    Bamboo Bloom Handprints

    Great product to work with. Beautiful colors, nice consistency and fluffiness expect if you wash it several times (even if in cold water, flat dry).

    I ordered this in two colors to knit mobeiouses, and it will work for them, however, I wouldn't recommend it for sweaters or anything that needs to hold its shape. Great color blends. The very soft, thick sections tend to fray, handle them very gently.

      Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints:

      I've made a number of shawls with this yarn, and I've been very pleased with the results. The interesting (and sometimes unpreditable) color combinations make for lovely results. The bamboo in the yarn creates a very nice drape of the resulting product.

      Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints:

      This yarn was fun to make into a cowl. I don't like the way the thick parts started pooling in the arm of a sweater. The yarn looks fine in the body of a sweater knit in the round.

      Pretty color combinations

      By Sue

      from MA

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints:

      I bought this in 2 color combinations for cowls. I liked the quality of the yarn. I liked the combination of rayon segments interspersed with wool segments. However, the difference between the thick and thin sections was great making it a bit hard to work with. There weren't many stitches this successfully worked with. However, the final product was very nice. More of a spring or fall yarn also.

          This was a quick project that turned out so well that I had to make another shawl for my daughter. Used the seed stitch with sz 13 (9mm). With the left over yarn I made a vest with a tie belt.

                    • Not sure at this point

                    Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints:

                    I was very disappointed in the yarn. It is probably about 80% thin pieces. I would never buy this yarn again. I did love the colors though.
