        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 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.

                I have made five blankets with this as the weft yarn. I have to pre-wash the hanks before weaving, to avoid "felting" of the final product when washed.

                      I made the cowl pattern that was suggested & couldn't leave it alone. It turned out great & was so much fun.

                                I like it using a 13 needle and knitting the thin and purling the thick. The colors are really great!

                                    The color shifts are beautiful and, sometimes, unexpected. While I was working on it people would stop and ask where I got the yarn.

                                    This yarn makes a beautiful, quick to knit cowl. I gave them as Christmas presents and all 3 were very pleased. I made 2 short ones like the pattern calls for and then made one with 2 skeins that was 250 stitches for my daughter who lives in New York. Everyone raved about it and she loves it for warmth and beauty.
                                    Great beauty for great price!
