I used to think that I knew a lot about different fibers used in both clothing and bedding. Before I became a teacher, I used to be a manager for a big box housewares retailer as well as a big box clothing store.
I was always under the impression that the absolute softest fiber was either cashmere or an Egyptian cotton in an extremely high thread count. Boy, have I discovered that I was wrong. Cloth made from bamboo is sinfully soft and much softer than any of the high quality sheets I currently have.
I recently had the opportunity to learn much more about the benefits of bamboo by reviewing the Women's Bamboo Circle Top from Green Earth Bamboo. Keep reading to learn much more!
Green Earth Bamboo carries a wide variety of bamboo clothing, bamboo bedding, bamboo baby products and bamboo bath products, which are all composed of viscose from bamboo fabric, made from certified USDA organic bamboo. Now, if you're like me, you've never heard of viscose from bamboo before. After working with Green Earth Bamboo, I learned a whole host of interesting bamboo facts, such as:
- Bamboo is naturally antimicrobial and anti-fungal in its raw state.
- Bamboo fiber is softer than cotton, cashmere and silk.
- Bamboo is more durable and less expensive than silk or cashmere, but has a very high soil release value and can be conveniently cleaned in your washer and dryer.
- Bamboo is non-irritating to the skin, and works extremely well for anyone having allergies, eczema, dermatitis or other skin sensitivities.
- Bamboo feels better on your skin, and it's breathable, which keeps you drier.
After reading all about the many benefits of viscose from bamboo, I just had to see it for myself. I chose the Women's Bamboo Circle Top in Ginger, for I loved the casual, yet sophisticated style of this top. The blousy look is great for camouflaging any bulges in your midsection, while still looking fashionably sharp. Once I received the circle top in the mail, I was definitely sold on viscose from bamboo! This shirt was extremely soft and couldn't have felt better to wear.
I also loved the design of this shirt and how it hugged you in all the right places, such as around your hips and at the neckline, as well as draped nicely in all the right places. I plan on wearing this with a pair of khakis, a denim jacket and a pair of heels for an upcoming birthday party. With the Bamboo Circle Top, I know that I will be comfortable, dry and stylish throughout the day.
I highly recommend shopping Green Earth Bamboo for a number of terrific fashions for both yourself and your home, all composed of an extremely soft, hypoallergenic, durable and organic fabric. Green Earth Bamboo also offers a 30-day money back guarantee on all of their products, so there's absolutely no risk in trying out this eco-friendly fabric for yourself.

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
