        Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Shades Big Time:

        I wanted to love this yarn - it's super soft and the colors are beautiful but while I was knitting it seems to shed everywhere! I was continually getting fuzz in my mouth while knitting this. Also when working with three strands together on size 15 needles, it seems to be all too easy to split a stitch. I was hoping to use this to knit a pouf cushion but don't think it's durable enough to sit on an uncarpeted surface.

              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.

                    It knits up quickly and softly. Has many beautiful shades to choose from too.
