The bloom is off the bamboo

I was interested in bamboo as a fiber until I realized it’s just rayon.

I guess as a source of cellulose, bamboo is as good or better than others. Wood pulp is better used as paper, I suppose. But I was feeling all sexy about the fiber. Same with “soy silk”… you can make rayon out of any source of cellulose. Hey, wouldn’t it be nice if you could make it from animal products? Then you could have a “pork silk” purse made out of a sow’s ear.
