Boliviana Bulky

We have a lovely new bulky yarn in the shop, Boliviana Bulky from Cascade. This pretty stuff has such a smooth finish for a bulky, and it's nicely plied which means less pilling. This would be great for a bulky sweater jacket or blanket. The colors are rich and vibrant, and we have such a nice range in the shop right now.
Boliviana is labeled a super bulky, knitting up at 2 to 2.5 stitches per inch. In the skein, it doesn't seem quite that heavy to me. It's a pure merino, so perhaps it fills in a bit with knitting and blocking. I guess we will need to work up a sample to see!
