Give a big hand to bamboo: it's a fast-growing plant that makes soft, strong natural fabric. It's therefore ideal for these new gloves from ethical sportswear brand Sundried.
The black gloves' sweat-wicking fabric – made up of 90 per cent bamboo and ten per cent dry yarn – are perfect for running in colder temperatures, but the silicone print is designed to provide good grip for cyclists. They're even touchscreen-sensitive so you can use performance apps or choose music on the go.
"I'm incredibly pleased with our new ethical winter gloves," says Sundried CEO Daniel Puddick. "The Sundried black knit gloves are made from 90 per cent bamboo which is a very sustainable material, plus it creates ultra soft fabrics which are perfect for sportswear."
Just in time for falling temperatures, Sundried has launched other new products including a seamless long-sleeved training top in organic bamboo, available in a sunny turquoise to remind you of summer.
Sundried's range also includes tops made of recycled coffee grounds, to really get you on your bike in the mornings.
