Bamboo yarn has become increasingly popular among knitters in recent years with its luxuriously soft texture and hypoallergenic and UV protection properties. It has the ability to evaporate moisture, making it suitable for cool, breezy tops and shawls.
Cabled Fiber & Yarn has avoided Bamboo for many years due to the hazardous waste disposal practices reportedly used in some mills. Times change however and we are now comfortable carrying this amazing fiber. We always ask our yarn vendors to verify that the processes used for making bamboo rayon are environmentally sound.
