Bamboo fiber is beginning to be used more and more in the manufacture of textile products due to its characteristics.
It is a sustainable fiber since it is obtained from bamboo pulp, a plant that grows very quickly and requires very little maintenance since it does not need pesticides or fertilizers.
It is one of the most renewable materials in the world, and in addition to being a sustainable resource, it is also profitable, being able to harvest between 4 and 6 times a year.
Once the bamboo is collected, it is crushed and subjected to a viscous process that gives rise to a soft mass, the bamboo pulp. This is transformed by another process into bamboo threads of different sizes. The fiber obtained is biodegradable, which means that it can be fully degraded in the soil.
It gives the fabric a soft and fresh touch and a luminous appearance. Additionally, bamboo yarn is highly absorbent and breathable, making it a good choice for summer clothing.
Despite its softness, the bamboo thread is resistant and highly durable over time.
Bamboo fibers have natural antibacterial properties, helping to reduce odors and keep clothes fresh. It is also a hypoallergenic fiber, which makes it suitable for people with sensitive skin or health problems.
It is the ecological alternative to synthetic materials and can be used in a wide variety of products such as clothing, towels, sheets, bath towels, etc.
In summary, bamboo yarn is a versatile and sustainable material that is beginning to be used in the manufacture of textiles. Bamboo fiber is presented as an alternative to cotton, since it is better for the environment.
