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.

I enjoyed the yarn, but I was disappointed to find a knot in it....the kind when two pieces of yarn are tied together. I was knitting something lacy, and the knot was a pain. I was planning on knitting the piece with one skein of yarn and not having to weave in a lot of ends.

I am addicted to this yarn at the moment

By Ding

from East Wenatchee

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • A very soft sturdy yarn. Long lasting

Cons

  • Random knots from factory

Best Uses

  • Baby beanies and baby blankets

Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

Sturdy soft yarn, vibrant colors. Cotton for breathability with a nice bamboo sheen.
Like this yarn because it is a natural fiber and is stretchable but goes back to shape after washing.
I absolutely did not like the random knots from factory. I just learned how to do a magic knot that is hidden....Theirs are obvious. Only downfall.

Knitting a triple lace stole. I love knitting with this yarn. I cannot think of anything against this yarn. It is so soft, feels very luxurious for it to be cotton.

      Be Careful

      By surri sue

      from Medford, Oregon

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

      I can't emphasize enough. Do A Gauge, Do A Gauge, Do A Gauge. This yarn stretches like crazy. Lovely and works up nice but if your not careful your garment can come out size XXXXXL. I'd recommend it to a skilled knitter whose willing to go the extra yard.

          Pros

          • The Drape Is Wonderful
          • The Feel Is So Very Soft

          Cons

            Best Uses

              Comments about Universal Yarn Bamboo Pop:

              The colors of this yarn are lovely, the drape effect is lovely, and the softness is beautiful to the touch.
              I have some concern about its shape holding after washing; it tends to be a bit too stretchy.

              I am looking forward to the next garment using this yarn.
