The beauty of bamboo-based Burnish is that it drapes and shines like silk but is more durable, less expensive, machine washable, and 100% vegan. We love that it manifests the refinement and grace of silk without requiring animal products or precious care! Burnish is essentially a rayon, a fiber created by chemically breaking down plant materials (bamboo, in this case) into a pulp, which is then extruded into fibers. We are happy to say that this rayon meets all the eco-toxicological standards required by Europe’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals regulation. One hundred grams of Burnish yield a generous 339 yards of fingering/ sport weight yarn, perfect on needles from US 2 to 6 depending on the piece and the stitch pattern. We’re casting on for scarves, wraps, and sweaters and love the willowy drape and super clean stitch definition!

PLEASE NOTE: The color Turquoise Sea is prone to bleeding. Rinse either the skein or finished project until it runs clear, and avoid using it with other colors.
