This listing is for a Spin Flora 100 gram pack of Charcoal Black dyed Bamboo top. Bamboo viscose top is one of the relatively new handspinning fibres. The bamboo is processed into a cellulose pulp and wet spun into silky filaments. Bamboo is cool to wear as it has high water absorbency, and also has antibacterial properties. The main producer of bamboo is China. Bamboo fibre is best spun with a high twist.
The singles yarn can be plied with itself or with another yarn such as wool. Bamboo can also be carded and blended with other fibres. The Charcoal Black dyed bamboo top is quite bright and vivid in colour and will be lovely when blended with other fibres in your handspinning or feltmaking projects. Bamboo fiber is excellent for making doll hair, as well as wet or needle felting or papermaking. Bamboo fibre can be dyed using natural plant dyes and mordants or other dyes suitable for cellulose fibres.

The Spin Flora fibre is packaged in an organza mesh bag that allows the fibre to breathe and the bag can also be re-used. If you would like to order a larger quantity, please contact me for a custom order.
