Here's the thing about bamboo:
To the best of our knowledge, our "Rayon Bamboo" products are made from 100% Bamboo (or for socks, 94% Bamboo rayon and 6% Spandex). There is a debate raging about how or if bamboo rayon is really "anti-bacterial", "sustainable", or "earth frendly", and if it is better or worse than other fibers for you and the planet.
We don't know! We just sell socks! We're like, sock guys, not scientists. The only claim we make is that your feet will be warmer with socks. Also, if you dye and decorate them, your feet will look better!
There is a lot of information available on this topic on the internet. Check it out if it interests you.
Bamboo rayon socks are great for several reasons:
- They're soft, soft, soft!
- Rumor has it that bamboo rayon fibers are both highly absorbent and possibly bacteria resistant. What better qualities are there for a sock, we ask.
- Bamboo itself is a very renewable resource that grows fast without chemicals and pesticides.
- Still cellulose, so they dye beautifully with our Fiber Reactive Dyes.
We weren't originally serious about them because we thought they would be too expensive but we were able to get a really good price on these as they are basic summer weight socks. Nothing fancy in design, mind you, but that's your job! They are 94% pure Bamboo rayon that has been developed in the same way other Rayon fiber is, but made from bamboo, and 6% Spandex for stretch. Possible pilling when put in the washing machine with rough textured fabrics.
Bamboo socks come in packs of 3 pair.
