        Soft and easy to work with

        By Illinoisian

        from Bloomington, IL

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • A Very Soft Yarn
        • Fun Checker Color Pattern
        • Knits Up True To Gauge

        Cons

          Best Uses

          • Toddler Pullover

          Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

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

          Service and delivery comments:

          As usual, yarn arrived very quickly from yarn.com

          Beautiful drapy yarn

          Best Uses

            Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

            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.

            Pros

            • Easy care
            • Few knots
            • Nice Texture

            Cons

            Best Uses

            • Warm Weather Garments

            Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

            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!!

              • Summer Garments
              • Yoga Mat Bags

              Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

              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.

                Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

                Crocheted a shawl. Came out very heavy and didn't drape well. Probably will rip it out and redo as a sweater. Very nice color but splits. Hard to join because this is not a fuzzy yarn to cover the splice. Easy to frog. Very soft.

                Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

                I really like this yarn.it is soft and colorful. Perfect for making a couple shrugs for my babies. The only thing I wish were the color changes to be a little longer. I crochet so the color can be a little muddled for me. But I will buying this again in solids.

                  Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

                  I bought it for the Ruched Yoke Tee pattern from Interweave Knits. I noticed that it tends to split if you have to frog and re-work - it's fine the first time around, but I had to rip a row, and I fought the splitting when I redid that section.

                  I would probably use this again, especially in a tank-top or other shirt pattern. It'd be gorgeous for lace work.
