I finally finished this gorgeous scarf I have been working on for a while now. It is truly a work of art. Made from organic bamboo yarn, and handknit into a beautiful fishtail design.
Look into her eyes and you will see the prettiest green there ever was. Look into this scarf and see a beauty that surpasses those that have tried to compare. This beautiful organic bamboo scarf was handknit by me, measuring approximately 60" by 5" I absolutely love working with bamboo, as I think it is soft and earth friendly. This bamboo is also fair trade, made without sweatshop labor, where the workers are paid a fair wage.
Why bamboo? * Bamboo is a renewable resource. Bamboo can be harvested without killing the plant, and it only takes a few months before the plant is ready to be harvested again. That makes it an environmentally friendly choice. * Bamboo yarn, when not mixed with unnatural fibers, is biodegradable. * This Bamboo yarn is dyed with more natural dyes that are safer for the environment, low impact dyes. * Bamboo fabric is naturally antibacterial. * Bamboo also has ultra-violet protective properties. * Fabric knitted with bamboo is quite breathable and cool and has great drape, therefore great for any season * Bamboo has a good luster, similar to mercerized cotton. * Bamboo is strong, flexible, and can be softer than silk when spun into yarn.
