Bamboo is a Naturally Anti-Static Fiber

What Makes Bamboo So Comfortable?

Do you remember the first time you tried on a YALA bamboo shirt? I do! 

When I ran my hand down my arm, I was amazed by how soft and smooth the fabric felt. It was love at first touch, even before I learned about YALA's commitment to fair trade and sustainability. 

This got me wondering, what exactly makes bamboo so dang comfortable? So I did some reading.

The Many Benefits of Bamboo

The first time I wore bamboo, it was a warm autumn day. My new shirt had long sleeves, so I thought I might be too hot. But it breathed and kept me cool. Later, when the sun went low, the shirt somehow knew to warm me up. 

It turns out I didn't imagine this. Bamboo fiber naturally regulates temperature and wicks moisture. It also has a high UPF to protect my skin from UV rays, and it's antimicrobial, so it keeps me feeling fresh on hectic days. 

Bamboo Fabric Resists Static

But none of this explained why my bamboo shirt moved so freely or had such a flattering drape. It turns out bamboo fabric is naturally anti-static. This does more than prevent it from zapping when pulled from the dryer!

Bamboo's anti-static nature also keeps it from clinging to itself and other garments, which is why bamboo fabric drapes and moves so effortlessly. Bamboo's anti-static nature makes it a superior choice for pajamas, nightgowns, bedding, dresses, and tops.

So whether you're a light sleeper or a frequent flyer, a wild dancer, or a dedicated lounger, we invite you to experience the superior comfort of YALA. Save the fabric softener and fight static naturally with anti-static bamboo!
