It took me months...maybe years of fabric hunting before finding the perfect bamboo blend to use for Moosey Moose.
There were so many "must-haves". Not only did it have to be functional to help deliver the adjustable features, but it also had to be soft, it had to be eco-friendly, and it had to wash well over time with proper care.
Here are some incredible facts I discovered along the way:
Bamboo is actually a grass which explains why it grows so quickly. In fact, bamboo matures in 3-5 years making it one of the fastest growing plants on the planet. The fastest recorded growth was 47.6" in just one day!
ORGANIC BEFORE IT WAS A BUZZWORD
Bamboo is one of the most organically sustainable resources on the planet! It doesn't require pesticides, herbicides, and even replants itself.
GREENHOUSE GASES GOT YOU DOWN?
Bamboo actually absorbs carbon dioxide and releases 35% more oxygen back into the environment than the same stand of hardwood trees.
SOFT and HYPOALLERGENIC
Twice as soft as cotton, bamboo is luxuriously comfortable against even the most sensitive skin. And remember: no harsh chemicals or pesticides during the growth process makes for happy baby skin.
COOL & WARM
in more ways than one! Bamboo is naturally moisture-wicking and 3 degrees cooler than cotton. It also has thermo-regulating properties making it perfect to keep babies cool in the summer and warm in chillier months.
Bamboo naturally repels odors and allergens and has anti-bacterial
CARING FOR YOUR BAMBOO GROW ROMPER
Does Bamboo Shrink?
Yes, a bit...but don’t worry! Bamboo will shrink up to 5% on the first wash, however, we’ve cut the clothes to take that into account.
Wash on cold and hang to dry for best results and lasting softness.
