I have been looking into more and more textile alternatives. Over time, I will share with you what I have learned.
I learned about bamboo as an alternative yesterday. In the store, there is a beautiful bamboo shawl we sell in the store. And it is so soft. Certainly I would never want to give up quality for environmental reasons, but the texture felt so soft against my skin.
I did a little research on bamboo and I learned that it:
-machine washes on gentle and can be hung to dry
-naturally somewhat wrinkle resistant
-absorb moisture, keeping your skin dry.
To learn more, go to this bamboo online store.
