Loose Bamboo! Super silky and cool to the touch, our bamboo fibres are perfect for a whole range of crafts.
Bamboo fibre is a relatively new fibre. The fibre is produced from Bamboo pulp (like viscose pulp) which is obtained through a process of hydrolysis/alkalisation and bleaching of bamboo stems. The resulting pulp is wet spun in the same way as other pulp based fibres. The fibre is white and silky in appearance and is a cool as a result of its high absorbency, due to the fibre being full of cavities.
The fibre is soft to handle with good absorbency and can be used in blends with other fibres or 100%. It also has the unique function of being antibacterial.
