I really enjoyed knitting with Bamboo Pop - baby booties and little baby washclothes. It doesn’t split, has great stitch definition, and really excellent drape. I’d definitely use it again.
Short story: Uptown Worsted is Affordable, anti-pilling acrylic yarn in fashion-forward and standard colors that doesn’t feel cheap and crinkly. Matte finish resembles that of more expensive fibers.
Classic Shades is soft and it isn’t shiny like some acrylics. It is a good alternative to some of the expensive yarns I love and it’s more washable which is nice for gifts. I haven’t had any trouble with splitting. I will definitely use it again.
