Let’s take a look at the benefits of Silk and Bamboo to see which would be the best fit for your loved ones this holiday season.
Believe or not, silk is one of the warmer underwear fabrics on the market. Although Silk has a bad rap for being rather thin and fragile, the fabric holds up very well. Ironically, silk fibers are one of the strongest fibers known to man. Silk underwear is best if you’re in moderately cool temperatures, rather than below-freezing temperatures. The reason why? Silk is great at retaining heat, it is a natural thermal regulator for the body. The material does breathe, but it is great at keeping heat in. When it’s cold the cold air is captured between the silk threads and the heat is kept inside of the fabric creating an isolating effect keeping you warm. The opposite effect goes for the Summer and keeping you cool. Silk is known to keep the body cooler during the summer and warmer during the winter.
Not only does silk keep you warm, but the fabric is luxuriously soft. Its natural fibers are breathable, anti-bacterial, and anti-static to keep you cool (or warm) and comfortable all day long. Silk does a wonderful job of adapting to your body and keeping everything balanced, thus why it’s increased in popularity. With a large variety of body styles to choose, from there’s something for any guy on your list. Think silk is for you or your loved ones?

Bamboo should be your fabric of choice because it’s anti-bacterial, moisture-wicking, and hypoallergenic. But, the one property that you should be most excited about when it comes to choosing a pair of underwear as a gift is that it’s thermal-controlled. Similar to silk, bamboo has a natural makeup that allows you to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Compared to silk, bamboo is more moisture-wicking and can pull sweat and moisture away from your body and keep you dry all day long. If you have someone on your shopping list that’s a heavy sweater or is generally more active, bamboo may be the choice. Additionally, bamboo is incredibly soft and will be sure to keep you comfortable all day.
One of the great things about bamboo fabric is that it doesn’t require chemical treatment. This should be important to you, because without chemical treatment the fibers of the underwear are rounder, and in turn, softer. Being that the fabric is softer, it is less likely to irritate the skin. Making it the perfect underwear choice for those who have very sensitive skin.
