This is the fibre for the last--last--skein of my spinning folio. I decided to end on a bright note: The red is merino tops and the white is the (required) tencel. They're waiting to be carded together, then spun. The tencel feels even more synthetic than did the bamboo. Its redeeming feature is that the fibres are longer than either the bamboo or the soy, so they're less inclined to slip out of my fingers. And you can see the sheen. I'm hoping it will produce an effective highlight in the red fibre. Regardless of that, it will be done. Then I've got a fair bit of tidying up to do and swatches to knit before I can hand it all in.
