Bambu7 is a Rayon derived from 100% bamboo cellulose. This yarn has 2100 yards per pound. It is similar in size to a 5/2 cotton.
Typical setts for plain weave are 16 epi and twill at 18 epi.
This yarn is lovely for garments and blankets. It's breathable and lightweight and makes an ideal fiber for baby blankets as no pesticides or fertilizers are used in it's production.
We also carry Bambu12, a finer version, that is often paired as an overshot warp and tabby thread with the Bambu 7 as the pattern yarn.
Bambu7 is priced at $3 per ounce. We wind into balls based on the ounces ordered. If you want Bambu7 by the cone, contact us for available cone weights and we'll also offer a discount for 16 ounces and over.
We also carry several variegated colors in Bambu7. See related products below.
