Big bamboo-a-palooza tomorrow!

I spent a good bit of last week dyeing bamboo blend sock yarns, including this new blend of 40% bamboo, 40% wool and 20% nylon (that one's balled because I have to sample the goods occasionally; quality control, you know):

the 50% bamboo/50% merino blend shown in the next couple of photos:

and a couple of skeins of Bamboo Lite, which is 75% wool/25% bamboo, very firm twist:

So stop by Black Bunny Fibers tomorrow to score some. Many of these colorways have that dreamy, harmonious quality that is good for showing off stitch patterns.

Coming tomorrow: the first of my fall preview posts...and there's lots of great stuff to show you!

P.S. Bonne Bastille a mes amis francais!

Very very very pretty! Is bamboo hard to dye?? I'm used to dyeing wool only.

Y'know... sampling the goods is what gets so many bartenders and drug dealers in trouble.
