A 4 oz bundle of bamboo top, the sheen of silk and the easy care of cotton. This colorway is made of three base colors. A darker blue, bright golden yellow and a raspberry color. These colors blend together at various spots to give many more wonderful shades. This is hand dyed right in our little dye area in Texas.
Bamboo is cool in hot weather, quickly absorbs moisture, naturally renewable, bactericidal and the most incredible shine and softness imaginable. I adore this fiber. You just have to feel it to believe it. From a non smoking environment.
According to the manufacturer
Bamboo is a very environmentally friendly fiber.
They are so fast growing that they have been known to grow over 3 feet overnight.
Bamboo has an unique anti-bacteria agent and this agent has been shown to last for many washings.
Bamboo is naturally pest resistant and can be grown without the need for pesticides.
Due to the fiber structure of bamboo with it's micro-holes, it can absorb and evaporate sweat from human skin in a fraction of a second.
As if all of that wasn't enough, bamboo has the sheen, weight and drape of silk. Bamboo is more alkaline tolerant than silk and is not harmed by the aluminum in antiperspirants as silk is.
As you can tell, I am REALLY passionate about this fiber. The bamboo top in this listing has a 3" fiber length and is already formed into a wonderful combed top preparation ready for spinning or blending with another prepared fiber.
