Mission: To make mechanically processed bamboo yarn eco-friendly, accessible and affordable.
Bamboo yarn has the potential to be the world's most sustainable yarn.
Most of the bamboo yarn being made today uses strong chemical solvents that raise both health and environmental concerns.
Bamboo yarn can be made "mechanically" by crushing the bamboo, applying natural enzymes and then combing out and spinning the natural fibers. This process is exceptionally environmentally friendly but not yet commercially viable or affordable.
The Bambo Yarn Project was launched in May 2012 and is an effort to bring together a team of people to figure out how to make naturally (mechanically) processed bamboo yarn accessible and affordable.
