I bought this on sale recently. It is wonderfully soft and silky, with a bit of a chenille texture to it. As with any boucle, it takes a little extra time to work it, but it worth the effort. It also has a lovely soft sheen to it. I'm making an afghan and I can tell it will be extraordinary.

A very nice yarn to work with. As the previous reviewer mentions, it's very soft. It's pretty close to the feel of baby alpaca, considering it's a synthetic. Nice, rich colours, too.
