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).

Really thick and thin!!

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...Read complete review

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.

    Fabulous Yarn for a Quick Gift

    By Simone K.

    from Tampa, Fl

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Economical
    • Gift Worthy
    • Plush
    • Quality

    Cons

    • Break In Yarn
    • Limited Colors
    • Limited Uses

    Best Uses

    • Cowl
    • Pillow
    • Scarf

    Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints:

    I used the yarn to make the Uninterrupted Cowl pattern which can be found on Ravelry. Whatever pattern you pick, I would keep it simple and let the yarn do all the work.

    One Skein had a separation of yarn in the middle of the skein, but it was easy enough to get back on track with minimal disturbance to the knitting.

    • Soft

    Cons

    • Limited Use
    • Very Thick And Thin

    Best Uses

    • Cowl

    • Scarf
    • Shawl

    Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints:

    I've made several amazing scarves from this gorgeous yarn,two shawls, and am currently making a 60" cowl. I guess it's obvious that I adore this yarn.
    If you up the needle size from the recommended #9 to a #10 or 10.5, the incredible softness will be apparent. On a #9 needle, the thin rayon becomes stiff, and the fluffy wool sections are choked.

    Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints:

    It'a a very beautiful yarn. I have knitted a shawlette in a couple of hours; it is just the right thing to stave off cold air conditioning. It would be nice to see more patterns besides shawlettes and cowls.
