always super soft. It's not scratchy and it looks lovely.

                I knit several cowls with the popcorn stitch and they were soooo well received as gifts. The colors are yummy and are so varied it's easy to find something to wear the cowls with.

                  Not my favorite yarn. The hand isn't great, it's a little bit rough. Wouldn't work well for kids as it wouldn't -in my estimation-hold up to a lot of washing. Colors are great, though.

                    I sell a lot of hand knits and make fingerless gloves from the Boku. It sells out at every show. So sad to see it discontinued. Wonderful colors.

                      The darkest green color disintegrated as I was knitting. Very disappointed in this yarn and will never purchase again.
