Spun Bamboo Update

I'm on my third project in an attempt to work with spun bamboo because it's not behaving for me.  It actually breaks apart with an gentle but audible snap.  I knit too loosely for my own good, so I know it's not my tension.  I'm currently working on an open lace accent scarf just for pattern and yarn practice, but I'm starting to wonder about the durability of bamboo.  Is this normal, or is it possible I have a defective skein?  If I hold a length of it between both hands and tug, it snaps in half.
