About Bamboo Viscose Linens
Bamboo viscose linen is made by separating the leaves of bamboo grass into small threads, which are spun together for knitting or weaving. Those in the know appreciate that bamboo viscose is a natural and eco-friendly choice of linen, as it doesn’t require a lot of water or pesticides to grow, and the plant even cleans the air as it matures.
Bamboo viscose has become a popular choice of material for bath linens because of its antibacterial properties, absorbency, breathability, and ultra softness — all which make it great for sensitive skin. It resists wrinkling and is also biodegradable.
Bath linens, clothing, bedding, and pillows made of bamboo viscose can all be thrown in the washing machine, just like every other item of clothing you have. They usually come pre-washed, so you don't typically need to worry about shrinkage. The rule of thumb when it comes to care is that the gentler you are with your bamboo viscose bath linens, the longer they will last. This means using cool temperatures in the washer and dryer or laying them out to dry. We’ll get into specifics below.
