            Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades Big Time:

            The sapphire color was definitely more tan/brown than blue. I found the chili pepper color elsewhere and it is a gorgeous color. The yarn knits up quickly but is annoying that there is almost always two ends knotted together in the skein to keep the yarn going. I find this VERY aggravating!!

                Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades Big Time:

                I bought six of these in different colors to knit cowls as gifts and when I gave the first two away, my friends desperately wanted a ball to knit themselves. Then one of them ordered several to make as gifts as well. The colors are amazing. It's really nice and soft and knits up very quickly.
