Under the trade name Spun Bamboo EcoThreadz produces a natural fibre of bamboo. It is an alternative to cotton, wool, hemp and synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon. Bamboo fibre is soft, has a natural sheen to the surface and feels similar to silk or cashmere. You can throw it in the washer and drier.

Bamboo textile drapes like silk, it feels as soft and good as silk, but it is more practical because it is durable and much less expensive and versatile. Bamboo is more antibacterial than cotton or wool, which are absorbent and hold moisture in. Because Bamboo wicks moisture away, it’s positive for circulation and skin.

Due to bamboo fibre’s cross section which is composed of a matrix with various microscopic gaps, bamboo fibre is breathable, comfortable and thermal regulating. Bamboo fibre fabric and yarn are naturally bacteriostatic and require no harmful chemicals. The fibres contain an agent, “bamboo kun”, that prevents bacteria from cultivating on it thereby inhibiting body odour. The naturally occurring bacteriostatic property also helps prevent cultivation of yeasts, molds and fungus.
