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

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!
