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.

            Used this for a shawlette. Had many compliments. The colors are very rich and deep. Garment weight was just right for those chilly occasions when you just need "a little something" on your shoulders.

                  I' m using this to make a shawl. The colors are vibrant and the yarn is soft.
                  Very to knit with it.

                    Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades:

                    I made two pair of legwarmers. The needles often split the ply and the stitch needed to be fixed for good definition. Any re-do caused the yarn to fuzz. I loved the look and texture of the final product.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The delivery was unbelievably fast. From desire to needles in no time.

                    Be wary of pictures--the yarn that arrived was so different from what was pictured. Very misleading and disappointing. The predominant colors weren't shown on the website. The shipping cost should have been refunded. Makes me hesitant to purchase any more yarn from Webs.

                    Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades:

                    This yarn is a lot like Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable. It is a loosely spun yarn that has lovely color runs and is a bit lighter weight than worsted. It isn't bad to knit with, but it is definitely a texture to get used to. I like that it's not hand-wash, and the color runs are interesting, but I wish there was a pure rainbow one. I was using this as a replacement for Bernat Mosaic, but it really is not that similar in weight or texture.
