Sumptuously soft bamboo yarn is ideal for knitting or crocheting breathable knitwear, such as light, airy shawls and garments for babies and toddlers. Bamboo yarn is made from Asian bamboo. It's biodegradable and is harvested without killing the plant, so it's a very sustainable choice. Bamboo yarns are also hypoallergenic, so they're an excellent option for anyone who's allergic to wool. Bamboo yarn is spun in a variety of weights and comes in an array of lovely colours with a subtle, natural sheen. It's beautiful to knit with and bamboo's moisture-wicking properties make it the ideal summer yarn.
