Bamboo fibre for handspinning is now available in 2 forms - one is a smoothly combed viscose top and the other is a rougher staple fibre. These require different methods of spinning.
For my next Spin Flora not Fauna project, I thought I would spin a bit of rose top. Rose fibre is another one of the ‘new’ vegan handspinning fibres, made from roses. The rose fibre has been extracted from the natural waste of rose bushes and stems. The fibre has been stripped and processed to create a luxurious and soft handspinning spinning fibre, similar to silk.
