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 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. 5/2 Bamboo Natural is ready for dyeing, or use it as is for weaving or knitted lacework. Spun in Canada.
Sett notes: Tabby, or plain weave, should be 16-18 epi in most cases, with a sett of 18-20 epi being appropriate for twill. Although it is the same yards/lb. as 5/2 cotton, 5/2 bamboo behaves a little differently due to the nature of bamboo itself.
5/2 Bamboo is also available in a beautiful range of colors.
Color Cards and Color Books for this yarn are available.
