I was so excited to get some bright red bamboo fiber that I could hardly wait to use it! I designed these art batts made of half bamboo, lots of soft 21 micron merino, some tussah silk, and a little bit of shimmery angelina as well.
These would NOT be good for felting because there isn't enough wool, but they are lovely to spin. I recommend spinning them fairly fine and then plying them if you want a thicker yarn. It's so much fun to spin yarn with bamboo as the bamboo is (can I say this?) silkier than silk in some ways.
Don't these look like a beautiful rose garden filled with red and pink roses? In fact, my inspiration came from the roses in my own backyard.

MY GIFT TO YOU
Also, as a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
