Bamboo is an eco-friendly sustainable fabric, more eco-friendly than a lot of other fabrics on the market. It is incredibly soft and breathable, providing the upmost comfort. Bamboo is perfect for any temperature and quickly absorbs and evaporates humidity.
What are the benefits to wearing Bamboo?
In addition to comfort from the soft luxurious texture, bamboo is perfect for those who have dry skin, sensitive skin or typically experience skin irritation. Bamboo is one of the most highly recommended fabrics in the world. It is hypoallergenic and breathes better than most fabrics including cotton. Bamboo aids in the prevention of overheating and works not only for baby but for adults too!
Are all Bamboo fabrics the same?
No. Though all types of Bamboo fabric have a breathable, soft feel, some may be heavier than others while some may be lighter than others. At Royal Babies & Tots, we use a classic-weight bamboo which most are accustomed to and a slightly thicker bamboo. Don’t worry, your little one will still get the same type of comfort and we will always specify the thickness in the item's description section. Here are a few levels we normally use for our collections:
Lightweight Bamboo (160gsm)
Classic Bamboo (180gsm) - most commonly used in the bamboo world
Classic Plush Bamboo (210gsm)
Thicker Bamboo (240gsm) - our most commonly used
How do I care for my Bamboo?
General Care - Bamboo is delicate so you too must be as delicate as possible and handle with care. Garments with snaps should NOT be pulled by the fabric. To avoid tears, carefully unsnap buttons directly from the snaps.
Washing - Machine wash cold on a delicate cycle, inside out with like colors. Use a detergent free of dyes, fragrances, and any other ingredients that may cause irritation to your little one’s skin. We recommend free & clear detergents. It is best to hang dry or lay flat to dry after washing. If you must place your garments in the dryer be sure to tumble dry low.
DO’s, DONT’s, & MAYBE’s
