    I've had 6 skeins of this yarn for the past 7 months. I've started and stopped knitting several different projects with this yarn. I don't like how it feels - almost seems like it needs a fine silk/mohair to knit it with in order to get the feel that I like.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Lana Bambu:

      Used this to knit two cowls--the yarn felt coarse and was a bit splitty. Definitely easier to knit on Addi Click needles than on bamboo. What a wonderful outcome, however. Blocks beautifully. Hid mistakes. Turned out to be a gorgeous color, and--after blocking--soft with a nice drape. Just right for cowls.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Lana Bambu:

      I love the way this handles during knitting. It blooms and blocks beautifully. It is warm, but not heavy.

      My criticism is that every single skein (I've used more than 20) has had at least one join in it and about half have had two. Sometimes the joins are only a few yards into the skein.

                I used this yarn for a circular bolero and it turned out wonderfully. It wears well with minimal pilling. I'm ordering it again for a men's cardigan.

                    I needed a yarn to supplement a sweater (since I didn't buy enough of the original yarn I was knitting up) and I wish I had simply knit the whole thing out of this yarn. It was so yummy, great drape and it worked great!

                        While the yarn is beautiful and a pleasure to knit, skeins tend to vary in saturation from one end to the other, peridot in particular, making the change to a new ball of yarn obvious.
