Elsebeth Lavold Bambool

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.

Pros

  • Dyed Evenly
  • Good Weight
  • Nice drape
  • Nice Sheen
  • Soft

Cons

  • Dulls some with wear

Best Uses

  • Scarves
  • Sweaters

Comments about Elsebeth Lavold Bambool:

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.

Haven't used it yet, because I thought it would be darker than it is. However, it was a good price, and I am sure that I will find some use for it.

Soft and shiny

Comments about Elsebeth Lavold Bambool:

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.

Not a worsted weight!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about Elsebeth Lavold Bambool:

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.
