Patons Silk Bamboo Yarn
A specialty material manufactured by one of the larger brands, this yarn combines silk and bamboo for a super-soft feel. Its slightly lighter than the standard worsted-weight, but the Silk Bamboo brand comes in a medium-weight yarn and can be used in a variety of patterns and styles from scarves to sweaters and jackets. Each skein comes with 2.2 oz., or 102 yards, of yarn, so most projects will require a number of skeins to complete. For the size, its more expensive than Patons other wool, cotton, or synthetic blends, but it gets high ratings and offers a range of vivid colors. For a unique combination and an eco-friendly fiber, knitters might find the brand worth a try.
