NATURAL FIBERS

COTTON

The most  widely-used natural fiber,  highly-versatile cotton  is known  for its strength  and comfort and is used in an amazingly wide variety of textile materials.  Cotton makes a soft, breathable textile and has become the most widely used natural-fiber cloth in clothing.

WOOL

Wool is a durable, natural fiber that it is comfortable, retains it's shape, resists dirt and static electricity,  repels water, and is fire resistant.   Wool garments  draw moisture away from the body,  absorb  odors,  and  allow  your skin  to  breathe  while   providing  excellent  thermal properties.

BAMBOO

Bamboo fiber resembles cotton in its unspun form, a puffball  of light,  airy fibers.   To make bamboo fiber,  bamboo  is heavily  pulped until  it separates  into thin component threads of fiber, which can be spun and dyed for weaving into cloth.  Bamboo fiber is more sustainable than most textile fibers.  Bamboo fabric is light and strong, has excellent wicking properties, and is to some extent antibacterial.

SOYBEAN

Soybean garments have a luxurious appearance with the feel of cashmere.   With the luster of silk, soybean garments have elegant draping abilities, resist wrinkling, and provide better ventilation than cotton.  Soybean fibers have higher breaking strength  than wool,  cotton or silk, a moisture absorption equal to cotton, and a warmth retention like wool.  Soybean also has  little  shrinkage,  antibacterial  qualities,  have  good color-fast  and  dyeing  properties.  Soybean is sunlight resistant, has perspiration fastness, dries quickly and easily and is very lightweight.
