Bomballa – 100% Bamboo

Bomballa 100% Bamboo

Bomballa – our 100 % Bamboo yarn

We searched hard to find a 100% bamboo yarn for your warmer weather knitting. It comes in 100 gram hanks (approximately 250 metres or 270 yards) or on cones of approximately one kilo.  It is a classic double knitting weight, and the swatch below was knitted on 4 mm needles (US size 6) and has a gauge of 20 stitches per 10 cm (4 inches).  

This yarn has a chain construction similar to SWTC Bamboo, and and has a silky hand with an excellent drape. It is machine washable in warm or cool water (gentle or wool cycle only). The sample was dyed with Procion MX fiber reactive dyes (color bluish purple) following the instructions here.  We do not recommend acid dyes on our 100% Bamboo yarns – instead dyes should be used that specify suitability for cotton fibres.

Bamboo has excellent anti-bacterial properties, and is a vegan fiber from sustainable resources. Wholesale prices apply to orders of 5 kg (11 pounds) and you can order this yarn alone, or you can mix or match with our other yarns.
