Valley Yarn 5/2 Bamboo is a fantastic part of our weaving 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.
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.

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.
