Hypoallergenic: There are studies showing that bamboo has hypoallergenic properties. There are people who are allergic to cotton because of the chemical used during the process of producing such material. That being said, the bamboo fabric is a great alternative, provided that it is made naturally, It has less harmful chemicals and minimal off-gassing.
Moisture-Wicking: Compared to cotton, bamboo is 4 to 5 times more absorbent which is why it has moisture-wicking abilities.
