Bamboo yarn fabrics dyeing and finishing
Dying and Finishing of Bamboo Textile
Light sergeing, enzyme de-sizing, moderate bleaching and semi-mercerizing should be applied to the bamboo fabric during its dying and finishing process. Avoid drastic conditions and use small mechanical tension.
An interesting information was recently obtained from the market that 100% bamboo yarns show a great elasticity (nearly 20%) in the yarn. Even in woven fabrics a remarkable elasticity can be obtained. Our supplier partner even thinks that in 100% bamboo fabrics there is no need of elasthanes.
Another positive point besides the already known ones is that bamboo fabrics need less dyestuffs than cotton, modal or viscose. It seems that the absorption of dyestuffs is remarkably better. Bamboo absorbs the dye stuffs faster and shows the colors better.
Bamboo is considered as a much superior fiber and playing in a category of its own. In softness it even beats Tencel. Our supplier partner in Turkey has been successfully spinning a Ne 60/1. Upon special order we are also able to supply it in S + Z spin twist for Santoni seamless knitting.
