Last night I tried spinning bamboo fiber for the first time. I got some wonderful dyed bamboo from HollyEQQ and decided to try and spin it up last night. It actually spun pretty easily, as long as I could control the fly-aways, and I did pre-draft it pretty extensively.
Here is a shot of the single on the bobbin:
It is *very* difficult to photograph because of the wonderful shine of the fiber.
I wasn't sure whether or not to ply it, but I really don't like curly-cue singles, so I plied it with some thread. Here are two shots--the first with flash and the second without:
I actually really like how it turned out and it is soo shiny and soft! This is 84 yards bulky weight yarn. It should be up on my website later today and might show up one etsy at a later date.
Since I enjoyed spinning this, I plan on spinning up another colorway tonight!
