[RC] saddle pads using bamboo fabric - Lynn White

My mom has a bamboo T-shirt that she LOVES. Darn thing feels like silk.  She 
likes it so much she hand washes it and refuses to put it in the dryer...and 
for a t-shirt nevertheless.  She got it from "Clothing Matters"  Here is their 
website:  http://www.clothingmatters.net/index.html

They also have a line of hemp and other organic blends. 

Since I get just about all my T-shirts as ride prizes I don't buy t-shirts 
(thank you Steph!).  But if I did buy new shirts I'd definatley buy one of 
these Bamboo ones.

Now as for saddle pads, the only issue I see with this fabric is that it would 
slip.  Bamboo is not a barbed fiber like wool.  So I'll stick with wool for 
saddle pads unless someone can come up with a wool/bamboo blend!
