If I were going to base my opinion on this Claudia Hand Painted Boucle gifted to me two years ago, I would say that I really, really dislike boucle. -- Had you asked me last year I my response would have been;
Claudia Hand Painted Boucle is a combination of mohair, wool and nylon. I think it's the natural fibers in the boucle form that are a problem for me. I don't plan on knitting with a acrylic boucle ever but I will say that an acrylic would be a much easier yarn to knit with.
There are approximately 102 projects on Ravelry using this yarn. If there are that many projects, then I should be able to make something.
It is a really pretty yarn though. The color is Terra Cotta, 432 yards and it's soft. I have chosen a shawl pattern for my mother. The pattern is Janet's Shawl (Rav Link) and shows the sample knit in Lion Brand's Homespun. This will be another quick easy peasy knit.
See, all I did was lay it down to be photographed and look at what it does. All potential for tangles with no possibility of ripping back.
I may start this one next week. I have completed my Multnomah. I just don't feel like blocking it.
Toodles all, have a wonderful day !
