Bamboo rayon or viscose is the most common fiber
used for the production of bamboo sheets. It’s the
first generation of the cellulosic fibers derived from
the bamboo plant. It’s breathable and comfy to use.
However, you have to choose one that’s processed
without using chlorine or bleach.
Next, we have the second generation fabric called
modal. This is extra soft and bears the high-wet
strength, making it machine-washable. It’s also safe
to tumble dry. In addition, modal bamboo fabric is
usually used for clothing and outerwear bamboo
Also, the modal bamboo fabric has a brighter color. It
doesn’t gray quickly, as compared to cotton. In fact, the
production of modal doesn’t require bleaching. Aside from
that, the smooth surface of modal fabric makes it less
likely for minerals to deposit into it. This is why it’s a
great bedding sheet for areas with hard water.
