Spinning for Warps

Has anyone spun Bamboo for their own weaving projects?

I have spun silk, cotton and all sorts of animal fiber (wool, alpaca, dog...etc.) However, I have fallen in love with this bamboo fiber, and was curious if anyone has had experience spinning and dyeing it. Specifically for warp use.

What about other fibers...maybe we can get a little discussion going about various fibers and how you spin them for warps.


Thank you,
