Why Bamboo?

 

They use bamboo yarn for the following reasons:

Final Word

 

You can purchase online any of their products online on their website here, or on their respective regional websites: UK, US.

With that in mind, don’t forget to purchase from the online store closest to you.

When we first ordered, we almost purchased from the US-based online store, until we realised that there was a UK one.  We do not live in the UK but we contacted them via email and they were more than happy to deliver to another country nearby at a higher cost.
