This single ply yarn was spun from 100% bamboo fiber that was hand dyed by
FiberLady, here on etsy. Her 'Summer Shades' colorway is a mellow blend of
blue, yellow, purple with shades of green, highlighted by the sheen of the fiber.
This yarn has the sheen of silk and the easy care of cotton. Bamboo is cool in hot
weather, quickly absorbs moisture, naturally renewable, bactericidal and has the most
incredible shine and softness.
Unlike wool though, it has no memory so it isn't suitable for fitted garments where elasticity
is required.

According to the manufacturer:
Bamboo is a very environmentally friendly fiber.
They are so fast growing that they have been known to grow over 3 feet overnight.
Bamboo has an unique anti-bacteria agent and this agent has been shown to last
for many washings.
Bamboo is naturally pest resistant and can be grown without the need for pesticides.
Due to the fiber structure of bamboo with it's micro-holes, it can absorb and evaporate
sweat from human skin in a fraction of a second.
As if all of that wasn't enough, bamboo has the sheen, weight and drape of silk. Bamboo
is more alkaline tolerant than silk and is not harmed by the aluminum in antiperspirants
as silk is.

I've spun this yarn on Minerva, my Lendrum DT wheel, in a smoke free environment.
