As you may have noticed, I am crazy about natural fibers, especially vegetable ones. I live in a warm climate, so for me such properties of the yarn as breathable and absorbing moisture are essential. The cotton will always be my first love, but recently I got a few skeins of 100% bamboo yarn, just to try. It is natural and eco-friendly yarn, and it was about time I bought it. Well, what can I say? I am in love!!!
The yarn is incredibly soft. It just makes you squeeze it every time you pass by. I know, it’s crazy, but I am being honest. It has the subtle lustre, which, in combination with the neutral color, makes the yarn look very noble. This yarn is finger weight, so I decided to knit a swatch with two strands. The fabric turns out extremely soft (I can’t wait to knit something out of it to put on and never take off!) and drapery which will be perfect for a loose cardigan that “flows” around the body.
I will let you know what I am going to make with it as soon as I finish my other projects.
