I love the 100% bamboo I just worked with. However: it is not very stretchy when knitting, and can be a little slippery on metal needles.

For me it knitted smoothly. I had very little trouble with splitting (something I do have sometimes with other multi-ply yarns). the garment had a nice sheen. (it is almost done- IK's camisole)

I also crocheted an edge with it and that worked well too. I had a little trouble working in the ends, b/c the yarn didn't stretch and "hide" the end as well as I like, but I'm new at that and need practice.

Have fun!!
