Thanks to modern manufacturing, you can use bamboo pulp to create bamboo fiber, which is useful for making fabric and yarn. Bamboo fabric has a lot of benefits when compared to other types of material.
The feel of bamboo fabric is almost as soft as silk. The bamboo fabric is round, smooth and doesn’t have sharp protrusions. As a result of this, bamboo fabric doesn’t irritate the skin, making it hypoallergenic, perfect for people who have allergic reactions to natural fibers such as hemp or wool.
There is a bacteriostatic and anti-bacteria bio-agent present in which goes by the name “Bamboo Kun”, which allows bamboo to grow in the wild without any herbicides or pesticides or fertilizers. Bamboo fabric also retains this property, which kills all the bacteria present in the material. As a result of this, bamboo fabric remains fresh and odor-free for a longer time, making bamboo clothing hygienic and healthy.
Bamboo fabric is breathable, unlike most of the other fabrics available in the market. The plant has a natural ability to keep itself cool when exposed to heat. Bamboo fabric also retains this natural ability, keeping the wearer at least two degrees cooler than the surrounding temperature and warmer during winter. As bamboo is UV protective and anti-static, it blocks most of the harmful UV rays from the sun.
Bamboo fabric is a super absorber of moisture because of micro holes in the material. Due to this property, it can absorb and evaporate our sweat quickly. When compared to cotton, bamboo absorbs moisture four times faster.
Due to the various benefits of bamboo fabric, cloth manufacturers blend it with 30% cotton. They use bamboo fabric to manufacture exercise and performance wear because of its antifungal, antibacterial, and moisture absorbent properties. Bamboo is one of the most versatile plants available on this planet!
