Blocking Soie Bambou
There's been some interest in how the new Elann yarn, Soie Bambou, is knitting up. Here's the pre-blocking swatch. With very little tension added in the blocking, this grew only a half-inch or so. It's *very* drapey. This is the color 'Rouge'. I enjoyed knitting with this. It has a bit of the feel of a raw silk or silk noil, but not so rough. With the 65% silk, 35% bamboo content, there's not much springiness.
