Bambino Taffy by Be Sweet
70% Organically Grown Cotton
1 Ball = 100 yards
This is a self-striping, textured, slightly thick and thin yarn. The texture of this yarn has a very nice rough/earthy look to it. The feel of the yarn is very soft. It feels like a broken in t-shirt. Wonderful! This is the first yarn with cotton in it that I have actually enjoyed working with. Although, to be fair, I haven't worked with many cotton yarns aside from Sugar N Cream, which is not one of my favorite yarns. The mixture of fibers also adds to the textured look of this yarn. The cotton is the soft, dull side, and the bamboo gives an extra kick with a little bit of sheen. If you are looking for a worsted weight yarn for a simple project this yarn is it. It has all the pizazz to make a simple project come to life.
Down side to this yarn: the producers created the self-striping effect by basically knotting five different colored yarns together.
I am not so crazy about that. I tried pulling two of the knots apart, and they held together very well. However, there is just something that I cannot get past mentally. It just seems to cheapen the yarn somehow.
Even with that one negative, I would still recommend this yarn, and I still really like this yarn.
