I made a toddler's dress using a solid color for the bodice and a multi-color for the skirt. The solid was extremely disappointing. The yarn tended to split and was annoying to work with. I only needed one skein, and the one I received had FOUR knotted sections in it! On the other hand, the multi-colored skeins used for the skirt section were a dream to work with, did not split, were not spliced, and the resulting fabric was beautiful in both look and feel.

I enjoyed the yarn, but I was disappointed to find a knot in it....the kind when two pieces of yarn are tied together. I was knitting something lacy, and the knot was a pain. I was planning on knitting the piece with one skein of yarn and not having to weave in a lot of ends.

Be Careful

Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

I can't emphasize enough. Do A Gauge, Do A Gauge, Do A Gauge. This yarn stretches like crazy. Lovely and works up nice but if your not careful your garment can come out size XXXXXL. I'd recommend it to a skilled knitter whose willing to go the extra yard.

          Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

          The colors of this yarn are lovely, the drape effect is lovely, and the softness is beautiful to the touch.
          I have some concern about its shape holding after washing; it tends to be a bit too stretchy.

          I am looking forward to the next garment using this yarn.

              Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

              This yarn knits up wonderfully. Great stitch definition. The plies aren't splitty. The turquoise color is even and saturated. I didn't find any knots in the yarn, something particularly aggravating with yarn that won't respond to felted joins. I highly recommend this yarn. It's a wonderful cotton-bamboo blend.
