Bamboo fibre is a relatively new fibre. The fibre is produced from Bamboo pulp (like viscose pulp) which is obtained through a process of hydrolysis/alkalisation and bleaching of bamboo stems. The resulting pulp is wet spun in the same way as other pulp based fibres. The resulting fibre is white and silky in appearance and is a cool fibre as a result of its high absorbency, due to the fibre being full of cavities. The fibre is soft to handle with good absorbency and can be used in blends with other fibres or 100%. It also has the unique function of being antibacterial. The main producing country is China. We offer this in natural colours and also in 8 dyed shades. The dyes used are commercial acid dyes which conform with Oeko-Tex 100 quality system.

Linen is considered by many to be the oldest fibre used in the Western world, with fabrics having been found dating back to 10,000BC. It is a fibre whose production was centred round Europe since about 500AD, Irish linen being one of the earliest productions. Therefore the machinery, most suitable for processing flax, was developed in Europe. Today the Soviet Union produces most of the flax for fibre. Other producers include Belgium, Ireland and other nations of Eastern Europe...

Soybean is a new vegetable based fibre. It was invented in 1937 by Henry Ford and was called soy wool. This unique fibre was used in car pholstery at that time, but the fibre became victim to the second world war and also the advent of new man-made fibres, which were cheaper to produce. The fibre was re-invented in 1998 and promoted as an eco-fibre in 2000. The fibre is complementary in blends with other fibres and is not generally used on its own. In blends with Cashmere or wool it improves hang and drape qualities, giving a superior lustre to the product and helping to reduce rubbing/pilling. It is possible to use the fibre 100% in yarns. Absorption properties are similar to cotton and so the fibre feels cool. Its ventilation is superior to that of cotton with a silk-like appearance. The fibre is anti-ultraviolet and therefore, retains dyed colours well and is superior to viscose and silk in this respect. It is stronger than wool, cotton and silk but not polyester.
