        • Knit Top For Summer

        Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

        I purchased white for a short sleeved, summer weight top for myself. It is a joy to knit!!! The drape feels heavenly on my hands. I do not tire of working with this yarn. I have encountered only one knot, and I am on my third skein. I think the ends will be easy to tie/sew into the final garment.

              Glides on the needles. Lightweight. The 50% cotton/ 50% Bamboo, makes it less stretchy. I'm using this to knit a Christening Gown & Blanket..The weight & feel of this yarn,will be perfect.

                Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

                I used this for a toddler sweater for a tropical climate. Its the perfect weight for a light and airy wrap. It washed well. The yarn makes a fabric that is soft and drapey, great for a casual look. The finished fabric has a nice sheen. The variations of color are not very long, so it doesn't create large stripes or pools of color, but instead creates a more shimmery mosaic effect. The colors are quite beautiful. The yarn knits up nicely on a size 4 needle, is a bit droopy on a size 6.
                I enjoyed working with the yarn, which was soft and easy to knit. I did not have any problems with splitting or tangling. I will go to this yarn again.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Great service from WEBS, as always!

                  Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

                  I am making a dress for a pre-school aged girl. I chose the yarn because of the color and the fiber content as it needs to be washable and the price was right. My only gripe with this yarn is that there were 2 knots and a frayed area in the first ball. I have just stared the 2nd ball so we'll see. I would still use this yarn again.
