Bamboo and cotton fibre Towels 550 gsm weight.
'Bamboo' thrives naturally without the use of pesticides. It is a natural cellulose fibre which is converted into yarns without the addition of chemicals, and is 100% biodegradable in soil by micro-organism and sunshine, causing no pollution to the environment.. the towels have a cotton warp for strength and good absorption.
The unique make-up of the 'Bamboo' fibre, whose cross section is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes gives it a moisture absorption rate three times that of Cotton. 'Bamboo' fibre is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti static. Its natural antibiosis function keeps bacteria away so that it won't produce bad odours. Our 'Bamboo' fibre towels have an ultra-soft feel, yet own a high abrasion-proof capacity, making them extremely durable and hard wearing.
They are woven using natural unbleached and undyed Bamboo and Cotton yarns. Bamboo for the pile (loops) and Cotton for the backing, giving a total fibre content of 60% Bamboo, and 40% Cotton by weight.
These towels are supplied pre-washed & tumbled after weaving, and no further shrinkage should occur on subsequent laundering. However shrinkage may occur and so can an increase in dimensions. Bamboo and cotton are natural fibres and do vary a lttle in performance according to washing temperature and drying conditions. Careful handling needs to be taken with your new ‘Bamboo’ towel to prevent snagging of the loops (broken finger nails, rings, zips etc.) prior to its first domestic laundering.
The towels should be laundered at 40°C (normal wash), rinsed and spun dry thoroughly, then tumble dried if desired at a low to medium heat setting. We do not recommend the use of fabric softeners for towels, as they tend to block-up the holes in the fibres leading to reduced absorbency.
