You've heard of polyester bed sheets, polycotton, Lyocell and Tencel. Perhaps you've even had renowned Egyptian cotton sheets. But we'll bet you've never felt the luxurious and cozy feel of bamboo sheets. It's a surprising material to make bedsheets from. After all, bamboo has a reputation for strength and rigidity. Yet, this grass – it's not actually a tree – produces bamboo sheets that give you a night of unparalleled sleep. Soft, breathable, and hypoallergenic, bamboo is like no textile you've felt before.
Here's why you should choose bamboo sheets.
Bamboo sheets are soft – more like silk than cotton. Put the miraculous material under a microscope, and you'll see fewer sharp bits in the fibers. Instead, it's a smooth, buttery soft feel that's quite simply unparalleled.
Yet, for all their softness, bamboo sheets are more durable than cotton. So long as you wash them at a low temperature, they'll last much longer than their cotton counterparts.
Adjusts to your body temperature
Bamboo stalks breath: no, really! It's a remarkable factor that leaves millions of micro-perforations in the bamboo yarn. The result – a cozy fabric that breathes as you sleep. It means no matter the weather; your sheets regulate your body temperature.
And they've also got super strong wicking properties, keeping the moisture off your skin as you sleep.
Cotton sheets retain moisture and warmth, creating a breeding ground for bacteria. Because bamboo sheets regulate your moisture and temperature levels, they reduce bacterial growth – it'll also eliminate odors from such growth too.
So, no more smelly, soggy sheets. You'll wake up fresh and odor-free.
Eco-friendly & Sustainable
Perhaps the greatest advantage of bamboo sheets is their benefit to the planet. Bamboo is amongst the most ecological materials in the world. It grows incredibly quickly, using limited resources. And bamboo doesn't need to be replanted year after year – unlike cotton – so it builds soils rather than draining them. No old growth forests are cut down, unlike other fibers. In fact, bamboo actually sequesters carbon dioxide, helping to tackle global warming. Bamboo is also cultivated without harmful fertilizers and pesticides, which leach into the surrounding soils, poisoning the landscape. Cotton, for example, consumes 25% of the world's water and pesticide supply.
Because bamboo sheets repel dust, doctors recommend them for people with asthma, eczema, dermatitis, and other dust-based allergies. It's not a benefit for everyone, but it's life-changing for those struggling with these conditions.
Bamboo sheets are cozy, luxurious, and affordable
It sounds too good to be true, right? Bamboo is a wonder material. There's no good reason not to choose bamboo sheets with significant environmental benefits, a better night's sleep, and greater durability.
