Bamboo Bed Sheets

Bamboo bed sheets are increasingly popular alternatives to the traditional bedding fabrics. If you are looking to buy a set of bamboo bed sheets here is a few things you should consider when making your purchase.

Better than Cotton

Compared to Cotton, Bamboo is much more eco friendly and sustainable. Take care to select a Bamboo fabric that has been made from naturally cultivated Bamboo. Bamboo is more resistant to soiling than cotton and is naturally anti bacterial, anti static and highly dust mite resistant. It is ideal for those with sensitive skin and allergies.You should carefully consider the percentage of bamboo fabric in the bed sheets. You will find different compositions of bamboo, ranging from 100% bamboo down  to 40-60% bamboo/cotton mix. The cotton / bamboo mixes are more prone to shrinkage of up to 10%.

100% Bamboo Bed Linen is the answer

To enjoy all the benefits of bamboo bed sheets you should  buy 100% bamboo bed sheets. 100% Bamboo bed sheets are generally more expensive than the bamboo – cotton mixes but they are much softer . Pure 100% bamboo bedding controls your body temperature while you sleep keeping you warm in winter and cool on summer.

You should check out the thread count of the bed sheets. The best Bamboo Fabric has a 250 + thread count and the quality and softness compares to a  1000 thread count in Cotton.

Finally, you might want to think about the colour of your bed sheets. Generally only white is available but some specialist companies have a wider range of colours available . Click here to view.
