Bamboo yarn was quite popular not too long ago, but then people started discovering that it's not quite what it was touted to be. But, don't totally diss it yet -- there are a number of bamboo and other fiber blends out there that seem to enhance bamboo's ups (like its softness and natural antiseptic properties) while counteracting its downs (pure bamboo-yarn-made items tend to stretch a lot). One great combination is bamboo and wool -- soft, not itchy, and keeps its shape nicely.
