Why We Love Bamboo Rayon & Merino Wool
Simply put, bamboo is a remarkable, highly versatile natural resource. It's quickly become one of the most eco-friendly fabrics in the world. Merino wool is lightweight, moisture-wicking, durable and super soft. We're proud to use these in our custom, Canadian-made Ry & Pen products for your little ones.
Not only do these materials have tremendous environmental impact, but they also happens to be one of the highest quality fabrics we can use to make our clothing.
BENEFITS OF BAMBOO
Bamboo is Soft, Silky Luxury.
Soft, silky and cool to the touch - it pretty much feels like you're wearing a cloud.
Bamboo is UV Protective.
Its inherent UV protective properties help protect the little ones you love from the sun's rays.
Bamboo is Hypoallergenic.
The eco-friendly bamboo fibres do not irritate the skin and is far gentler than other man-made fabrics. Being an all-natural and organic product, it's a great solution for those with sensitive skin so it's extra gentle on your loved ones.
Bamboo is Durable & Long-Lasting.
Unlike many other 'traditional' fabrics you'll find with big box store value brands, bamboo is stronger, has better moisture-wicking properties and is far more resilient for long-term wear and tear.
Bamboo is Breathable and Thermo-Regulating.
One of the most well-known and loved aspects of bamboo clothing is the fact that it helps regulate temperature better than almost any other fabric. Whatever the weather - your little ones will stay cool (in the heat) and warm (in the cold).
Bamboo is Eco-Friendly, Sustainable & Biodegradable.
Because bamboo doesn't require any chemicals whatsoever, and demands very little water to grow, it's an environmental wonderplant.
As one of the fastest-growing plants in the world, bamboo can replenish itself within a year and some species grow a whopping 120 centimetres per day.
It's naturally prolific and resilient, not needing fertilizers to boost its growth - nor does it need pesticides given its natural ability to fend off pests.
BENEFITS OF MERINO WOOL
Merino Wool Neutralizes Unwanted Odours.
Merino wool repels bacteria thanks to its unique fibres with scaled surfaces. This helps make it difficult for yucky and unwanted odours to form.
Merino Wool is Moisture-Regulating.
When merino wool is wet or sweaty, it still keeps you nice and warm. This is all thanks to its unique exothermic properties.
Merino Wool Helps Regulate Temperature.
Merino wool is comfy and cozy regardless of temperature. It never feels too bulky or stuff, even when it's warm outside. This is all because of the tiny air chambers between the individual wool fibres.
Merino Wool is Silky Soft & Lightweight.
Unlike other types of wool or synthetic fibres, merino wool is incredibly soft, smooth and extra light - making it one of the most premium materials you can use to create high-performance garments.
Merino Wool is Sustainable.
Depending on the breed, merino sheep are shorn 1 to 2 times a year, so they can grow a new coat. All that is needed for these natural fibres to grow is water, fresh air, sun and yummy grass. Just the basic, natural stuff from Mother Nature!
