Bamboo does not have much stability, but has beautiful drape. It is extremely soft and comfortable for next-to-the-skin wear. Bamboo contains natural antibacterial bioagents that stay in the fiber even if it has been washed many times, and is also hypoallergenic. This makes it great for baby items or for people with lots of allergies.
If blended with a cotton fiber that has stability , it is also great for socks or sportswear because it wicks moisture away from the skin quickly.
