PurBamboo{hl} is a heavy lace weight yarn of 100% bamboo, spun in Canada, distributed in the US, and dyed by me in Atlanta. Each skein is 150 grams (635m / 694yd).

PurBamboo is a fabulous and less expensive alternative to silk - shiny and lush, yet easy to wind and work. It’s dense - it weighs in like a fingering or sock weight but knits as a heavy lace - and the drape is divine. It just feels good to knit and to wear. This is not a stretchy yarn. PurBamboo blocks beautifully and is perfect for weaving, knitting, and crochet.

Hand washing is recommended. The dyes I use are low-impact Procion MX fiber reactive dyes, the same that I use for all dyedianadye garments and accessories. I use a cold water process, randomly distributing color, often in multiple baths to produce a glazed and layered effect. The result is no regular striping or predictable pooling.

All skeins within a lot or between lots will vary from one other. If your garment requires more than a single skein, consider alternating between skeins.

Caking and gift bagging your skein is a DtO option.
