Kabam

Kabam

Kabam: A merino, bamboo and nylon blend creates a shiny, smooth yarn that is perfect for showing off fancy lace patterns. Kabam holds its shape, creating a drapiness and softness that allow it to make gorgeous lace shawls or scarves. The bamboo not only adds shine, it also takes dye differently, giving the colors a rich, muted look. Kabam is ideal for durable, breathable socks, especially if you live a warmer climate. The bamboo helps keep your feet cool and the smooth, silky feeling of the yarn means your socks will feel oh-so-comfortable.

The Kabam base is available as an Evolution, as a Self-Striping, and as Semi-Solid shades designed to coordinate with each colorway.
