Re: bamboo yarn

bamboo is an absorbant material like cotton or hemp, it doesn't work like wool.

Re: bamboo yarn

So the wool kind of soaks it up but then lets it dry out where the bamboo would just soak it up? I've always been confused by the soaking & repelling at the same time of wool, but I SO love it. I'm part way through crocheting my first Honeysuckle soakers (and getting way confused along the way!) I'm just starting to get into making my own stuff and found a fun site with all kinds of bamboo stuff on it and saw the yarn and it looked cool so I wondered what it'd be good for. I was thinking I could make some little doublers out of the material they had on there. Thanks more crafty mamas!
