New nano-technologies are also being introduced into the bamboo clothing industry.

GreenYarn, a new startup located in Boston, is developing a bamboo clothing line made from nano-particles of bamboo charcoal.  Their website explains their bamboo fabric benefits:" Eco-fabric, Greenyarn's trademark yarn and fiber is used in many Greenyarn products, and the benefits such as antibacterial, deodorizing and wicking, comes from the way this sustainable fiber is processed. No dyes or bleaches are used during manufacturing, and all benefits come naturally from bamboo charcoal grown in the mountains of Taiwan"

GreenYarn claims that using Eco-fabric generally will not cause any allergic reactions as Eco-fabric gets all its properties from bamboo and harmful chemicals are not used during production of Eco-fabric.

Greenyarn’s Eco-fabric is promoted as being anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-static, de-odorizing, breathable, thermal regulating (cool in hot weather and warm in cool weather), and environmentally friendly. Obviously, a significant part of Eco-fabric’s claims to sustainability depend upon the sustainability of the original cotton, polyester or nylon fibers that have been impregnated with the bamboo charcoal nano particles. In a footnote, Greenyarn mentions that the active bamboo charcoal ingredients will only remain active in the clothing for about six months of active use.
