If you own a set of Bamboo sheets, you’re probably familiar with their incredible silky softness and the feeling of luxury they bring to your bed. If you don’t, then we can’t wait for you to discover how good they feel. Here are a few of the key reasons we love Bamboo sheets. Some of them may surprise you…
Bamboo bed sheets are silky soft
Bamboo sheets have the soft, buttery feel of silk or cashmere, providing a luxurious base for a good night’s sleep. As an added bonus, they’re usually cheaper than their aforementioned counterparts, thanks to the smaller production costs associated with the material.
Bamboo is eco-friendly
Bamboo is one of the most eco-friendly materials out there. It’s fast growing, requires no pesticides, gets all the water it needs from natural rainfall. It’s also carbon neutral and biodegradable, so when it does come time to dispose of your sheets, you can rest assured they won’t hang around in landfill for years on end.
Bamboo bedspreads are hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial and odour-resistant
Because bamboo fibres are made without any chemical treatment, they’re naturally smoother and rounder with nothing to irritate the skin. This gentle treatment also allows the fabric to maintain antibacterial benefits which means bamboo resists harmful and odour-causing bacteria. In nutshell, bamboo sheets are gentle on skin, feel and smell fresher for longer and are more forgiving for those who don’t get to wash their sheets as regularly as they’d like.
Bamboo bed covers are great for all seasons.
While the bamboo plant has a tough exterior, the inner fibre (the part we use for our sheets) is naturally spongy, making it highly absorbent and breathable. This means bamboo sheets are perfect for year-round use, keeping you cool and sweat-free in summer and nice and toasty in winter. Think of them as excellent insulation for your bed.
Bamboo fibres are durable
Despite being incredibly soft, bamboo is a strong fibre that lasts the test of time. Studies have shown it’s both stronger and more resistant to elongation than cotton, meaning not only will bamboo sheets last longer but also better hold their shape. In short, you can be sure your sheets will look just as good and fit your bed just as well on their hundredth use as they did on their first.
So, can you see why we love bamboo sheets? In addition to all the practicalities they offer – comfort, year-round use, durability and an attractive price point - they’re also great for the environment, something which is becoming increasingly important with every passing year. Next time you buy a sheet set, make it bamboo: we promise you won’t regret it.
