This is an one of a kind yarn for crochet bikinis and other types of beachwear. This bamboo thread has 2 % of lycra in it, making it to be an ideal option for garments that will get wet and stay under the sun pretty often. Because of this low percentage of lycra, your garments will not loose their original shape, even being wet. The thread is light, soft, and has slightly shimmering effect. To work with this stretchy yarn is just a pure pleasure. Because of its lace weight, you will come up with a delicate and so elegant piece of crochet wear.
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 black 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.

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.
