Bernat Boa???
I have some questions about the Bernat Boa series that only someone with experience can answer.
I am trying to find out if it sheds or falls apart. I am contemplating making a long, thin scarf using it or something like it. Anything I need to know about that type of thread/yarn?

I don't know how it is in the long run but I used it on a felted bag and it held up very well during the felting process.

I haven't had any trouble. And there's a cute pattern in the 2007 knitting page a day calendar that uses it... I just have to wait 'till payday.

Made a scarf for my son 2 winters ago, and it's holding up fine.
