        Bamboo Bloom Handprints

        Great product to work with. Beautiful colors, nice consistency and fluffiness expect if you wash it several times (even if in cold water, flat dry).

        I ordered this in two colors to knit mobeiouses, and it will work for them, however, I wouldn't recommend it for sweaters or anything that needs to hold its shape. Great color blends. The very soft, thick sections tend to fray, handle them very gently.

                  Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Bloom Handpaints:

                  I was very disappointed in the yarn. It is probably about 80% thin pieces. I would never buy this yarn again. I did love the colors though.

                    I have made five blankets with this as the weft yarn. I have to pre-wash the hanks before weaving, to avoid "felting" of the final product when washed.

                                    I like it using a 13 needle and knitting the thin and purling the thick. The colors are really great!

                                        The color shifts are beautiful and, sometimes, unexpected. While I was working on it people would stop and ask where I got the yarn.
