Interesting -- is non-viscose spun? Or is it processed like linen.

And me, Su! And to add insult to injury, non-viscosed bamboo fibre is very nice, if you can get hold of it - I got some from France, but it has been overtaken by the bright, shiny viscosed bamboo.
Additionally, the Chinese are reputed to be destroying rainforest to grow more bamboo (OK, I know bamboo grows in rainforests, but so does lots of other stuff) and putting fertilizer on it to increase the yield - some of this plant grows at 30' a day with no extra help...
