New Release Yarn Base
Merino Bamboo blend in a DK weight 8 ply yarn. This is a sister yarn to Merino Bamboo which is a fingering weight, 4 ply.
This blend of fibres is perfect for our Australian climate and suitable for all manner of knitting and crocheting. Garments like sweaters, cardigans, hats, scarves and shawls plus so much more, household items, blankets and due to the softness it is also lovely for baby items.
The 80% Merino is soft and has all the lovely properties you expect from fine Merino wool and the 20% 'raw' bamboo is sustainable, eco friendly processed fibre (unlike some other bamboo fibres). You can read more about this yarn here on our Yarn Bases page. The bamboo content in this yarn adds a little sheen to the fibre and is not rough like you might expect from a linen or other plant fibre. It is soft and has a nice drape to the finished garment. Gauge swatching is definitely recommended.
