We are regularly asked which of our yarn ranges work well when creating socks so we have created a new sock yarn without adding nylon but instead we have used Bamboo and named it Bam-boozle.
Bamboo is a great substitute fibre to use in sock knitting, as it is antibacterial, hypoallergenic, thermo-regulating and absorbs moisture. For this charming worsted spun blend we have added 20% bamboo with 40% of Romney and 40% of BFL. These qualities make it a perfect yarn for lightweight summer garments and accessories, and it will give you an extra layer during the winter. It’s a wonderful and dreamy yarn to work with, giving a distinctive stitch definition, Ideal for socks, lacy cardigans, shawls, and light weight sweaters. We have sourced our bamboo from a contact within the UK.
We are introducing this range as a Limited Edition in a small selection of shades and depending on the response from our valued customers we will consider putting more batches into production. If you have bought some recently we would love to hear your feedback and to see what you have created.
