Carbonised Bamboo 

50g (1.8oz)

This bamboo, like nearly all bamboo fibre available, is made using a chemical process. Just like viscose or rayon the bamboo is dissolved in to a pulp, and then squirted through very fine nozzles to produce an extruded fibre. The quick growing mature of bamboo makes it ideal for textile use, and it doesn’t need as much water or pesticides as cotton. The carbonised bamboo is heated to a very high temperature, which turns the colour naturally grey, and changes the feel of the fibre, it’s much more matte, with a slight chalky feel. 



Whether you're a spinner, felter, or mixed media artist you'll love working with this fibre.
