My first handspun bamboo fiber:
It's about 250 yards of 2 ply, weighing about 3.25 oz. The color is actually a very pale lilac. I dyed the fiber before it was spun.
The bamboo wasn't really hard to spin, but it was... unusual. It seemed a little stiff in the single, though that may be because I am the Queen of High-Twist Yarns. It softened up nicely in the plying, though. It's slighly fuzzy, but should have some nice drape.
I'm still struggling to find a good way to spin cotton. I can't get either of my wheels to spin the cotton A) fine enough AND B) fast enough. I can get one or the other, but friends, I have POUNDS of cotton to spin, and I'd rather not spend the rest of my life doing it.
I'm using one of the spindles from my charkha, and obviously the spindle support is just being held on by a clamp right now. But it works, and it's almost fast enough. :) Now I just have to refine my technique.
Unexpected side effect: my left arm gets TIRED reaching up and to the side when I'm drafting the fiber. Who knew?
