When you think of bamboo, you maybe think of tall thin plants and cute pandas happily munching. But you should be thinking of socks.
Yes, socks! Bamboo fiber is an amazing new environmentally sound material that is perfect for socks.
Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of bamboo fiber that makes it a great material for socks as well as other articles of clothing. The 6 Benefits of Bamboo Fiber are:
Save money in the long run
Just like the raw plant itself, bamboo fiber is very strong, flexible and durable. How many of your socks get worn through and end up ruined, filled with holes? It’s a waste of money having to buy socks just to throw them out months later. Bamboo fiber socks are not only soft and comfy, but will be strong enough to resist tearing and wearing through, despite how much you wear them or how active you are. This is because the spun rayon fibers are created as a monofilament yarn. What does this mean? Unlike regular threads, there are no short strands that will break or wear down.
Keep yourself dry
Believe it or not, clothing made of bamboo fiber is more absorbent than other materials. It is naturally porous and helps to keep moisture away from the body. The fibers will dry quickly so sweat and humidity are not held in against your skin. This means no more smelly socks after a tough workout! Your bamboo fiber socks will stay fresher, longer.
Warm in the winter, cool in the summer
If you’re an active person, you know that staying cool in the summer is hard when you move around a lot. Socks can be great for keeping warm in winter, but in the summer time they just make your feet hot and sweaty. But bamboo fiber adapts to your body’s temperature and helps regulate you, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter like a good pair of socks should.
Keep yourself clean
Have you ever hear of antibacterial socks? Now you have! Bamboo fiber is naturally antibacterial, discouraging the formation of bacteria and slowing down the growth of mildew and fungus. This is great for those who are sensitive to allergies or conditions such as athlete's foot
Protect the environment
Bamboo fiber is a great sustainable resource. Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on Earth so bamboo fiber materials can be produced at high demand without depleting the source. It can be raised in a healthy way with no fertilizers or pesticides. Bamboo plants improve the quality of the soil and air around them, so they naturally give back to the environment. And once thrown away, the fibers are 100% biodegradable since they are made of a natural material.
Always look snazzy
The last benefit of bamboo fiber socks is how well they pair with the rest of your outfit! Edge Signature ties go with anything, but they are best matched with a snazzy pair of bamboo fiber socks.
