I’m going to confess, this is my first time working with a %100 bamboo fibre. The result?
I LOVED it!
It was such a pleasure to work with – smooth and silky which means it glides over the crochet hook. It was also great for tearing out! The yarn didn’t snag after making revision after revision. The final result is quite cool and smooth to the touch making this scarf a perfect accessory for the warmer weather of Spring and Summer.
I picked up this yarn while visiting the Woodstock Fleece Festival in Ontario Canada (You can read about the experience HERE) and have been eyeing it ever since. Knowing I had only the one skein, I knew the design would have to be a more lacy design and I would be limited in it’s size. But I am happy with this one!
I look forward to visiting T&K Fibres and More again – they do have an online shop (HERE) where you’ll find more colours of the yarn I used in this design. If you would like to learn more about them they can also be found on social media. I love hand dyed fibres – the colours are unique and exclusive, not to mention luxurious!
As mentioned, I’ve worked up this scarf in a %100 bamboo fibre, if you are looking for a non-bamboo alternative I would recommend a mercerised cotton or really any other DK (light) weight yarn.
The pattern will be written out in full and you may add it to your pattern libraries or purchase an ad free PDF through my Etsy and Ravelry shop linked below (Will open in a new tab):
