Bambu 7 Cone Yarn
I’m currently using this to make a table runner for my cousin and I LOVE it! It’s beautiful, very soft, and easy to work with. I’m excited to see the finished product!
I have been using this yarn to weave scarves on my 8 harness floor loom. It weaves up beautifully and leaves with a finished product with both wonderful drape and sheen. Everyone who I have gifted these to adore them. My two complaints are that this yarn has several knots per a cone and that it does have a tendency to split. However obviously those two things are minor as I have bought over 10 cones and plan to buy more. 100% recommend.
It feels so nice, but I think it should be a #1 weight because it is a fingering weight isn’t even close to a #2 weight!!! If you want a #2 weight then you should probably order 2. Just saying! I will order the 2nd one because I need a #2 weight. If I would’ve known I would’ve have this complaint. Also the cone doesn’t have a label ( that I’m used to ) and the name of the color is on the inside of the cone. And the color I order was a lot darker than I expected. So beware!
I do not care for this yarn at all. It separates. It is difficult to crochet with. I have crocheted for over 30 years and this is the worst yarn I have ever used.
Hello Teresa - we're sorry that this yarn isn't working out for you! You may have tried this already, but we do recommend working with a blunt-tipped hook or needle when using plant fiber yarns like the Bambu 7.
Bambu 7 (and Bambu 12) are my favorites to weave with.
