    Valley Yarns 5/2 Bamboo Natural

    Introducing Valley Yarns 5/2 Bamboo Natural! In a heavier weight than our fabulous 10/2 Bamboo, this undyed 5/2 yarn has 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. 5/2 Bamboo Natural is ready for dyeing, or use it as is for weaving or knitted lacework. 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.

    5/2 Bamboo is also available in colors.

    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.

      Comments about Valley Yarns 5/2 Bamboo Natural:

      I wish you'd re-introduce the 10/2 bamboo in all the colors available for 5/2! This is a great yarn, but I miss the finer, 10/2 weight.

      Excellent yarn for lightweight knits

      By Rachel

      from Santa Barbara, CA

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Delicate
      • Lightweight
      • Soft

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Lightweight Lacy Patterns

        Comments about Valley Yarns 5/2 Bamboo Natural:

        This yarn is ever so soft and has a silk-like sheen. I bought it to make a delicate top with a lace-like knitting pattern, and I'm very pleased with the way its coming out. My skin is very sensitive and I can't handle wool, so I chose the yarn with some care and I've not been disappointed. This is a good substitute for other organic fibers. It also doesn't shed fiber like some yarn types. I can't yet speak to how well it wears or washes, as I'm still working on this project.
