5 Benefits of bamboo for yoga wear

It’s time to ditch the ‘high-tech’ man made fibres for your yoga/sports wear, nature’s got the answer. We’ve listed 5 simples reasons why we believe bamboo is the perfect active wear material.

1. Climate Control

Bamboo fabric is a hollow micro-fibre allowing air to circulate properly, allowing your skin to breathe while maintaining a comfortable temperature in all climates. So whether your stress busting and taking it easy or pushing your body to the limits you’ll always be comfortable wearing bamboo.

2. Super Soft

Bamboo fabric has been compared to cashmere or silk and if you have ever worn bamboo clothing before you’ll understand why. Raw bamboo is treated with sodium hydroxide, commonly known as caustic soda, and carbon disulfide, two natural compounds. So not only are they silky to the touch, they are also 100% organic.

3. Moisture Wicking

Bamboo fabric is highly absorbent and wicks away moisture 4 times faster than cotton, keeping you dry and comfortable even in hot and humid climates or during intense exercise.

4. Anti-Static & Anti-Bacterial

Bamboo clothing glides over skin and is has natural wrinkle-resistance allowing it to move freely with the body, perfect for those more technical poses. Bamboo is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal due to a unique bacteriostatic agent called “bamboo kun” which helps resist harbouring odours.

5. UV Protection

Bamboo fabric can provide ultraviolet protection up to a factor (UPF) of 40+, meaning bamboo clothing blocks out almost 97.5% of the harmful UV rays. When wearing bamboo clothing you can practice your yoga outdoors without any worries of skin damage.
