We’re excited to announce that two new yarns have just arrived, well-suited to the warm weather of the season. Say hello to Universal Bamboo Pop and Bamboo Pop Sock!
Both Bamboo Pop and Bamboo Pop Sock are smooth, soft, plant fiber yarns, composed of bamboo and cotton.
Bamboo Pop is a DK weight, with a suggested gauge of 5.25 – 6 stitches per inch on needles between US 5 and 7. It’s composed of 50% cotton and 50% bamboo, plant fibers that are lustrous and have beautiful drape. These qualities make Bamboo Pop ideal for summer accessories and tops. Consider Churchmouse’s “Simple Tee,” Shellie Anderson’s “Nova,” or Courtney Kelley’s “Sonora.”
Bamboo Pop Sock is a fingering weight yarn, composed of 55% bamboo, 37% cotton, and 8% nylon – an addition that gives the yarn enough elasticity to make socks. It comes in self-patterning colorways, for simple knitting and fun results.
Come by the shop to plan your warm-weather knitting! We look forward to seeing you there.
