Carbonized Bamboo (Top)


100% Carbonized Rayon from Bamboo.

Extremely clean combed top. Beautiful charcoal grey-black. Staple length is 4 inches.

A step beyond just bamboo, with a complicated method of manufacture that involves heating the fibres to an extreme temperature, literally turning them in to carbon strands. Fibres are extremely fine and soft with an unusual quality of a matte finish but good lustre. This is said to be amazing spun by itself but also has many blending possibilies. We have heard that it will not take dyes of any kind, but we’ve not tried it either. Also sold under the trade name Black Diamond.
