      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).

      Really thick and thin!!

      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.

          This was a quick project that turned out so well that I had to make another shawl for my daughter. Used the seed stitch with sz 13 (9mm). With the left over yarn I made a vest with a tie belt.

                    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.
