Bamboo ?!?


Final Result...


This one is a hard one to display, so it looks good.  It is very soft and drapes very well.  Bamboo was a very good fiber for this summer scarf.



My latest endeavor is a lace weave scarf that is made from Bamboo.  This is a wonderful, soft and easy to work with yarn.  I have put enough warp on for two scarfs and hope that they are good enough to give one away as a gift.










So, I am off to a good start !

  3. Hi Lynnette,

    The scarf is actually a Handwoven article that I modified from a shawl to a narrower scarf.

    Handwoven, Sept/Oct 2009, pg. 48-49

    Bamboo was awesome to work with, strong but soft. :-)
