Bamboo Add to My Favorites
South West Trading Company offers outstanding, high quality "Bamboo" as one of their outstanding innovative fibers series. Created by processing the bamboo grass stalk and combing the fiber strands from the actual plant itself, this yarn is 100% bamboo with nothing else added! Often compared to premier ramie, it's cool and silky to the touch and works up beautifully in sweaters, tops, dresses, skirts, and anything else where a flowing drape is important.

Fascinating yarn. A bit scratchy to wear next to the skin - but useful for vests, placemats, etc.

I hate this yarn. It looks like it has split ends and is scratchier than all hell. Especially the blue.
