Bamboo is an extremely soft and breathable fiber
Bamboo fabric can adjust to your body temperature. It has millions of micro gaps in the fiber making it one the fasting wicking fabrics available. This means you will stay cooler and more comfortable in the summer because these micro gaps allow more air to flow between the fabric and your skin.
Bamboo yarn by nature is much finer than cotton yarn, we use the finest bamboo yarn which gives our product a super light feeling and an incredibly ultra soft feel. Often compared to the softness and suppleness of fine silk and cashmere, bamboo fiber is perfect yarn for socks.
The Asian countries have historically used the bamboo plants for animal feed, handicrafts, and housing. Its shoots continue to provide nutrition for millions of people worldwide and in Japan the antioxidant properties of pulverized bamboo bark have been proven to prevent bacterial growth and are used as a natural food preservative.
The Japan Textile Inspection Association has validated that even after 50 washings bamboo fabrics possess antimicrobial properties.
Bamboo yarns are a renewable and sustainable resource
The bamboo plant is the fastest growing woody plant on the planet. Some species grow as much as 1 meter/day and can reach heights of 60 meters. Most varieties can be harvested within 3-5 years versus a 10-20 year growing cycle for soft woods. This incredibly growth rate makes bamboo yarn the most sustainable based cellulose fiber yarn available today.
