Cotton Supreme is my absolute favorite cotton yarn…wonderful to work with, dreamily soft, finished items are not heavy, machine washes and dries nicely….highly recommend.
My first time working with Bamboo Pop but it won't be the last time. Felt so good and worked up beautifully.
Uptown Bulky works up beautifully, no splitting, it feels so soft and plush and yet works into a beautiful fabric. I will use this yarn for many projects. Thanks Universal!
