bamboo wool blend yarn
Has anyone used a wool bamboo blend yarn?
Can you tell me about it, please?
How did it hold up to washing?
Is is soft?
Does it hold its shape after wearing or does it stretch out?
What brand is it?
Thanks so much!!!

Not all yarns are created equal so it's impossible to say. Do you have a specific yarn in mind? That might be easier for someone to help you with.

ETA: Not bamboo, but I tried Moda Dea silk 'n wool blend and it was horribly itchy. I'm pretty sure the quality of wool in the blend was a low end one.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

I've not tried a wool blend but I have worked with Caron's Spa yarn at 25% bamboo, 75% acrylic. It's very soft with a beautiful drape and held up to washer/dryer. It split like crazy though.

Would you be talking about a yarn like this?

I haven't tried Bamboo yarn but from reading user comments it seems that bamboo yarns have a nice drape in general. This may be different for certain brands though.

Thanks everyone.
I didn't have a specific brand in mind. I saw some at the LYS but I don't remember the brand. Also, I have seen a few brands on the internet. I just wanted to know in general if the two fibers were good together or not.
