        Great for both warp and weft. Weaves up with a beautiful hand...washes well with minimal shrinkage. True to color. Love bamboo paired with tencel.

            I used this to knit a sample and there was a lot of fuzz in the finished knitted lace. I wouldn't use it for knitting again but would use it for weaving however not in the warp.

              I am an avid weaver and enjoyed the two projects that I wove, a scarf in a twill pattern and a shawl in Diamond Diaper Lace.

                Comments about Valley Yarns 10/2 Bamboo:

                Thanks to a review that mentioned this yarn fuzzes up after washing, I twisted the fringe on the scarf. I washed it as though wool, with the wash and rinse water about the same temperature. The untwisted portions of the fringe didn't develop the halos that a rayon boucle I often use does.

                The yarn has less sheen than other bamboos I've used, which means it's less slippery to work with.

                Fun till it's washed

                Gorgeous on the cone, handles like a dream, drapes beautifully, but fuzzes up and loses its sheen when it's washed. I plan to dry clean future projects or do stuff that's OK if it fuzzes.

                Drapes like silk. Fantastic. I've done several items out of this. As an 8-harness pinwheel, I sett it at 35 epi, and it drapes like a dream.
