Eco-fabric and explanation.
Q: What benefits does Eco-fabric
A: Eco-fabric is antibacterial, antifungal, breathable,
cool, thermal regulating, reduces static electricity, absorbs
and emits far infrared radiation, de-odorizes, green and
Q: How does Eco-fabric get its
antibacterial and antifungal property?
A: Bamboo thrives naturally without using any pesticide
and bamboo-carbon nano particles still retains its natural
antibacterial, antifungal, bacteriostasis and deodorization
properties. Eco-fabric contains bamboo-carbon nano particles
hence also has those properties.
Q: Does Eco-fabric contain antimicrobial
agent to be anti-bacterial?
A: As Eco-fabric has natural antibiosis function, it does
not need antimicrobial agent to be antibacterial. It also
should not cause any allergic reaction to the skin, unlike
other fibers sterilized with antimicrobial agent.
Q: Why is Eco-fabric breathable
Bamboo-carbon yarn has a cross-section filled with various
micro-gaps and micro-holes, hence compared to other conventional
fabric; it has better moisture absorption and ventilation.
Eco-fabric products can absorb and disperse sweat fast,
making them feel dry and comfortable. They also do not stick
to skin during hot summer days.
Q: How does
Eco-fabric get its thermal regulating property?
A: As we use only fiber that contain a high concentration
of Bamboo-carbon nano particles, the fiber traps heat and thermal
regulates better. Together with our weaving methods, Eco-fabric
products not only feel dry during hot days, they also have great
insulating effect of maintaining temperature in the cold.
Q: Why does Eco-fabric
absorb and emit of Far Infrared Radiation?
A: Bamboo-carbon nano particles can absorb far infrared
radiation from the environment, and emit them to help in
cell activation, promotes blood circulation and metabolism
in the long run.
Q: Why does Eco-fabric not cause
A: Bamboo-carbon nano is a conductive material, and its
presence in fabric will make Eco-fabric have a balanced
charge. Test result show that when Eco-fabric is rubbed
against polyester, nylon and other synthetic fabrics and
surfaces, it will not have any charge buildup at all. Hence,
the wearer of Eco-fabric products will not experience static
electrical shock even in dry weather conditions.
How is Eco-fabric de-odorizing?
A: As bamboo-carbon has porous structure. Eco-fabric
can absorb and decompose benzene, phenol, methyl alcohol,
and other harmful substances.
Q: Does the production of Eco-fabric
harm the environment?
A: Eco-fabric gets all its above properties from bamboo.
Harmful chemicals are not used during production of
Eco-fabric. In fact, Greenyarn is getting CAS certification
on its products.
Q: Does Eco-fabric
lose its properties after washing?
A: As the bamboo-carbon nano particles is distributed inside
fibers rather than on their surface, Eco-fabric is washable
without diminishing the effectiveness of the carbon powder's
special qualities even after 50 washes.
Other questions on Eco-fabric
Q: What is Eco-fabric?
A: Eco-fabric is fabric made by Greenyarn that contains
nano-particles of bamboo-charcoal. (For more information
go to technology section of this webpage)
Q: What colors is Eco-fabric available
A: Eco-fabric currently has several designs found under
the product link. Most Eco-fabric contains grey-colored
bamboo-carbon nano-particles and is generally contains shades
of grey as we do not use chemicals to dye Eco-fabric.
Q: What is the main difference
between Eco-fabric and other fabric that contains bamboo
A: Greenyarn uses fiber containing the highest concentration of
nano-particles of bamboo-charcoal. Greenyarn also further
processes this fiber to ensure a higher quality yarn for Greenyarn
products. Processing varies depending on the usage. Greenyarn also
has high level of quality assurance to ensure that every product
with Eco-Fabric logo is of high quality and functions as claimed.
Greenyarn also believes in protecting the environment, and in the
production of Eco-fabric, effort is put in to ensure minimal
pollution to the environment. All Eco-fabric products are
tested for their benefits and quality of product.
Questions on Greenyarn Socks
Q: What is needle count?
A: Needle count is the count on total number of needles used in knitting a sock.
The higher the needle count relative to the size of the cylinder results in close
stitches and a fine gauge.
Q: Why is higher needle count better?
A: In general, higher needle count machines makes durable denser socks (not thicker) and
the fine gauge allows the socks to fit better.
Q: What are the benefits of Greenyarn Socks?
A: Greenyarn socks contain Eco-fabric, so they have all the benefits of Eco-fabric.
Furthermore, as it is 200 needle count, cushioned sole, the cushioning is so dense that it does not flatten,
making the socks cushioning all day long. It has 4 sizes as our feet differ in sizes and it has an arch band and
Y-heel tab to fit better, so that the socks do not bunch up after prolonged wear.
Q: What are some high needle count socks so expensive?
A: High needle count socks take a much longer time to knit. They are also newer machines that
make these finer socks. Regular socks take about 1 minute a pair to manufacture, and 200 needle
count socks take 4 minutes each sock. Our machines cost 10 times that of a regular sock machine
and as there are more needles, maintenance costs are also higher. Greenyarn owns their own technology
and strive to make the socks affordable so that everyone that wants comfort can get these socks.
Q: Does the cushioning help relief pain in knees and heels?
A: The cushioning that Greenyarn socks provide all day reduces the impact everytime you take a step.
With more shock absorbed, the pain in the heels and knees felt at the end of the day is greatly reduced.
Q: Do I need special care instructions for the Eco-fabric socks?
A: As the nano bamboo charcoal is embedded in the socks, it will not wash off, so you can treat it like a
normal cotton socks, but just do not use bleach them. These socks can be machine washed. For the socks
to last longer, wash them in cold or warm water, do not throw them in the dryer, and do not wring dry.
