Bamboo absorbency video, pretty neat!

Just found this video and thought I'd share!

It works for me.

I would be curious as to what types of fabric those are as well as the fabric content. Fleece will absorb differently than linen, ya know? I wonder if they're the same type and weight. The video isn't good enough quality to be able to tell and they don't say.

Call me a skeptic.

I saw it - that is really cool. I have been trying to get my whole stash converted to bamboo.

Me too. I wish they would put more detail like WHAT kind of cotton and bamboo they used and maybe better video quality. It just says the bamboo is 70/30...so is that velour, terry, jersey, what???

i think i'd also like to see the wetness test where there's weight on the bamboo, and weight on the cotton and see which actually HOLDS more liquid, not just absorbs it.
i'm thinking cotton would win on this one, but not sure.

I've been dyeing my preflats and the dye does spread out better then the cotton - just like the video!
