LOVE!

I really like this yarn. It has its cons, but the pros outweigh. It's super soft, delicate, and while it's labeled a DK 3 weight, it's definitely more like a sport weight. I think that's the most important to keep in mind when gauging if this will work for a project that calls for DK weight yarn. I personally go this to make bookmarks, knowing it was lighter than typical DK. Splitting is an issue. I really love my inline hooks, but they catch a lot. Which is frustrating. That's honestly my biggest issue. I do wish they had some brighter, richer colors. But overall, I'm a fan!

Beautiful colors!

At first I found Truboo to be so difficult because of splitting. Once I discovered the right size hook for Truboo and the pattern (H hook) it’s been smooth sailing. I still have to be very careful but it’s so much better. I’m making the “Yarn Candy Scarf” and I’m enjoying the result very much. Thank you, LB!

I really liked working with this yarn. I used it to create amigurumi animals and my crochet hook just glided through the yarn. I was thrilled with the results. I do not know if this yarn can be washed or not, but I chose it mostly for the colors and weight for my projects.

Hello Debra - items made from Truboo can be machine washed but should be laid flat to dry. With a stuffed animal like an amigurumi we would suggest spot cleaning as the best method.

Silky & slippery

This is my first try with bamboo. It's a loose twist, which means some splitting. The yarn is really silky feeling. Although it's classed as a 3 weight, it's on the skinny end of a 3. I used a 4 mm hook. This yarn worked up beautifully, nice drape, but it was a bit slippery in my hands and kept getting away from my grip. (User issue?) the ball looked small, but I got a baby sweater and bonnet from just one skein. I haven't laundered it yet, but so far I like the product and would get it again.

A beautiful and soft yarn

A perfect summer top was created with this soft and beautiful yarn with a sheen. Cool and breezy. Just loved it.

Lovely shine

I’m making amigurumis with this yarn because I love the shiny effect it has, but I’m also very stubborn because it’s not the easiest yarn to make amigurumis with, I just can’t help myself 😆
