8/2 Bamboo is a type of rayon. Bamboo fibers are broken down into a cellulose slurry, then regenerated into an extruded rayon fiber. Like most rayons, it has a nice sheen. The twist on this yarn is fairly tight, so it has more body and less drape than some rayons. Take advantage of the deep colors and good sheen and use this for a holiday table runner or decorative pillow top. It is the same size as 8/2 cotton, so you can substitute it in projects calling for 8/2 cotton.
