Valley Yarns 5/2 Bamboo is a fantastic part of our weaving line! This 5/2 yarn has a palette of deep, rich colors with the unique shine and drape of rayon from bamboo. You can feel good about the sustainability of bamboo, and enjoy the look and feel of projects woven in this elegant fiber. Although this yarn has the same yards per pound as 5/2 Cotton, 5/2 Bamboo behaves a little differently due to the nature of the fiber itself. Valley Yarns 5/2 Bamboo is spun and dyed in the United States.
Sett notes: Tabby, or plain weave, should be 16-18 epi in most cases while 18-20 epi is right for twill.
Care notes: On the first washing of dark colors or bright colors use a color catcher or dye magnet in the water.
5/2 Bamboo is also available in Natural.
Color Cards and Color Books for this yarn are available.

Note: Some cones in the Hummingbird color have stickers on the inside stating 5/2 Cotton. Please disregard these stickers, the yarn is 5/2 Bamboo.
