Natural white cellulose fiber made from the Bamboo plant blended with soft superwash merino wool and nylon. The bamboo fiber used comes from plantation forests.
There are two basic types of fibers produced from the Bamboo tree. This type of Bamboo fiber is produced in much the same manner (Viscose) as Rayon, Tencel, Modal and others.
100% Rayon Viscose Bamboo: is a silky smooth fiber. The process is similar in many ways to the production of paper; the bamboo trees are ground up, a slurry is made and the fiber is produced by forcing the hot slurry through small holes to shape the fiber. 3 denier (19 micron) fiber rayon type. Nice used as is or blended with other fibers much like you would with silk.
100% Bast Bamboo is harvested in much the same manner as other Bast fibers such as Ramie and Hemp. This is smoother than Ramie or Hemp. Very long staple length. Looks like something I would like to spin for weaving yarn or cool summer yarns.
