i use wendy a lot, it comes in very deep rich colours - i found this example on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Wendy-Pure-100-Bamboo-Yarn-in-shade-888-Tudor-Rose_W0QQitemZ220112876216QQihZ012QQcategoryZ36599QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQtrksidZp1638.m118.l1247QQcmdZViewItem

(hope it works!)

its lovely to use, very drapey & soft & knits up really quickly (i have gloves & scarf in deep pinks & a gorgeous very deep purple / pink mix)

The South West Trading Company website has a fairly decent selection of Bamboo yarns, not all pastel.  I'm using 'Parrot' right now, and it's pretty vibrant.

I sound like some kind of advertisement.  I know there are other bamboo yarns out there, the only one I've really used, though, is from SWTC.  I think the Interweave Knits mag from, um... Spring 07 (the one with the lingerie articles) had a small article on bamboo yarn at the front with the editorials.

I don't know how much you need, but I've heard good things about the bamboo yarns at Bonnie Triola Yarns. They come in a lot of different colors.

2. Some fungi are not edible more than once.

I just found this ebay seller and they have a bunch of bamboo/silk blends in really rich colors. I have just bought some really pretty deep blue. They sell in 8 skins in every auction and have lots of each one.  They have some thats just bamboo but it seems to be in pastels too. Seems odd to me that so much bamboo is pastel colors.

I've heard good things about http://www.discontinuedbrandnameyarn.com/ It comes by the bag and the bamboo is SWTC.
