MADDIE [100% Bamboo Ribbon Hand Painted]


Makalu MADDIE,
made in China, hand painted in Canada


This bamboo silk ribbon is very soft, eco-friendly and naturally organic. It is hand-painted in juicy ombré hues. Using this yarn, you can knit a fast-and-easy summer top, sweater, cardigan, poncho, scarf, wrap, dress, and in colours, which will definitely bring joy to your eyes. Bulky open-work patterns are suitable as well. FYI: 100% bamboo is a natural antibacterial, hypoallergenic, and biodegradable fiber.

FYI • The patent on the manufacturing process of bamboo vicose is held by the Hebei Jigao Chemical Fiber Company. This facility produces all of the bamboo viscose on the market. To strictly control the quality of raw material, this company has built its own bamboo plantation and keeps strict control over it. The bamboo is grown in accordance with the international organic standard of OCIA/IFOAM and the USDA National Organic Program, so as to ensure each bamboo stalk is of 100% natural growth and without any chemical pesticides. • Ombré yarns are dyed gradually so each colour melts into the next without a distinct transition. Ombré can be monochromatic as well.
