Does this hold it`s shape or stretch out? I`d like to do the February Lady sweater in it but don`t want it down to my knees after stretching out!!!!! Thanks.

Cathy, I bought the Superwash Bamboo specifically for the February Lady. After swatching, I found that it stretched terribly. However, it did mostly go back into shape once it was dry. Still, with the garter and lace composition of the February Lady, I decided against using it.

Here is my blog post about the swatch:

Thanks. That`s what I was afraid of but was hoping there would be enough wool in it to hold its shape. Guess not!!!! Also the fuzziness wouldn`t be good for the lace part. Thanks again for your help.

I remember reading your helpful blognpost and it was partly thereason why I stopped working on my February lady sweater using that yarn. Still like the purple buttons I chose so I guess I`ll need to pick another yarn in a crolor that matches them.
