      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.

              I have found this yarn to be ideal for the construction of chemo therapy caps for patients who have sensitive skin.

                        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
