here are the HOLES after i washed it PER their instructions
COLD water - gentle cycle - in a lingerie bag - with a wool wash

the ONLY time it was on a hanger was to take pic

you CAN see that the top grew about 7" in length

TOTAL time wasted = 1 MONTH

total $$ wasted ~ $56

SWTC is not aware that ANY knitters are having problem
with BAMBOO = 100% Bamboo

from what i have heard ALL Bamboo stretches

so, it's NOT worth the hassel to deal with SWTC about
the incredible STRETCHING top

i will eat the cost of the top
and the time it took to knit it

i will however NOT be buying
4 skeins of Bamboo to make the cami from "One Row Below"
nor will i be buying the PURE & knitting the top i wanted
nor will i be buying a-Maizing to make a vest AND cami
nor will i be buying Phoenix OR Oasis to make a cami

in fact - i won't be buying ANY yarn from SWTC
the Entrelac Cami from TOFUtsies may become a permanent UFO
because i am not happy with the company

gonna give away the rest of their yarns
not wasting my time knitting with them

SWTC yarn


i washed the SWTC Bamboo sweater in a lingerie bag

- now it has holes in it -

there was NOT a knot where it broke

the yarn must have been weak

- my advice - do NOT use this yarn -

the sweater grew like 5 sizes & i was trying to shrink it back so I could wear it

wish i had gotten a pick of it all stretched out

NO MORE SWTC yarn for me
