from website: “Bamboo is one of nature’s most sustainable fibers. It grows without chemicals, improves the soil, holds groundwater, and removes carbon from the atmosphere faster than almost anything else. Biodegradable and renewable -- a true friend of the earth! You’ll find that it is also a favorite resource in your fiber stash and wardrobe -- soft, strong, and naturally resistant to bacteria and mildew. Bamboo has such excellent properties against the skin that it is replacing cotton as the first choice for underwear in many parts of the world. We designed BAMBUSA to satisfy one other of your cravings -- speed. This is a big, robust, Rubenesquely lusty Bamboo yarn that will have you churning out projects with blinding speed. Yet modest cost. BAMBUSA looks and feels like fine silk, but will leave enough funds to celebrate success in your favorite special way. In advance then, congratulations!”
