With so many fiber choices out there, how do you choose which one is best for you? Do you struggle with allergies? Is your skin sensitive? Are you concerned about bacteria that some fibers hold? Then bamboo might be the fiber of choice for you.
Sharon Stuart, CEO & Founder of BedVoyage, released the following information about bamboo fiber production process:
“The process of talking a stalk of any kind of tree (Bamboo, birch, Eucalyptus, etc) and turning it into a fiber that can be spun into a textile is called Rayon or Viscose. there is a solvent used in breaking down the stalk into a pulp that can then be spun. this process is commonly called Rayon.
It can seem that when a product is called Rayon, that the connotation is that it is now a synthetic fiber, but that is not the case. It is the process of taking a natural product and turning it into a fiver that can be woven.
BedVoyage bamboo linens are made from 100% bamboo, unlike many other bamboo companies which blend their bamboo with cotton. we have chosen to use the highest quality bamboo, the highest thread count and not to blend it with any other fiber.
We are required by the FTC to label our products as a Bamboo Viscose or Bamboo Rayon so that the consumer is aware of the process of how bamboo is created.
This is a definition of the making of our Eco-luxury 100% bamboo linens.”
A Naturopathic Physician, Amy Fasig, N.D. also provides some insight into bamboo as a linen. This is what she has to say about it:
“As a Naturopathic Physician, I see a lot of patients with multiple chemical sensitives or skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. It is important for them to limit their exposure to dust mites, bleach, disinfectants, and other common environmental allergens. Bed Voyage sheets provide an easy and practical way to do so at home and especially while traveling. They are one more toll health-conscious parents can use to protect their children from exposure to irritants when on vacation. Also, I know my menopausal patients will find the coolness of the bamboo helpful for their night sweats!”
