Valley Yarns 5/2 Bamboo

Introducing Valley Yarns 5/2 Bamboo! In a heavier weight than our fabulous 10/2 Bamboo, this 5/2 yarn has the same deep, rich colors and the unique shine and drape of bamboo. You can feel good about the sustainability of bamboo, and you'll feel great about the look and feel of projects woven in this elegant fiber. Spun in Canada, dyed in the US.

Sett notes: Tabby, or plain weave, should be 16-18 epi in most cases. 18-20 epi is right for twill.  Although it is the same yards/lb. as 5/2 cotton, 5/2 bamboo behaves a little differently.

Care notes: On the first washing of dark colors or bright colors use a color catcher or dye magnet in the water.

5/2 Bamboo is also available in Natural.

Color Cards and Color Books for this yarn are available.

$1.50 per cone charge for wind-off service (for fractions of a pound).

Yarns sold by the pound may have their quantity adjusted before the order is sent to reflect the actual weight of what is being sent out. Each cone is approximately 1–1.25 lbs and will cost approximately $29.99–$37.50.

Note: Some cones in the Hummingbird color have stickers on the inside stating 5/2 cotton. Please disregard these stickers, the yarn is bamboo.
