but late for this, but I’ve been struggling with the idea o using bamboo as a fabric, which is mostly knit/jersey when I am also trying to use sculptural/tailored elements..
Quite cool though, knitting with bamboo yarn, to create something that looks quite sculptural
note though - bamboo has anti-bacterial properties, perfect for my garments, I am looking at leggings and under garments at the moment, so bamboo is a great choice of fabric, especially when worn close to skin
Knitting bamboo from bam boo
I love this idea! It’s a scarf, knitted in a bamboo pattern that’s actually made from the bamboo yarn, bam boo. Just look at the perfect regularity of the pattern - it’s wonderfully sculptural, just like the plant itself!
Bamboo is a bit of a wonder-fabric for two main reasons: firstly, it has naturally antibacterial properties, so it’s perfect for making garments that sit close to the skin. Secondly, it’s quite incredibly green: bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on the planet, and thrives in harsh environments, meaning it can be cultivated on otherwise barren land. It also has very little need for pesticides, so almost all bamboo you buy is organic. If that’s sold you, you can order bam boo yarn from Elite Yarns Inc.
