I went to my favorite craft store to purchase cotton yarn, and I saw several skeins of bamboo yarn. I am not familiar with bamboo yarn, and was curious to know if it is similar to cotton yarn.

Bamboo yarn has a tighter weave than regular cotton yarn. It also has somewhat of a sheen to it when worked (I do crochet) up and has less raveling to the finished item. It slides through my crochet hook easier than cotton.

I have not tried it yet, but will try it eventually.

I think it's too stiff to be appropriate for any baby stuff.
