8/2 Bamboo Scarf

8/2 bamboo yarn scarf

When we get new yarns in, I always like to try them to see how they perform. I am happy to report that I am hooked on this 8/2 bamboo yarn. It was very easy to weave with and even though I had quite a bit tension on it I had not a single warp thread or the floating salvage break.

Hard to capture in an image, but this hand woven bamboo scarf has an iridescent quality to it. It just simply shimmers. This weaving pattern is an 8 harness twill, but other twills will work just the same. Colors are Magenta and Turquoise. Lengh of warp 6.5 yards, with in reed 8.5 inches, 7.5 after shrinkage. Set at 24 dpi, 12 dent reed. I used just one tube of each color and still have some left over.

Happy Weaving, Bridget
