      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 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.

                                  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.
