Yarn is very soft but can be difficult to knit as it is composed of 16 very fine threads loosely spun together. It is easy to miss one or two threads when inserting you needle. Also, make sure to soak and block your swatch as my gauge changed considerably and affected the fit of the garment I was knitting.
So soft... pure joy to knit with it!
This is my first time using a Bamboo yarn and Truboo is absolutely wonderful! It is very soft and has a wonderful sheen it. I'm a confident beginner/intermediate crocheter and I did have a learning curve when I began using it as it's slippery and can get splitty. But I quickly adjusted to crocheting with it and so far the garment I'm working is turning out well. I can't wait to buy more colours for other projects.
I love the smoothness of the yarn but one draw back with the intricate pattern I am doing this yarn splits easily, but it is knitting up nicely and has a great drape to it.
The colour is accurate to the picture and the bamboo yarn feels silky and soft! It does fray VERY easily, I had trouble with the initial cast on, but otherwise it doesn't bother me too much.
This yarn is incredibly soft with a lovely sheen. Excellent stitch definition.
This yarn, made from bamboo, has a lovely silky feel. It knits easily and smoothly and there is no splitting of the thread. I had to rip out a portion of the work and it came undone with no trouble. Knitting it back left no indication of the previous work. The slate colour has a definite sheen which draws attention to the shape of the stitches.
