                I am using BAMBOO POP for a very soft and lovely cowl pullover. I love color, so I bought "Happy Birdie" I also purchased extra. Depending on how it stripes, I wanted to stripe the bust area with solid colors. So what if I change my mind. I love buying yarn!!!! It will simply go into my very large stash. All of which is enough to make a top! Happy Birdie will find a nice nest in my basket.

                      I made this as a chemo cap for my mom. She claims she will not take it off, not even long enough to wash it :-)

                      the brilliant blues color worked up beautifully. I will be making another cap in Bright Spot

                            Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

                            I used this to make baby dresses. There are wonderful colour choices, it is soft
                            to work with, and washes very well--we all know how icky babies are!
                            Even after apx. 10 washes, my projects have held up with no pilling, pulling
                            or shrinkage. It is multi-stranded, so every 20 stitches or so, I would miss one
                            of the strands. That was a little annoying. One of the 18 skeins I have used
                            was full of joins, like the company had 7-9 pieces they decided to tie together and sell. It wasn't noticeable in the finished product to anyone except me. Other than that, this is a fabulous yarn and I plan on purchasing more for future projects!

                            Service and delivery comments:

                            Delivery was prompt, even on my out of stock choices. Everything arrived in good condition and didn't carry an unusual smell, which can sometimes be a problem if yarn has sat in a warehouse for a while.

                            Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

                            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.

                              Yarn is soft but strong enough to keep a true shape in a baby garment that may get washed a lot.

                                The yarn has a beautiful sheen and soft feel. I started with an open work crochet pattern, and the yarn was much too drapy. I switched to a tighter, closed shell pattern, with much better results.

                                I knit four kids tops in no time; fun color changes kept me going. Since I wanted the garments to be easy care, I ran my SWATCH through the washer AND DRYER, then (based on the resulting gauge) added extra rows to anticipate 15% shrinkage in length. You must SWATCH!!

                                  I absolutely love this yarn. I can't be positive enough about my feelings for it. I have used 3 balls so far and not one knot! I have only split a very few stitches and those were because I was watching TV. It also frogs well but no one here will need to do that right? ;)

                                  I have used it to make a bag for my yoga mat and it works beautifully for that purpose. I have also made chemo caps which were VERY well received due to the softness and coolness of the fabric it produces. I am planning a small throw for summer/fall use on my son's toddler bed. I even fixed a teddybear nose with this yarn and it is apparently not only lovely but delicious.
