I have some black and white bamboo and have been looking for a little summery knit for it, i don't have a ton of yardage though... I think I have 462 yards. Eek. I expect I do need to start looking for more, huh?
i'm sad to say, the yarn i bought had no yardage or gauge info printed on it whatsoever! it's this from company called Kangaroo that doesn't seem to export outside of Greece. for what it's worth, i used two and a half very large skeins (yes, i realize, that information is essentially useless). sorry about that! if the bamboo knits up nicely at a large gauge on big needles though, like this cotton did, 462 yards sounds like more than enough.
if you give it a try, i'd love to see how it goes!
