Just bought new yarn
Went to a bigger yarn shop in one of our biggest cities in Israel and looked for some interesting yarn. Was disappointed at how limited it was. No silk, no organic cotton, no special wools, only thin cotton. Well, it was almost a waste of time exccept I found this in pic. below.

What can I make with it? It's 70% bamboo 30% cotton suitable for needles size 3 to 4 mm which is about 4/5 US if I'm not mistaken.

What's this yarn like? I have no idea.

Thanks for your suggestions.
Tamar

Maybe a scarf or a hat. You could do them striped, too.

Well.. I am a big fan of double stranding. ... maybe knit them together and see what kind of pattern you come up with..
maybe a hat or baby booties

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!!
