Bamboo clothing’s the new thing – its fabric’s similar to the softness of silk, and the fibres are naturally smoother and rounder so don’t irritate the skin like wool or hemp can.
It’s also antibacterial and anti-fungal, so you feel fresher and stay odour-free for longer.

This Tarmachan quarter zip bamboo knit from BAM Bamboo Clothing’s a nice jumper for both going out and for under your jacket on the bike too. It’s very warm, very soft, and very modern, and won’t get you all hot and sweaty even when (if?) the temperature rises above feckin’ freezin’.
Available in a kind o’ red, and a much more subtle blue, it, and a huge range of other bamboo products, is available from BAM on 01752 581458 or www.bambooclothing.co.uk
