I purchased this yarn to make a baby blanket. I used neon pink, neon orange and sand. The neons were true to the picture on the website but sand was darker than pictured.
The yarn has a high quantity of acrylic but it looks, feels and knits like wool. It was reasonably soft (especially for acrylic), has excellent stitch definition and some drape. The only negative was the yarn did split while knitting, however it wasn't the worst splitting I've dealt with.
The price was reasonable given the quality of the yarn thought I wouldn't pay more for an acrylic.
I gave the blanket a soak in warm water and the neons did bleed some colour, then put it through the machine on a wool wash with reduced spin. The blanket came out perfect.
Apart from the splitting the yarn was excellent and I would use it again especially for anything that needed to be machine washable.

I love that this yarn is a chunky weight and is offered in bright neons.
However, this yarn splits very easily. Some colors, like the purple is a lot itchier for some reason.

Again, I make kids hats so I can only use this yarn for the top portion that does not touch skin because of it's itchiness.

I wanted a really bulky style and this yarn was perfect for it. Washes and dries in the drier beautifully, no shrinking.

Works up super quick! The blue is gorgeous whipping up a scarf in granite stitch in no time! I would purchase this yarn again for a scarf no questions asked. (I cannot speak for how yarn washes because project has yet to be washed).

Love this yarn. I am not used to using bulky, but thought it was perfect for a hat. Blue is my favorite color.

Comments about MY MOUNTAIN SCHACHENMAYR Boston:

I'm using this for afghans. I have only made a few swatches and so far I like how it is knitting. The colors are wonderful. On my "yummy soft scale" I would give it a 5 (alpaca/silk being a 10). I might pair it with a chenille to make my project go faster and had more "yummy softness".
