Bamboo Top - Topaz

Bamboo Top - Topaz

Topaz is a great gold color.  It has a bit of red in it which makes it slightly coppery. So rich and pretty.

This fibre is Bamboo Top.  "Top" means that it has been combed and the fibres are all aligned parallel.  There are no bumps or noils in this preparation.  Characteristics of bamboo are that it is anti-bacterial and eco-friendly. 

It is amazing that this beautiful fibre comes from a bamboo plant.  It is very soft, with extremely fine fibres, and has a gleaming shine.  Spin and ply it with your wool for a bright strand  in your hand-spun or blend it with other fibres.

This fibre also may be used for paper-making.  Your paper will have the shine of bamboo in it.  Bamboo may also be used in wet felting.  It doesn't felt by itself,  It must be "captured" like silk in the wool.

Malachite bamboo fibre is packaged in 25 gram, 50 gram, and 100 gram portions.  ( 25 grams= 0.88 oz, 50 grams= 1.76 oz, 100 grams = 3.52 ounces).
