Soft Bamboo Fine
2 ply, 3 ply70% Bamboo, 23% Cotton, 7% Acrylic
Soft Bamboo Fine is a fantastically soft and unique quality!
The thread consists of 70% bamboo, which makes the yarn the softest you have ever experienced and gives it a special light weighted feel. It is pleasant on the skin and is therefore also a very child friendly yarn, which has a great dimensional stability. The bamboo’s fibers are naturally silky soft and smooth – which makes the thread incredibly delicate. The texture and silk-like properties give knitted projects a beautiful fall. The 23% cotton and 7% acrylic help to hold the soft bamboo fibers together and give the yarn a good shape retention.
The yarn is applicable to all types of knitting and crocheting, but especially for baby things, wraps, blankets, and shawls. The AZO certificate validates that the yarn has undergone a regime of tests and has been approved according to applicable European legislation.
Bamboo and the environment – bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and is therefore a fantastic source of sustainable production.
Bamboo releases more oxygen than any other plant and grows without the use of pesticides.
Soft Bamboo comes in two thicknesses – “fine” and “double”. Soft Bamboo Fine consists of 6 x 2 fine threads and runs 180 meters (197 yds) on 50g (1.75 oz) – recommended needles 3 – 3.5. Soft Bamboo Double consists of 9 x 2 fine threads and runs 115 (126 yds) meters on 50g (1.75 oz) – and we recommend needles 3-4.
In other words, if you want to make a slightly ‘lighter’ knit or crocheted project, then we recommend using “fine”. However, if you wish to make a sweater that is good all year round, then we recommend using “double”.
Please note that we are currently changing the yarn label on this yarn. This means that you can receive one of the ’old’ yarn labels under the name ‘Soft’ or one of the new yarn labels under the name ‘Soft Bamboo Fine’. The yarn is exactly the same.
On some of the skeins, there might still be a yarn label with washing instructions for handwashing. However, these can certainly be machine-washed on 40°C / 104°F.

I've recently received this, but as yet haven't knitted with it. The yarn is lovely and soft with a beautiful sheen. The colour I chose is Rosa which is gorgeous. Having just been knitting with pure silk there is a similarity with the sheen of this yarn and I suspect the definition will also be very good. I've found the perfect pattern for this andI can't wait to get started!
Very soft wool and very good price and good service
Loved it so soft and very good to work with
