 Product reviewed: Universal Yarns - Bamboo Pop
I've searched for a lighter cotton or cotton blend for warm weather projects and took a chance on this. I love it! It knits up evenly with a nice drape and a light sheen. It doesn't have that heavy feel some cottons do, perhaps it's the bamboo. Washes well and doesn’t grow as the day goes on. I wish there were more choices in the solid colors.

 Product reviewed: Plymouth - DK Merino Superwash
A lovely yarn that's a joy to knit! No problems with splitting and no knots in the 5 skeins I've used. Finally a superwash that doesn't lose stitch definition or become limp and floppy after washing. It's very soft and has a springy texture that's perfect for baby items. I made a cardigan and was really impressed that the 1112 Red DID NOT bleed at all.

 Product reviewed: Rowan - Pure Wool 4 ply
I rarely feel bad enough about a yarn that I come back and leave a negative response but this is my 2nd bad experience with the Rowan's Pure Wool line. Both the 4 ply and the DK versions behave well UNTIL they are washed. Then the fabric becomes so limp that all stitch definition is lost. I understand that's the accepted compromise when using superwash wools but what is not acceptable is the amount the fabric grows measured in inches and completely changes the sizing. I did have some success with cautiously machine drying the 4-ply. But, this is baby gift and I doubt the parents will appreciate the involved care especially with a newborn in the house. Isn't that the point of using superwash, easier care? I expected more from Rowan... BTW, the dk project is a goner.

 Radical change after washing! 4 of 4

 Product reviewed: Rowan - Pure Wool DK
I used this yarn for a child's pullover. I swatched, got gauge and all went well until I washed it per label. The fabric relaxes to the point that it grows by inches, completely throwing off the sizing. Even if I had washed the swatch I don't think I could have compensated for the growth. I really should have checked the Ravelry comments prior to purchase...
