Why We Love Fair Trade Bamboo Socks…

There are many reasons why bamboo viscose yarn is good for the environment. Bamboo grows without the need for fertilisers or pesticides. because it naturally requires less water – about a third of the amound of water required to grow cotton, farmers don’t need to irrigate their crop, saving water in a country where water shorages are a big probem.

Bamboo yeuilds are ten times higher per hectare than cotton and the plant rarely nees replacening, sprouting on its own, Bamboo yarns require less dye than cotton and keep their colour for longer.
