Part of the fun of taking a passenger steam train trip is talking with your fellow passengers. This year, we’re providing two locations where our passengers can get to know each other. We’d love to hear about your favorite things you’ve discovered on the tour and see photos of your current crochet projects. You’re invited to join us daily for virtual cocktails/appetizers and dinner. (We’ll be sharing links to some fabulous recipes!)

  1. I love when you combine two different fibers you get the BEST of both. The lovely drape of bamboo and the strength and integrity of cotton. As I said the best of both worlds!

  2. I haven’t tried bamboo/cotton blend but I love the fact that they are natural fibers and they are great for summer wear.

  3. I love the idea of a bamboo/cotton blend to avoid animal fibers, and especially to use a very renewable resource like bamboo. I like the sheen and drape that bamboo brings.

  4. Of the bamboo and cotton yarns I have used, what I like is their softness and drape. Plus some of the ones I have tried have a wonderful sheen.

  5. I’ve never tried a bamboo-mix, to my knowledge, but I look forward to trying it in the hopefully-near future. Plain cotton tends to be hard on my hands (since it doesn’t have the same “stretch” as other wool, etc.), so it would be interesting to see if bamboo makes it smoother!

  6. Bamboo is by far my favorite fiber, followed by cotton. I like their smoothness and their stability. I also like the fact that they let the skin breathe and they can both be turned into light and cool clothing for spring

  7. I’ve always liked bamboo in yarn, and I’m allergic to wool so not having wool in it is a distinct advantage. πŸ™‚

  8. What adorable bunnies! I love crocheting with bamboo and cotton yarns, for one, because nine months out of the year where I live just about anything else is too hot. Clothes stitched with yarn made of either or both fibers can be worn even in the summer. Cotton has nice stitch definition, and bamboo has fantastic drape. Combined together, you get the best of both fibers. Thanks for another great NatCroMo 2016 day!

  9. I’ve worked with bamboo and really like it.
    I’d love to try the bamboo/cotton. Thank you for the chance to win.

  10. I have never tried bamboo yarn so would love to try it. I love to use cotton yarn for making dishcloths and some childrens outfits. Lavender is my favorite color. Thank you for a chance to win.

  11. I love the drape and feel of both bamboo and cotton. I love that I can make a garments for my grandchildren and that it will be soft next to their skin.

  12. I haven’t used bamboo yarn but I love cotton for household items like bags and potholders. This yarn and bunny pattern look beautiful.

  13. I’ve never used bamboo yarn before although I’ve heard of it. I love trying new things (to me) and growing in my crochet experiences. It would be wonderful to win!

  14. What a fantastic gift! I just finished a bunny for the neighbors little girl and these skeins would make some more awesome bunnies to give to little ones.

  15. I love the feel, softness, texture, shine and stitch definition. It is easy to work with and lends itself especially to bonnets and booties, and so many items for littles ones!
