When describing bamboo we use viscose of bamboo yarn in the knitting and weaving of our products.
It is a staple fibre like cotton and made from, well, Bamboo ! The inherent properties of Bamboo fabric allow the production of the same products as cotton, but Bamboo is better than cotton.
Yes, Bamboo beats cotton on every count! cotton blend is a very highly effective anti bacterial combination (tested to 50 washes). (except to C difficile) We have had it tested by a specialist microbiologist at the University of Central Lancashire.
It is more absorbent than cotton , absorbing over 400% of its own weight
From bedding to nappies and cleaning cloths to socks viscose of Bamboo is more breathable, itís more absorbent than cotton but it dries nearly as quickly, itís naturally antibacterial (tested up to 50 washes) especially when combined with some cotton, we have had all the fabrics used in the products tested twice by School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Central Lancashire . The tests showed that there was little reduction when tested for growth in C Difficile bacteria but it is effective in the reduction of MRSA bacteria. viscose of Bamboo has another wonderful property, itís softer to the touch yet it is as durable than cotton but for that extra wet strength we add cotton to the blend when the yarn is spun, and itís much more ecologically sustainable. Unlike cotton growing bamboo needs no irrigation. the vast majority of cotton is grown with the aid of chemical fertiliser and pesticides 20 % of all agricultural pesticides used annually are used in growing cotton.
Itís wonderful and we love it. We hope you do too!
