"Here in Appalacian Ohio, we poor rural folk often don’t have the money for high priced yarns if used in quantity. That’s why our shop specializes in the most quality for the least money. We’re all going wild over Plymouth’s Boku, a substitute for Noro’s Kureyon that’s nearly half the price, yet has the same beautiful color shading.
The yarn is 95% wool and 5% silk, and has a nicer hand, and when felted is fantastically soft. Coming in 10 color ways, everyone has been trying entrelac for the first time, and loving it, as there’s no need to weave in ends with the different color changes.
It also felts into a wonderfully soft felt, so that some of us are about to leap out from doing handbags, and try making felted clothing. One idea we’ve had is to just knit straight swatches from different color way balls, felt them, and then cut them into squares (or maybe other shapes) and crochet them together into a hat, vest, shrug or wrap, using different crochet stitches."
