Spinning with wool & Bamboo

This is the roving from Iris, just started to spin this, fine laceweight, lovely variated colours and very soft.
This is 100g Bamboo Fibre from Wingham Wool Work (UK), I have now to spin another bobbin as I will make a 2 ply yarn.

This is a fleece I got from the Suffolk Show last year, initially I spun straight from the fleece as it was so clean and easy to handle but had the rest sent to a fibre mill to be processed because the fleece with the lanolin was not very nice after a few months. This is before washing, it was very yellow and extremely greasy! More to follow.
