Bamboo yarn and its fabric has a super soft feel, almost silk-like. Although there are 2 types of bamboo yarn on the market: viscose bamboo and natural plant bamboo, our bamboo is the viscose variety as up till now, there is only a tiny amount of the pure 'bast' plant fibre version(currently less than 1% of all bamboo fibre) available and it is not made into this type of jersey fabric. Viscose bamboo is an extruded fibre which is a chemical process similar to how rayon, tencel & viscose are produced, so man made but eco. This type of viscose uses the bamboo as the raw ingredient, the cellulose, in the production of the fibre so it does have eco credentials but not as much as the pure bast plant fibre bamboo.

I make t shirts and long sleeved baselayers out of this and sell them and every time customers exclaim and how nice and soft it is.
It does tend to loose it's shape a little when sewing hems so keep the tension on your machine tight.
It's a looser knit than the 210gsm hemp/cotton blend. Feels very cosy to wear and naturally dyes very well as the absorption of the hemp and bamboo fibres means it takes to colour well.
