Brassard Bamboo 8/2
Bamboo yarn made from bamboo fibre using a similar manufacturing process to rayon. Bamboo is a fast growing plant that grows without fertilisers and pesticides and can withstand harsh conditions. Being promoted as one of the new fibres for the future, fabric made from it has antimicrobial properties, absorbs and wicks away moisture faster than cotton and resists creasing. It is also totally biodegradable. Processed to give a very smooth and silky finish. It is cool to the touch and has a lovely drape, making it very suitable for shawls and scarves whether woven, knitted or crocheted. This count is slightly thicker than the Xie Bamboo, but this is virtually indistinguishable when woven together. The colour range of 22 shades is repeated in the 16/2 count. It is supplied on a 227g spool, approximately 1530m/1680yards 227g/8oz per spool. Average needle/hook size between 2.5 and 3.25mm depending on project. Hand wash, dry flat.
