Just the right mix 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
My experience with not cotton and bamboo have left something to be desired, but where each of those fail separately, the 50/50 blend works beautifully. Many bamboo yarns are shiny, at least more than I would like, and many cotton yarns are either rugged and burly like a mop head, or they're stiff and slick like embroidery floss. This yarn maintains a great balance between matte and shiny, and it's neither too stiff not too fragile. Occasionally it splits a little, but not nearly as badly as most cotton or bamboo yarns. And it's soft, but not too soft. I'm using it for socks, so I would love to have a little nylon or silk in the mix too, but otherwise, it's an excellent yarn, one that is cheap and comes in big balls that seem to never end.
