A brand spanking new bamboo & cotton yarn that is great for summer socks but also for garments and accessories. Lovely long colour changes and an interesting texture make it super-exciting! It has a soft handle that feels lovely next to the skin and makes a lightweight fabric that's just right for the warmer days - or holidays!
A standard 4ply, it can be used for any King Cole 4ply pattern and indeed just about any other 4ply - do check your tension though, as usual. Not just for knitting - it's great to crochet with as well.
You could also use this for any yarn where the pattern can be easily adapated for different thicknesses - Vixter Woolista shawls especially - "Hey Jude," "Island Love Child" or virus shawls and granny triangle shawls. In fact think of two big granny squares, joined at the side and shoulders - that's it, that's all you need to make a summer top!
Each 100g ball contains a whopping 450m of 55% bamboo, 37% cotton and 8% PBT (a man-made fibre that adds durability, especially useful for socks).
You can find the patterns over in our "Patterns" section.
