Bamboo is 100% naturally grown, without assistance from man and it is 100% sustainable. It thrives naturally without using any pesticides or fertilizers and the fiber is 100% biodegradable. Bamboo also has many features that lend themselves perfectly to socks.
The cross-section of the bamboo fiber is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes, ensuring much better moisture absorption and ventilation than other fibers. This means that the bamboo is 2-3 degrees cooler in warm weather and also very warm in cold weather, because of the same micro structure. Bamboo never sticks to the skin, it’s 3-4 times more absorbent than cotton, wicking moisture away from the skin which then evaporates, keeping you naturally drier and more comfortable.
Socks made from bamboo have particular natural anti-bacterial functions, bacteriostasis and deodorization value. Its test results show over 70% of bacteria perished when incubated on bamboo fiber. In addition, tests by the Japanese Textile Inspection Association found that, even after fifty times of washing, bamboo fabric still possessed these functions. Bamboo allows socks to help keep feet fresher for longer and healthier as the fabric naturally stops bacteria from spreading.
