Our Gorgeous Range of Bamboo Jersey

About Bamboo Jersey

Our Bamboo jersey range holds 11 beautiful colours, the fabric is 95% Bamboo and 5% Elastane, it is eco-friendly and responsibly sourced. The bamboo plant has appeared as a new source for fabric due to how quickly it grows without using pesticides, excessive water or care. Bamboo regenerates quickly and even cleans the air while it grows. The bamboo fibres are made by manipulating the grass until it separates into thin threads, these are then spun in to thread for weaving or knitting fabrics.

Bamboo jersey is anti-bacterial and also odour-resistant and it is a great choice for people with sensitive skin, especially problems with eczema or allergies. The elastane ensures comfortability, durability and gives the fabric a four-way-stretch but still allows the fabric to hold its shape. The bamboo jersey is absorbent and breathable which makes it cool to wear.

Our Bamboo jersey range is of best quality, as well as being eco-friendly, it is ethically sourced and bamboo fibre is 100 percent biodegradable.

Caring for Bamboo Jersey

The Bamboo Jersey washes beautifully, the dyes are colourfast and because it is a natural fabric, it dries quickly. We recommend washing your bamboo jersey before starting your project, machine wash at 30 degrees. Press carefully on a low temperature iron setting with steam from the wrong side.
