So, about all of that bamboo . . .

I have spun up about half of the 8 pounds I received last week!! It seems to be all i AM spinning! Here are some shots of the colors still available on etsy:

Ocean Dusk - two skeinsCitrus Dreams - two skeins
Stormy Night - two skeins
Spring Garden - Light - 1 skein

and, finally, New Southwest - 1 skein

So, yeah, I've been busy spinning up all of that bamboo fiber. I have about 3.5 pounds left! I want to spin some of them into two-plys, but will have at least 3 more single ply colors coming soon.

But, soon, I will be doing some more coily spins and art yarn spins! I got these in the mail yesterday:

and they are just calling to me to be spun! They are Spontaneous Spinning Batts from LOOP. It's actually a miracle I was able to snag them! The update was very very late on Friday night and the only reason I was awake for it??? I was spinning bamboo!!!

Gorgeous. I especially love the colors of Citrus Dream. And Loop's batts are so amazingly beautiful--like fluffy little works of art.

Thank you both! Citrus Dream is actually my favorite, too! I have another colorway called "Orange Ice" that is similar and I haven't spun it yet because I think I want to keep it for myself! :)

They are so beautiful! I wish I knew how to knit or crochet. If I did, I'd be making so many beautiful projects with your yarn!
