I love the long color changes in this yarn for crochet projects. I wouldn't knit with it. It doesn't unravel easily, and I'm not a proficient knitter. The colors are beautiful but inconsistent from skein to skein in the same dye lot.

i find the 'halo' to be almost too much, and the yarn is terribly 'snaggly'. i have found lots of tiny knotted joins in each skein.

otherwise, the 'cedar forest' colorway is very pretty, and my 'february lady' sweater will be a pleasure to wear because of the cuddly softness.

although i have knitted with more frustrating yarns than this, i doubt i would use it again unless it came in at some ridiculously low price.

Second Time Around

Pros

  • Good Weight
  • Knits Quickly
  • Soft

Cons

  • Changing Bulk

Best Uses

  • Afghans

Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades:

Using this yarn for a second time on the "Ten Stitch Zigzag" afghan. The variegation keeps it interesting on what could be a monotonous pattern. Reasonably priced, soft and comfortable to knit with...would work just as well for scarves, hats or anything wearable.

    Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades:

    I love this yarn! The colors are bright and vibrant, the yardage is very generous. To me that is very important. I bought some yarn along with this that look almost like BonBons there is so little.
    I haven't used this yet but I am very excited about getting started with it. I plan to start my tapestry weaving again and this yarn will be a big player in that.

    Very Soft

    By Knitting addict

    About Me Enthusiast

    Pros

    • Great Blend Of Fibers
    • Soft

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Scarves
      • Sweaters

      Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades:

      This is light enough to wear spring thru fall and warm enough for places with low AC temps. Tonal variation on this shade is subtle but lovely.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Very prompt shipping; I buy from Webs frequently and have been consistently very pleased.

        I liked the knitting with the yarn very much but at least two of the skeins I received had either a spinning problem or was knotted in the middle which I did not like.

        NOT WHAT I EXPECTED

          Best Uses

            Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades:

            Not what I expected. The yarn is ok though. The yarn is too fuzzy. I guess it because of the acrylic, more acrylic than wool. The yarn is 70 % acrylic and 30 % wool. I brought the yarn to make the Cabled Dress. The yarn hides the cable pattern, can't really see the pattern. So then I brought the solid color Classic Shades to knit the Cabled Dress. Still the yarn is fuzzy but at least you can see the cabled pattern. I ordered the Wine color and the some if the skeins had darker colors and some of the skeins had lighter colors with the same dye lot number. I could clearly see it was 2 different colors. I was going to send the yarn back, but I didn't want to pay for shipping and wait another week and a half, so I decided to keep the yarn. Not sure if i would recommend this yarn to a friend.

              Best Uses

                Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades:

                Because the yarn is shaded, there is no concern about dye lots, which was helpful since my original purchase was from a small yarn store. The afghan I made wasn't large enough, so I purchased additional skeins from WEBS.

                Service and delivery comments:

                WEBS service and delivery was prompt, and the product arrived in beautiful condition. I highly recommend this site!

                  Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades:

                  The color is beautiful but I was worried it wouldn't be soft enough. (I am knitting a cardigan for my 4 year old neice.) As I knit though it seems quite nice and soft enough. I can't wait to give her the finished product.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Arrived on time and was able to track it.

                        This is my second scarf using this yarn. I am using Harvest color and it is dying my fingers will this rub off my clothes? I used Grapevine for the first one and it not do this. I have used the Classic shades to make other items and did not have this problem. Is there a remedy for this?
