            Nice look and feel to this yarn but the needle splits through this yarn very easily which really slows you down. Definitely not the yarn for doing intricate cable work. Very glad the sweater I was doing was only for a baby or I would have had to give up and use something else.

                I used it to knit sweater. I've never tried bamboo yarn before and blend of cotton and bamboo is perfect!
                It knits easily, very very soft and good for skin. i like this light pastel colours (I used light blue and natural). It stretches good enough and don't lose form. I would definetely use it again for my works.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Delivery was super fast! I had some problems with pyaing by card and manager helped me a lot (we had a email conversation). I got my yarn extremely fast despite my mistakes with payment.

                      Comments about Frog Tree Picoboo:

                      My LYS started a C2Knit along. We each picked a C2Knit pattern. I have wanted to try the Frog Tree Yarn but didn't have a project in mind. This endeavor provided the opportunity. I chose the Cotton Bamboo blend. I did have to go up 2 needle sizes to get the gauge and fabric I wanted.

                      Painted Trillium only had half the yarn I needed. I purchased the natural because it will be a summer sweater. However the weight of the fabric will allow me to wear it year round with a long sleeve tee.

                      I purchased 3 or 4 skeins from Webs to go with my purchase from Painted Trillium. It is always a concern about lot numbers. If I do not look at the lot numbers, I cannot tell you which skein I purchased either vendor! A huge bonus in my book.

                      I would definitely recommend using this yarn.

                      It is slippery. But I am an addi turbo kinda gal. Others may want to use a slower needle, like the Hiya Hiya (swatched) or Chiagoo (swatched). Wood and Bamboo were to sticky for me. I even tried some of the square needles. A fellow knitter said he likes using the square for cotton. I found the square needles split my yarn more than cotton does normally and my gauge was very different.

                      The Bottom line asks if I would recommend this to a friend. I would recommend this yarn to any one. I like the feel. It is knitting nicely inspite of my inability to read and follow the pattern correctly.
