What Is Bamboo Yarn? Bamboo yarn is made with bamboo grass. After harvest it distilled into cellulose and then spun into yarn. It’s a natural, non-animal sourced fibre which is considered an eco-friendly fabric. Bamboo yarn is very absorbent due to the micro-gaps in the bamboo fibre. The main benefit of bamboo products are their anti-bacterial abilities.
Why Bamboo Material Socks? Bamboo materials inhibit bacterial growth, while other fabrics like wool, may encourage bacterial growth. Bacteria mixed with sweat is what causes bodily odour on clothing. If you have allergies to wool or other types of yarn, you should not have problems if you are wearing bamboo. Bamboo is a plant-based fibre that has no risk of allergies. But: If you’re not using 100% bamboo yarn, check what the bamboo yarn is blended with, you may have an allergy to one of the other fibres.
