Did you know that bamboo is being used to make textiles for clothing and towels?
"Once you look at it, bamboo is a very logical choice of fibre for many items of clothing. As well as having excellent strength, shape stability, washability, colorfastness, shrink fastness and being exceptionally comfortable against the skin, bamboo fibre also boasts the following:
* Naturally bacteria inhibiting
*Particularly absorbent and breathable
* Produced without the use of harsh insecticides, serious pollutants"
The fabric is made in China. The company selling the socks and towels is in Australia. I'd like to try some of these.
