Bambino DK

Bambino is a beautiful multi-end yarn with fantastic stitch definition, making it perfect for a whole range of techniques and styles, from classic baby garments to textures and cables. Knits like a merino with the practicality and value for money of an acrylic yarn. The palette is muted and modern. The yarn is beautifully smooth and comfy for baby, naturally anti-pilling and of course machine washable, so super practical.
