This fiber is from Loop on etsy and started out as a beautiful 3 ounce batt of bamboo, alpaca, silk, and Corriedale. Steph's batts are almost too pretty to spin.
It was fun to spin the mix of fibers. You kind of have to pay attention because of all the different fiber lengths but it was great watching the shiny fibers of the silk and bamboo mix with the alpaca and wool. It is amazing how slippery the bamboo fibers really are.
The resulting yarn has a beautiful sheen and a very nice drape. I wish I had more of this to spin.
