Bamboo isn’t just for pandas and interior decoration. It can be used to make extremely soft yarn for weaving. This yarn becomes shirts, scarves, pants, and other things you didn’t think bamboo could become.
In order to make yarn, seasoned stalks are cut into smaller pieces of raw bamboo. These are soaked in an environmentally friendly solution approved by the Global Organic Textile Standard.
The solution breaks down the bamboo fibers, thus extracting the bamboo pulp which is then dried into sheets. Once dried, these sheets are milled into a soft material known as bamboo fluff. The fiber is then separated and spun into thread that’s used to create yarn for weaving.
The end result: Cloth that is as soft as cotton, luxurious as cashmere, and environmentally friendly as bamboo.
