We are delighted to introduce a small selection of Wayi bamboo socks for purchase at The Boy’s Store. Bamboo socks absorb four times more than cotton and unlike cotton the more a bamboo garment is washed the softer it gets. It is a natural bacteria inhibitor so boys' bamboo socks will stay fresh longer and no bleach will be needed when washing them. Just a little cold water and a line to dry them. You can use your dryer is you prefer just remove them promptly. I bought a pair for myself to get a real feel of these socks. I now wish I had splurged for more than the one pair.

A little about bamboo. It is one of the world’s most prolific and fastest growing plants. It is widely grown throughout Asia. More importantly it is grown without pesticides in “plantations”. These plantations were set-up to cultivate bamboo in such a way as not to interfere with the Panda habitat. It can grow as much as 18” over night and takes in 5 times as much green house gas and produces 35% more oxygen than an equivalent stand of trees.

Bamboo fiber is thinner than human hair and very soft because it has a round smooth surface. Unlike some natural fibers such as hemp or even wool, bamboo is unlikely to cause allergic reactions in individuals sensitive to other natural substances.

Some bamboo fibers’ characteristics:

  • Hollow which allows bamboo fabrics to breathe
  • Filled with micros holes which allows better ventilation and moisture absorption
  • Naturally anti-bacterial
  • Anti-static so it does not cling
  • 100% biodegradable
  • Round and smooth making it soft - plus it softens with repeated washings

Friendly to the environment, culturally and economically progressive, bamboo fabrics are an excellent, guilt free way to pamper your little boy.
