    I love the feel of it, but it is so NOT environment friendly, the process they take it to make it is so harsh. I guess it would be as bamboo is a tree. :(

    I have heard that they call it "green" because it's a renewable resource, but that much of it requires a detailed chemical process to make it soft and is anything but green. The truly green process makes it just as nice but is very long and makes that type VERY costly. I need to do some more research before trying it.

    I found bamboo/cotton batting at Jo-Ann's. Is it safe to put in a baby blanket?

    isn't most everything recycled or 'green' expensive??! Recycled paper products are outrageous! Maybe they think since so many of us want to go green that we'll pay the extra?
    Natural bamboo is rough like linen. Bamboo processed into rayon is soft and silky. So it is just rayon made from bamboo instead of other plant material.
    ohhh...and it's "new" technically speaking, so they want to dangle it in front of us quilters like a shiny new toy.
    Hmm, I'm interested, but will just wait for the price to come down a bit.
    Soft and lofty sounds great! :thumbup:

    That is all I have used it for...no kids have been harmed from it yet!

    My bag says it is made from renewable resources, durable, antibacterials, breath ability and thin scrim to prevent stretching and bunching. 2-3% shrinkage. No need for prewashing. This is the Winline Brand.
