Handspun Merino Bamboo

I knit one of the lovely skeins of handspun from friend Eva in Germany:

This is 70% Merino and 30% Bamboo, 3 ply, 439m/102g in beautiful greens, blues and greys.

I knit a pair of Size Large using the 72 needle cylinder and 36 slot ribber on the Verdun 47. Reverse e-wrap selvedge on a 1x1 rib topper and the rest in stockinette. The bamboo content makes for a nice sturdy yarn and I further reinforced the heels and toes with wooly nylon.
