Bamboo sheets and pillowcases have grown popular over the past few years, partly due to their eco-friendliness. However, when you’re looking for new bedding, your top concern is how comfortable it is. Fortunately, bamboo sheets and pillowcases have a phenomenal advantage over other types of bedding in this area. Bamboo linens are incredibly soft to the touch, even more so than cotton! Also, because bamboo bed sheets are highly breathable, they won’t trap excess heat under the covers with you. You’ll always stay cool and comfortable, no matter what season it is.
Bamboo linens are made from premium bamboo that is stretched across the entire length of the sheet. Since the fibers are long and intact, rather than short fibers interwoven together, bamboo bed sheets are less likely to tear and pill than traditional cotton sheets. Bamboo sheets and pillowcases are also healthier, because they’re naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. Bamboo is also non-absorbent, which means bamboo sheets and pillowcases won’t absorb the oils from your skin.

The advantages of bamboo linens are fantastic if you are sensitive to allergies and other respiratory diseases. Since bamboo linens won’t absorb the oils from your skin, they won’t discolor or break down over time, unlike traditional bed sheets. Your bamboo sheets and pillowcases will look brand-new for years to come!
This is a personal decision based on exactly how you like to sleep, but bamboo sheets can be as soft as high thread count cotton without as high a number. Bamboo fibers tend to be more durable and more comfortable.
Always wash your bamboo bedding in cold water on a gentle cycle. You'll want to use mild, liquid, biodegradable detergent. Put them in the dryer when they’re clean.
No one wants to get hot and sweaty as they sleep! Cotton retains heat more than bamboo. On the other hand, bamboo sheets are naturally breathable and wick away moisture.
Bamboo sheets and pillowcases are made from premium bamboo that is stretched across the entire length of the sheet. The woody part of the bamboo is crushed mechanically before a natural enzyme retting and washing process, which is done to break down the walls and extract the fiber. This fiber is then spun into thread, which is what goes into your bamboo sheets and pillowcases.
When cared for properly, bamboo sheets and pillowcases typically last 5 or even 6 years.
Slight pilling is normal for natural fibers, especially in response to friction, and isn't a fault or defect. Bamboo is a completely natural fabric, so you may notice slight pilling with initial use. This can be reduced or removed during the washing and drying process.
Bamboo is incredibly soft and has often been compared to cashmere and silk in feel. It also helps keep you cool, which means you won't sweat onto your pillowcase and potentially break out.
If bamboo pillowcases are used on a daily basis and washed once every few weeks, they should last about a year or two before requiring a replacement. Of course, how long it lasts is actually subject to how much oil, dirt, and stains it accumulates.
Yes! It is very soft, so your hair won't break and frizz when you move your head around at night. It's also very cool, so you won't get acne and blemishes from sweating.
Bamboo sheets do shrink in their first wash. However, top brands account for this by designing their sheets at 4% oversize, making for a perfect fit once washed.
No, they won't! Bamboo sheets release wrinkles easily and are also breathable and soft.
