Soft Bamboo Double is a super soft mix of bamboo and cotton. Add a little bit of acrylic!
The thread consists of 70% bamboo, which makes the yarn the softest you have ever experienced and gives it a special light weighted feel. It is pleasant on the skin and is therefore also a very child friendly yarn, which has a great dimensional stability. The bamboo’s fibers are naturally silky soft and smooth – which makes the thread incredibly delicate. The texture and silk-like properties give knitted projects a beautiful fall. The 23% cotton and 7% acrylic help to hold the soft bamboo fibers together and give the yarn a good shape retention.
We absolutely recommend Soft Bamboo Double for crocheting projects for e.g. baby things. The AZO certificate validates that the yarn has undergone a regime of tests and has been approved according to applicable European legislation.
Bamboo and the environment – bamboo is the fastest growing plant in the world and is therefore a fantastic source of sustainable production.
Bamboo releases more oxygen than any other plant and grows without the use of pesticides.
Soft Bamboo comes in two thicknesses – “fine” and “double”. Soft Bamboo Fine consists of 6 x 2 fine threads and runs 180 meters (197 yds) on 50g (1.75 oz) – recommended needles 3 – 3.5. Soft Bamboo Double consists of 9 x 2 fine threads and runs 115 (126 yds) meters on 50g (1.75 oz) – and we recommend needles 3-4.
In other words, if you want to make a slightly ‘lighter’ knit or crocheted project, then we recommend using “fine”. However, if you wish to make a sweater that is good all year round, then we recommend using “double”.

This yarn is so soft and shiny! I am making a blanket for my husband with it. The only difficulty with it is that the strands make it a bit challenging not the split the yarn while knitting. The pattern I used was Ina Wendrock’s pattern from Ravelry called “Tahesha the Dragoness”. I haven’t wet blocked the square yet so it’s a bit uneven (this was also my first attempt to make something this complex). I will be adding the photo ( I don’t know how to attach it to my review on this site.)
Oķ, so this yarn is divine to handle...so soft and silky with amazing drape. I bought it to make baby wear and its certainly soft enough for that. One word of warning though, it does knit fine for a double knit. Suggest going down a couple of needle sizes and treating it closer to a 6ply than 8ply, unless you want fairly open fabric. Will certainly enjoy using the rest of my order for against the skin garments...just using a 3.5mm needle🙂
This bamboo yarn is beautiful. I’ve used other brands of bamboo and found this is better quality with a tighter wrap on the yarn if that makes sense. It splits less as a result. It’s incredibly soft, beautiful rich colour and gives projects a lovely drape and stitch definition.
The yarn is just as I hoped -- supple and with a soft sheen. The color selection was just as it appeared on the website, which isn't always the case when ordering online. I'm making a light summer sweater and can't wait to see it finished! Thank you Hobbii!
soooo soft! really luxurious and a beautiful weight. my biggest complaint is that each skein has 1-2 badly done knots that i have to stop and fix, but the yarn itself is beautiful and great quality.
