Loose Bamboo! Super silky and cool to the touch, our bamboo fibers are perfect for a whole range of crafts.
Bamboo fiber is a relatively new fiber. The fiber 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 fibers. The fiber is white and silky in appearance and is a cool as a result of its high absorbency, due to the fiber being full of cavities.
The fiber is soft to handle with good absorbency and can be used in blends with other fibers or 100%. It also has the unique function of being antibacterial. The main producing country is China.
