Bamboo Yarn

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. 

We stock bamboo yarn in a variety of sumptuous colours and weights to suit different project types, so grab yours today.
