More information about natural bamboo (bamboo linen)
There are two ways of processing the bamboo plant to create yarn. The first is a mechanical process, creating what is informally called bamboo linen, and the second, more popular approach, is the chemical process used for producing rayon or viscose fabric.
Mechanically produced bamboo - natural bamboo (bamboo linen)
Mechanically produced bamboo yarn requires no chemicals, pesticides or fungicides. Using a process similar to the one that produces linen from flax, bamboo fibers are raked and combed into long strands. The fibers are then drawn out and spun into a yarn that is silky and smooth to the touch.
There is very little natural bamboo on the market and the yarn is hard to find, becuse the production process is more labor intensive and costly.
Chemically processed bamboo
The method for producing bamboo viscose yarn requires a series of steps similar to those used for other rayon yarns. The process uses chemical solvents to dissolve the bamboo cellulose into a viscose solution.
Hydrogen peroxide is added as a stabilizer and the solution is forced through spinnerets into a hardening bath which causes thin streams of viscose bamboo solution to harden into bamboo cellulose fiber threads.
The hardening bath is usually a solution of water and methanol, ethanol or a similar alcohol. The regenerated bamboo fiber threads can then be spun into bamboo yarn for weaving into fabric.

The wrap is suitable for newborns and toddlers. The baby camel yarn in combination with the Angel Wing pattern makes this wrap amazingly supportive, but gentle for your shoulders.
The yarn comes from the warm undercoat from the two-humped Bactrian baby camel. This type of camel lives mainly in the inner Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and Afghanistan. They are tended by nomadic herders. In the winter the Bactrian camels grow a thick warm coat to protect themselves from the cold. In spring they naturally shed their soft under hair which is collected by the herders.
The baby camel hair has a structire similar to cashmere. It makes a lightweight, super soft yarn with thermal regulation.
