I’ve mentioned that I was getting a small amount of Bamboo DK-wt. yarn. This is 100% Bamboo, viscose (rayon type), DK weight, about 225 yards apiece.
Most of these were dyed the ‘normal’ way, mixing the dyes into a wet solution to create single colors. The pair on the fair left, however, were dyed use the dry-dye technique that I’ve been using on the Phydlbitz recently. You can see in the close-up shots further down how the dye molecules that were blended to create a single-color wet dye have remained separate to create a different effect. 🙂
Also, as a rayon-type yarn, these are drying with a lovely but subtle sheen, and should knit up with a terrific drape on a size 6 needle.
These are taking a little longer to dry than my wool yarns, but they will be ready to ship on Thursday. I’m not planning to order any more of this particular yarn (except by special request, of course), so if you want to play with some 100% Bamboo yarn, this is the time to claim it. 🙂
Just send me an email, tell me which ones you want, and I’ll send you a Paypal invoice. Soon as that is paid, I’ll prepare your shipping label so they are ready to go when this batch is dried and processed. I didn’t mark them such, but each pair is a matching Twinset, dyed together in the same pouch, so they will work together. And if you claim a Twinset today or tomorrow (Tuesday or Wednesday) I’ll give you 10% off the pair.
