This very large (13 1/2" across the top) bowl came home with me from Luticia Clementine's too. I found it on their clearance shelf, and suggested that I use it to store the fiber I was spinning that day. I thought it looked more attractive than the plastic bag I had it in. I fell in love with it. It is wood, or a reasonable fascimile thereof. Even though it looks beautiful sitting on my dynamite box in my living room too, (still filled with fiber), I also wanted it for the threshing bee I spin at. They don't like to have plastic stuff about. I usually use baskets, but they can often snag the fiber. This bowl will be perfect for the threshing bee too.
Today's title reminded me of a story. Several years ago, I was getting my hair cut at a walk-in salon. Chatting with the stylist, I mentioned that I had llamas. When she asked me what I use them for, I replied, for their fiber. She then asked what they taste like. Huh? Yep, she thought I meant that they are a high fiber food. I may have managed to keep a straight face when I explained my use of the term fiber, but I don't know how.
