This yarn was carefully crafted purposely for summer and swim wear. Because of the main blend (bamboo) the thread itself is super thin, light, and soft. The thread as soft as the silk is. Working with this blend, you will be surrounded by thousands of positive amotions. The thread absorbs moisture very well, that means it will dry very fast as well. Wearing a garment crafted off this yarn, your skin will keep "breathing" and you won't get hot even during super sunny days.
It has an elastic texture which is the main option to be used for bikinis.
Summer tops, dresses, cover ups, shorts, kimonos, skirts will look gorgeous crocheted or knitted out of this bamboo stretchy yarn.
This elastic bamboo yarn is shown in red color in this listing, but also available in other cute tones. Check out other listings for the entire colorway.
If you need it in bulk, please convo me and I can ship it directly to you from the factory.
To crochet a bikini swimsuit I suggest taking 2 balls for sizes XS through M, for L-XL you will need 3 balls (suggestions for a basic triangle top with low-rise bottom). You will be able to craft 2-3 pairs (depending on design) of barefoot sandals out of one ball.
- price is for one ball -

CARE: Hand wash in cold water, don't bleach, dry clean with delicate solvent, iron low heat, don't tumble dry, dry flat. If you will combine a few colors within one project, to avoid bleeding I recommend you to follow these steps as well: mix (17 fl oz of cold water + 2 Tbsp. of white vinegar + 2 Tbsp. of salt) and place your finished project in there for 1 hour. Light smell of vinegar will go away after the very first wash. Rinse it in fresh water and lay flay to dry.
