Elsebeth Lavold Bambool is a lovely blend of 80% bamboo and 20% merino. The soft merino is made even more so with the addition of the bamboo. The bamboo in Elsebeth Lavold Bambool also adds just the slightest sheen. This worsted weight yarn is a great choice for your next project. Made in China.
This is a great alternative to a silk blend yarn. The bamboo adds sheen and drape while the wool provides a soft, substantial base. The weight makes it great for knitting or crocheting garments, and the rich color choices lend to creativity in design.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I bought Bambool in Cherrywood and it turned out to be a darker color than you see on the web. But the color was unexpectedly lovely to me, so I was content. I also agree with other reviewer that it is a lighter weight than worsted.
This yarn looks beautiful, but I was not able to use it because it was described as a worsted weight, and it is definitely not. Looks like a DK. I had to send it back b/c I thought I was getting worsted weight which I needed for my project, and this is obviously a DK. Also, beware of the colors pictured here. I ordered the colorway Petrol b/c it looked turquoise, and it turned out to be a true teal, much darker than the photo and a totally different color.
