Does anyone have experience with spinning bamboo fiber. I have approximately one pound of bamboo fiber. I was thinking of blending it with some corriedale wool I have (approx. 3 lbs). What ratio should I blend. Any tips would be appreciated.

Only Irish coffee provides in a single glass all four essential food groups: alcohol, caffeine, sugar, and fat.

Bamboo looks a little better than it feels to me. But blended with corriedale in about 20% proportion, it should give the blend a subtle shine without altering the 'feel' too much. I dont mind bamboo, but it doesn't have much loft. I guess it's unfair to compare something that looks like silk to silk!
Happy spinning.
