Bamboo yarn has become increasingly popular among knitters in recent years due to its eco-friendly properties and luxuriously soft texture. It comes from the Asian bamboo tree and can be harvested without actually killing the plant, making it a sustainable option.
Bamboo has plenty of other great qualities; not only is it renewable and biodegradable, it also has hypoallergenic and UV protection properties. It has the ability to evaporate moisture, making it suitable for cool, breezy garments like shawls.
The durability and flexibility of this yarn make it a preferred material among many knitters. Its natural elasticity and softness mean it’s ideal for creating summer garments and items for babies and toddlers too.
All yarn skeins are one of a kind even though they are dyed according to the same recipe and in the same dye bath. This is what makes hand-dyed yarns so unique, just like you are.
For dyeing, I have used professional fiber reactive dye that binds to the material so that the dye and the yarn become one. This makes the color extremely colorfast and fade-resistant.
I have rinsed each skein thoroughly by hand, but despite that, a little bleeding can occur at the first wash, as it is with all hand-dyed yarn.
