The bast bamboo process is very similar to the retting process used for flax production.  The Handspinner’s Handbook by Bette Hochberg tells us that “bast fibers are taken from the center stalk of the plant. They are long fibrous strands found between the outer bark and inner core of the stem.” Bast bamboo has a similar feel to flax and linen and can be used in many of the same applications. Bast bamboo feels courser than viscose but softens with each wash and wear. Bast bamboo is ideal for creating light weight garments, and many choose to use bast for weaving because of its strength.
