I'm in love :inlove:. I've been giggling as I look at (and touch) my 1860 yards of Woobu; Blue Moon Fiber Arts' merino/bamboo sport-weight blend. The colorway is Raven clan - Corbie (black w/ indigo and evergreen).
49890
Bamboo doesn't take up the dye as readily as wool, so the colors are muted and silvery. It's so soft and the sheen from the bamboo is so pretty!
This will become a sweater for me; I'm planning to do the Lady February Sweater. Or leave it as is...and just pet it.

Oooh I like that! I am knitting a lacy baby dress with a bamboo/merino (80-20). Very interested in finding out how it will was. Post pics of the sweater when you get going. I would love to see how it looks!

Looks very petable, but I'd love to know what you think about it as a sweater.

Will you have to double up to knit the Ladie Sweater, or use smaller needles?

On Ravelry, someone knitted the sweater in BMFA's heavy-weight Socks That Rock (Thraven colorway) which has about the same gauge as Woobu and used a size US 7. I don't plan on doubling it.

You won't enjoy knitting with that, just send it to me and save yourself the trouble.
