One of the best things about knitting, other than having a relaxing hobby with which you can create beautiful and unique items for loved ones, is the constant discovery of new wools. This is most certainly the case with bamboo yarn which is still quite underused by many knitters, even those with many years of experience.
For those who have discovered this wonderful knitting product though, it has become incredibly popular - and it is easy to understand why. As well as having a lovely texture to it, it also has some rather unique qualities. For example, it is naturally anti-bacterial.
Produced from the grasses we typically associate with pandas, in its pure form bamboo yarn is also entirely biodegradable and offers UV protection. These are other great advantages of course, but as a pure clothing yarn, its ability to wear well is also a huge benefit.
With many of the best names in the knitting industry having their own bamboo blends on the market, it is easy to get knitting with this wonderful product. A little experience is probably best before tackling any big projects of course, but for toddlers clothing in particular, the wool is an excellent choice.
Bamboo yarn from the big names
Sirdar Snuggly Baby DK Bamboo yarn is one extremely popular example. Using its experience in the industry, Sirdar has made an incredibly soft and smooth yarn. Using a mix of soft lambswool too, the items can be put through a light machine wash, and still retain shape. Other excellent yarns to consider include Debbie Bliss Prima, Patons Mirage DK and the excellent Sublime Bamboo & Pearls DK.
