What I'm Spinning: Bamboo top

Currently on one of my drop spindles is a handdyed bamboo top. Bamboo? Isn't that a big grass? Yes, it is, but it also creates a beautiful shiny and silky top. I find it softer and easier to spin than silk also. I'm going to be spinning more of this fiber- it's a welcome break from wools.
