Bamboo yarn with natural UV resistance


In general, most fabrics can protect our skin from the sun’s UV rays, which is the reason for basal and squamous cell skin cancer and melanoma. However, studies have shown that bamboo fabric has an exceptionally high UV-resistant ability with only 0.6% of UV rays is leaked through the fabric surface. That is around 41,6 times more effective comparing to cotton fabric. Because of this, bamboo fabric has been a popular material not only in the casual fashion market but also in the sun protecting clothing segment.


More than that, Greenyarn’s Bamboo UVYartech is certified with UPF 50+, which is the highest UV-resistant rate comparing to other common fabrics. UPF or Ultraviolet Protection Factor indicates how much of the sun’s UV radiation is absorbed by the fabric. For example, a fabric with a UPF rating of 50 only allows 1/50th of the sun’s UV radiation to pass through it. UPF also includes both UVA and UVB protection. 


In conclusion, Greenyarn’s Bamboo UVYartech is the perfect choice for outerwear and especially for sun protecting garments because of its outstanding UV-protection performance.
