Bamboo fibre is a relatively new fibre. The fibre is produced from Bamboo pulp (like viscose pulp) which is obtained through a process of hydrolysis/alkalisation and bleaching of bamboo stems. The resulting pulp is wet spun in the same way as other pulp based fibres. The fibre is white and silky in appearance and is a cool as a result of its high absorbency, due to the fibre being full of cavities.
The fibre is soft to handle with good absorbency and can be used in blends with other fibres or 100%. It also has the unique function of being antibacterial. The main producing country is China. We offer this in natural colours and also in 8 dyed shades. The dyes used are commercial acid dyes which conform with Oeko-Tex 100 quality system.
