BAMBOO fiber is made from the bamboo plant, a grass farmed commercially throughout Asia. BAMBOO fiber is cool to the skin, comfortable to wear ,and shows beautiful drape and softness. It has the same moisture absorption as cotton but with better moisture transmission, making it more comfortable and sanitary. The fiber can be washed in home washing machines and air dried but we recommend dry cleaning. It not recommended for commercial/industrial washing machines. In textiles, the fabrics are known to be wrinkle-free and have little to no shrinkage. BAMBOO fibers are part of the new class of green textiles. They provide the environment with a unique "cradle-to-cradle" approach - coming from the earth and being wholly biodegradable. BAMBOO fiber contains no petroleum and all products are manufactured to be eco-friendly.
This listing is for a 2 oz. bag.
Depending on stock levels, some fibers or yarns may need to be special-ordered, which generally takes no longer than a regular Knitgrrl Studio mail order. We will let you know if we need to order additional fiber for you or if we need to ship part of your order separately. Thank you.
