Beautiful Bamboo - Lettuce Be Green
Hand Spun Single Ply Yarn


THIS LISTING IS FOR TWO SKEINS OF THE COLOR SHOWN.

PRICE ALREADY INCLUDES DISCOUNT.

PLEASE NOTE - the skein shown in the pictures has sold, this listing is for ONE skein spun special for you*!
*May vary slightly from pictures!

If you purchase this listing, you will receive ONE skein of handspun bamboo yarn, spun by me from hand dyed bamboo fiber from Fiberlady, in new color "Soothing". Shades of green from light to a darker, but still bright shade. When I first saw this I thought of lettuce, hence the name, but the name is also in honor of my grandfather who loved punny things - say it out loud - Let-US BE GREEN! ;)

It will be most likely be spun sport to thinner sport weight. Yardage will vary from 130-200 yards depending on how thin it is spun. IF YOU HAVE A PREFERENCE, please note that in the "Notes to Seller" section when checking out. It will weigh approximately 4 oz.

Your yarn will be spun and mailed within 1-3 days of payment. I try to spin and ship within 24 hours, but that is not always possible. If you need this by a certain date, PLEASE contact me first.

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!
