So we all are lured to Bamboo's lovely sheen and silk like qualities but it is also Flammable.
During black sheep Judith gave many classes and in one she told this story. Judith decided to do some dying with Bamboo and space dyed it. She set it in her Ziploc bag and placed it in the microwave to set the color, A few moments later the bamboo roving set fire. Judith grabbed a pot holder and took the tray out then put a pan lid over the flaming bamboo. When she lifted the lid after the fire was out it reignited. Only after she dumped the whole thing into the sink did the flames fully go out. Bamboo is a resinous fiber so it can melt then burn and burn and burn. I wouldn't believe it from anyone else. I know I've made gifts for loved ones with bamboo but now I'll be a little more careful in terms of what I do with it.
