A very high quality bamboo top in the colorway Vanilla, as in vanilla ice cream - the light, almost gold color of the best vanillas. Not white. Not Yellow, but a lovely neutral creamy color with a gorgeous luster. Viscose fibers like bamboo provide ultra-silkiness and luster, like fine silks, at a fraction of the price. Bamboo offers strength and nature's own cooling fabric. The weight for bamboo fiber allows for a beautiful drape in projects. These viscose tops are perfect for both needle and wet felting, spinning and hand weaving.
Super soft and silky, this fine, eco friendly and renewable fiber is great for working into your spinning and felting projects. I especially love bamboo in nuno felting. While it doesn't felt by itself I "tack it down" with a sheer layer of fiber on my scarves and accessories. It creates such a shine and literally glows with it's colors. When used in nuno felting it naturally zig zags, like a child-drawn lightening bolt - really neat. The last picture is a great example of how bamboo behaves in wet felting projects.
