This listing is for two hanks of premium 100% bamboo yarn. Each hank weighs about 97 grams and is about 170 yards, for a total of 195 grams (6.9 oz) and 340 yards. It's extremely soft, with a nice sheen. I'm offering this yarn at a much lower price than two years ago because I got a substantial discount on the international freight charges.

The color of this bamboo yarn is a lovely off-white eggshell or ivory - it is not a bright white. Instead of plies, this yarn is a flat tape, about 1/8" (4 mm) wide; I recommend size US 10 needles. Limited additional quantities are available, if you need more for your project just convo me and I'll set up a listing for you.

In the interest of full disclosure, unlike my recycled yarns, this bamboo yarn is not a fair trade item. In the past I limited myself to fair trade organizations, but that prevented me from obtaining certain types of eco-friendly yarns whose processing requires machinery typically owned by large factories. I selected this particular Chinese factory because of their progressive attitude regarding women in the workplace. Most Chinese factories that I worked with in my prior career as a fashion designer were staffed largely by young Asian women who had no opportunity for career advancement; all management positions were held by men. The factory that produced this bamboo yarn has female executives.

The shipping rates quoted below are for USPS First Class. For a small additional fee, I can also ship via Priority Mail (within the US, Priority Mail for this item would cost $4.90). International buyers: convo me for a shipping quote if your country is not listed below, if you prefer Priority Mail, or if you want to buy multiple items.
