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.

Was looking for a thin yarn with a little shine to crochet a summer poncho. This is working. Only problem was that I ordered daffodil and it is darker shade than it looked on computer. I have since ordered another in ecru (which wasn't available when I ordered daffodil). I will save the daffodil for another project and get started with the ecru.

      Love This Stuff!!

      By 

      from Myrtle Beach SC

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Beautiful stitch definition; wonderful drape.

      Cons

      • Just a little "scrunchy" feeling (I love it)

      Best Uses

      • Beautiful lace where you need lots of yardage

      Comments about 5/2 Bamboo is also available in Natural.Color Cards  and Color Books for this yarn are available. 5/2 Bamboo:

      Pretty much said it all in pros and cons, but to me, this is just perfect lace yarn with all the characteristics that I love - a bit heavier than lace, with a lovely sheen, luscious jewel tone colours, great stitch definition, beautiful drape and lots of yardage for a reasonable price. I needed 3100+ yards for a "just want to do this" Shetland lace wrap that I need like a hole in the head and this is just perfect without breaking the bank. It does have a bit of a "scrunchy" feel to it which might bother some (??) but I love how it knits up and the stitch definition is wonderful!

      I ordered 2 cones of this yarn, red purple and grey blue. Both colors are just gorgeous. I have not made anything with the yet, but plan to use it as lace weight yarn. It feels very soft, and I believe it would work well making a beaded shawl. I am giving this a 4 only because I have not worked with it yet, but hope to do so very soon.
