It's not often that something "wows" me in the crafting world, but the latest set from Jimmy Beans Wool is truly amazing. The Universal Jumble Set is stunning in more ways than one and is great for those who love to mix and match different types and colors of yarn.

Each kit contains six skeins of Universal yarn including Garden Metallic, Universe, Whisper Lace, Bamboo Pop, Cotton True Sport and Flax. The kit also includes a knit and crochet version of a pattern, the crochet hook and knitting needle required for the pattern and a shawl pin to keep the shawl in place.

Working with different yarns on a single project can be painful, but the Jumble Set is a great way to get you started. Garden Metallic is exactly what it sounds like; it's a size 10 cotton thread with bits of metallic fibers throughout the strands making it sparkle like magic. Universe has glitter yarn mixed with linen, combed cotton and polyamide giving it a fabulous shimmer. Whisper Lace is an amazingly soft super fine yarn you'll want to keep touching. It's made with 70% wool and 30% silk giving it that smooth finish. Bamboo Pop is another soft yarn made of 50% cotton and 50% bamboo. You'll notice as I go through each of these yarns that their weights tend to differ. Cotton True Sport is a fine weight yarn made of 100% pima cotton; it's soft to the touch, but also seems like it's a good type of yarn to absorb wetness. Flax is a bit on the rougher side made of 100% linen. This will add a bit of texture to your project.

The Universal Jumble Set comes in four color options: Aqua, Lilac, Pink and Red, all of which have different shades and textures in each set. I can't express enough what a beautiful set this is; every knitter and crocheter should experience this at least once.

What is your favorite type of yarn to crochet with?
