Be Sweet Bamboo

Be Sweet Bamboo is a beautiful bamboo yarn with a stunning sheen. The yarn is hand dyed, which creates vibrant colors with some slight variations. It is very soft, and would make a great camisole with an openwork pattern or lace scarf. Made in South Africa.

You've got to be kidding!

This ball of yarn would fit into the palm of a small child. I was SO embarrassed to have bought this for my wife.

    Comments about Be Sweet Bamboo:

    I made a lacy hat from this yarn for a friend losing her hair from chemo. I'm not used to knitting with silky yarn or lacy patterns, so it took me a few tries. Working with bamboo needles worked better for me since it held the yarn a bit better. The yarn catches the light beautifully and has very slight varigations in color which I like. It is so soft and lightweight; perfect for summer. I'm planning some socks with it. I think it would also be great for a lightweight summer vest or shawl.

    Cons

    • Fibers Separate Easily

    Best Uses

    • Scarves

    Comments about Be Sweet Bamboo:

    This colour is a very deep rich dimensional colour. Rather than being a flat solid there is a very dimensional almost textured quality to the colour. It gives the finished project a very high end look. Each project made from this yarn is unique because of the multidimensionality of the colour! In addition to the fantastic colour this yarn knits up extremely well. It is soft and light. Exquisite yarn!!!!!!

        Comments about Be Sweet Bamboo:

        SUPER soft yarn. I was freaked out for a second after putting my swatch in the wash at the stiffness, but after drying it was back to being extremely soft. This yarn also knits up very quickly; before I knew it I was half way done with the top I was making. I'd recommend using this for a spring/summer top because of the "cool" feel, kinda like silk (I used it for Rose Jordan's Andrea Tee on Ravelry and its a great spring top). It also has great drape. Although it's a little pricey, it's worth the investment (plus buying in bulk gives you a good discount on this website).

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery took almost 2 whole weeks (11 days) to ship, which was a bummer, but the yarn was still in good condition.

          Comments about Be Sweet Bamboo:

          I'm allegic to many fibers (mainly Acrylic and Wool) so this was a great option for me. I'm making a scarf and a pair of gloves at the moment and they are turning out beautifully and are suprisingly snuggly. The variation in the dye gives the finished product a kind of watercolor looking effect, its quite pretty. I would recommend this over and over! The only con is the price, its a little on the expensive side for me, but it turned out to be worth it!

          Bamboo by Sweet is a lovely yarn with a soft hand and nice drape. The jewel like colors are fabulous. It takes a bit of patience to work with but it is worth the effort. I recommend this yarn for accessories like cowl scarves.

            Used bamboo for a lovely, lacy scarf. Very soft yarn, and the dye color varies to add interest and beauty to the finished project.

                  This yarn drapes wonderfully, and I love its softness. So I'm buying as much as I can afford before this runs out! And I know this sounds nuts, but the way these balls are wound, I just leave it rather than ball it up.
