The hand feel, the drape….EVERYTHING!
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!
I haven’t tried this bamboo/cotton yarn yet. But I love both bamboo and cotton for being natural yarns that feel great and have great stitch definition.
I love the texture of the yarn.
I really like the sheen and softness of the bamboo and cotton yarns.
I really like the blend of cotton with bamboo as it is easy to work with and breathes well for warm weather.
I like the soft that bamboo add, the gain in flexibility and keeping the strength of cotton.
I like the softness, drape and versatility… Great for summer projects.
I haven’t tried bamboo/cotton blend but I love the fact that they are natural fibers and they are great for summer wear.
i have not tried the combination of fiber before. i have tried separately both cotton and bamboo yarns and like them
It’s sooo soft!
Bamboo and cotton yarns give great definition to the stitches and patterns. Plus they wash and wear beautifully!
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.
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.
What do you like about bamboo and cotton yarn? Makes nice crocheted clothing.
I love the softness and versatility of cotton and bamboo
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!
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
My new niece needs that!!
I’ve always liked bamboo in yarn, and I’m allergic to wool so not having wool in it is a distinct advantage. 🙂
I haven’t worked with either one but would love the experience!
Soft, breathable, and great for Oklahoma!
I like it becuz its cooler in the summer & I live in TX and that is a must!!
I like how cotton yarn is “breathable” and how nicely bamboo yarn drapes.
I love the feel and drape of it–would love to make a bunny for my GD.
I like cottom +bamboo because it is a soft, silky & washable natural blend
I would love to try out this yarn. I love the feel and drape of bamboo!
The texture and how it works up.
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!
I love the soft texture of bamboo and cotton.
I’ve worked with bamboo and really like it.
I’d love to try the bamboo/cotton. Thank you for the chance to win.
I haven’t worked with it before so I guess the thought of it. 🙂
I like working with bamboo yarn. It’s soft and drapes nicely. I would like to work with this blend!
A giveaway filled with cuteness! 🙂
I like how easy it is to wash & how soft it is!
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.
I love Eco fusion for its softnedd
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.
I haven’t used bamboo yarn but I love cotton for household items like bags and potholders. This yarn and bunny pattern look beautiful.
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!
I like bamboo and cotton yarn because it feels nice against your skin.
Another wonderful giveaway day. Thanks for the chance
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.
I like cotton yarn because of it’s strength and bamboo yarn because of it’s softness.
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!
