HandSpun Bamboo Yarn - DragonWing
Kitty Grrlz HandSpun Bamboo Yarn

Here is a skein of handspun bamboo yarn, spun by me from 100% bamboo fiber - dyed by Fiberlady. This is colorway "Black Gold" and is similar to previous versions called "DragonStorm" and "DragonSong". Deep shades of varying dark greens, blue, purple, gold and orange/copper.

**I have THREE skeins available. PLEASE note which skein you would like in the Notes to Seller section during checkout. Listing is for ONE skein ONLY, if you would like more than one, please change the quantity during checkout. Thank you!**

Skein options, please choose one:
SKEIN 1: 160 yards, 4.1 oz/118 grams

Wraps per inch: 15-16
Gauge per inch: 5.5-6.75

Sport Weight, a bit thicker than the skeins I've had available recently

Bamboo fiber is made in a similar fashion to rayon, so is also known as "bamboo rayon" or "rayon from bamboo".

Bamboo is washable but due to the dyeing I would still wash this in cool water and air dry.

PLEASE NOTE - I try to capture the colors as best I can, but they may look different on your monitor. If you purchase one of my yarns and are not 100% happy with the colors, I do accept returns. You can see my full return policy in my policies section.

Bamboo is a renewable, sustainable resource that doesn't need herbicides/pesticides/excessive watering to grow - it is very plentiful and grows very fast. Due to the fiber structure of bamboo, it can absorb and evaporate sweat from human skin very quickly (thus making it very cool in summer!). Bamboo has the sheen, weight and drape of silk but much more durable! As wonderful as it is, please keep in mind that it has NO memory like WOOL does, so it may not be good for fitted knitting or crochet projects unless used with another yarn. But, for draping projects or projects where elasticity is not required, it is excellent! And SO soft and shiny!

All Kitty Grrlz items come from a NON-SMOKING, but a CAT-FRIENDLY home!
