I had a lovely customer of mine named Jane ask about spinning bamboo and I thought I'd experiment and do a blog post for others who may be interested as well.
Bamboo fibre compared to wool is much silkier, softer and lighter. I would consider this to be a more intermediate to advanced fibre to spin on it's own due to its slippery, silky nature. The staple length is approximately 10cm long.
Kaayi - I acknowledge the Awabakal and Worimi ancestors and their descendants as the Traditional Custodians of Mulubinba on which I live, work and play. I celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders (past, present and emerging) of all communities who also work and live on this land.
