5/2 Bamboo is a fantastic part of our Valley Yarns line! This 5/2 yarn has the deep, rich colors and the unique shine and drape of rayon from 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. 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.

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.

$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.

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

Purchased 4 cones for a large project. Many dropped stitches until I became familiar with size/weight of yarn. Probably would have chosen a simpler project had I known. Am concerned about care & use of product after all the work. Takes one full week per item. Thats 30 weeks of my life and can only work so long before it affects my eyesight. But the finished product is absolutely fabulous. Beautiful, consistent color. Have no reservations about my choice. Customer service was wonderful helping me decide he quantity that I needed to order. Appears to be "right on" estimate! Seven 60" scarves per cone I need 30.

I was excited to get this yarn since I love bamboo, and because this product is from Canada. I was disappointed when I opened the box with many different colors and found that the yarn texture is uneven. It looked as if it was hand spun by a beginner. When I knit it up, it didn't have the sheen or softness of other bamboo I have. I have lots of it--bought it during the last big Webs sale, thinking it would be good for my higher end garments in a good variety of colors. Guess I'll need to find some other uses for it for my own wear, and go back to the product made outside of America for things I sell.

Comments about VALLEY YARNS 5/2 Bamboo:

While I love this yarn with its beautiful colors and sheen, it is going to be just a bit to big for most of my work. I will be gladly using it where appropriate, however. I'd love to see this in a 6/2 weight.

    I like weaving with bamboo. It makes drapery cloth, can make a shimmering effect. Can be easily be used with silk.
