Berroco Bonsai

A subtle shimmer makes Berroco Bonsai truly unique, the result of alternating bands of satiny shine and sophisticated matte tape. You'll love the feel of the soft bamboo, and you'll certainly appreciate the addition of the nylon to make Berroco Bonsai durable enough to use on garments from spring through fall. Made in Turkey.

        Comments about Berroco Bonsai:

        I have used this yarn three different times to make shawls for gifts. The ribbon look lends itself to the lacy pattern I used. The recipients of the gifts have really liked the way it conforms to their body shape. Shipment arrived in a very timely manner.

          I made scarves with Bonsai. The sheen makes the knitting look special and expensive. I love telling people that it's made out of bamboo!

                Yarn was used for scarves and sold at work. They went over big. Infinity Scarves were great in this yarn.

                  I use this yarn as an accent in scarves made with multiple yarns, including hand-spun and many novelty yarns. It adds a beautiful texture and color.

                  Comments about Berroco Bonsai:

                  The yarn turned out beautiful in the lacy sweater I made with it, however, I had a terrible time with making it into a usable skein. It knotted and slipped so badly, that I had to roll each ball by hand, and then it fell apart by the center of each ball.
