Hey if you are going to spend one third of your life asleep, why not sleep on luxury bedding! But beware, lying on these cozy bamboo-blended sheets you may not want to get out of bed.

But wait! Bamboo sheets aren’t just heavenly to sleep on. They are also environmentally conscious! Really they are! This should be an important factor in making any decision; bamboo sheets are made from one of the world’s fastest growing, greenest, most renewable resourceā€¦bamboo! Did you know that bamboo plants could grow up to a foot per day! There is really no worry about deforestation. Also another great factor: Bamboo can grow so thick and dense; a bamboo forest has around 40% more biomass than a regular hardwood forest. So that is 40% more carbon-reducing power!

As for pesticides and herbicides and other nasty chemicals, bamboo simply doesn’t need them. This makes bamboo a naturally organic product. Not like cotton. Even though cotton is a natural fiber, cotton production is an unnatural process that uses more pounds of chemicals per pound of cotton than any other crop!

Still need more? Well bamboo sheets are also the vegan/animal friendly choice for luxury. Not like cashmere or silk. This means you can sleep in peace knowing no animals were harmed for you to sleep on your luxurious bamboo sheet set.

The final conclusion when you go to sleep tonight why not pamper yourself in luxury? Lay down in the soft feel that only quality blended bamboo and Egyptian cotton bedding has. Go ahead you deserve it!

Bamboo sheets are not your normal 800 thread count bed sheets. Bamboo sheets are not only comfortable but they’re designed to be the most luxurious sheets for your bed as well as your guest bedroom. Bamboo sheets have a large amount of natural antibacterial resistance. In addition to the antibacterial qualities, they are also very antifungal. This antifungal property is a natural way for the bamboo forest to protect itself from bugs and other vermin that would consume the plants before they reached maturity.

In recent testing by the China Industrial Testing Center, it was discovered that bamboo sheets kill 98.8% of bacteria after 24 hours. These strange-but-true sheets are not only antibacterial and antifungal, they’re also renewable. Since they’re made from a 100% renewable resource, bamboo, you’re using an eco-friendly alternative to traditional cotton, nylon and rayon sheets. In addition the antifungal and antibacterial qualities and since bamboo is a natural repellent of pests and bugs, no pesticides are needed in the growth or cultivation of bamboo plants. This keeps them as natural and safe as possible.

People who sleep on bamboo sheets compare them to silk, but always not that the bamboo sheets are not as slippery as the silk sheets, but just as soft. Bamboo is a unique insulator as well. In the winter, they will insulate and keep you warm, and in the summer time they draw heat away from your body and keep you cool. Bamboo bed sheets are available in a wide variety of colors and thicknesses. You will definitely be able to find any combination of color, bed size and thickness. If you’re like me, you like a light color bed sheet that is very thin.

Bamboo is as thin as silk without the slipperiness of those silk bed sheets.

After reading the benefits of bamboo bedsheets, most people ask one question, “How much do they cost?”, and they expect bamboo sheets to be 4 to 5 times more expensive that regular cotton sheets. After looking at the actual price of bamboo and cotton, you’ll find they’re very close to the same. I did a price search for 600 thread count Queen cotton sheets and 600 thread count Queen bamboo sheets. The cotton ranged from $39-99 for a queen set of sheets including two pillow cases. The bamboo sheets ranged from $79-109 for the exact same setup including two pillow cases. If you generally buy the cheapest bedding you can find, the cotton is still going to be cheaper. If, however, you generally buy in the middle of the road, or towards the top end of sheets, bamboo will be almost the same in price when compared to cotton.

A single problem I’ve found is that bamboo sheets are hard to find in stores. I’ve looked at large retailers like Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, and Costco. None of them had any bamboo bed sheets in stock, but you can always find them online. After looking at enough reviews at different retailers, I knew that bamboo sheets were for me. Without discussing it with my wife, I ordered a set for us. When they came in, I put them on the bed and didn’t tell her. That night she laid down in the bed and said, “Something is wrong with our sheets!” I said, “What’s wrong?” My wife said, “These aren’t the same sheets I slept on last night, they’re softer and more comfortable!” If that’s not enough proof, give it your own test and see if your significant other can tell the difference!

Bamboo Bedding

If you have trouble sleeping, organic bamboo bedding might be what you are looking for. Many people are reluctant to switch up their traditional bedding for something different. Thinking that it doesn’t make a difference is a big mistake. Bamboo material is soft, naturally anti-bacterial, and breathable. Your bed should be the most relaxing place in your home. While choosing the right mattress is important, don’t underestimate the benefits of using high quality bedding.

There is a big difference between ordinary cotton sheets and organic bedding from bamboo. It brings you closer to nature and provides incredible comfort. Cotton can feel heavy and rough on your skin. Bedding from bamboo, on the other hand, is very light and feels more like silk. Its texture is much more pleasant to the touch than cotton.

You might picture tall and tough stalks when you think of Bamboo. However, bedding made from this exotic plant has very different properties. It is made out of viscose extracted from bamboo just like fibers are extracted from cotton. It is then turned into thread and refined into silky-smooth fabric. The finished product is very different from the plant it started out as.

The major advantage to using organic bedding is that it is so much softer than cotton. Many people compare it to Egyptian cotton sheets and some say that it is even softer. If you have sensitive skin that needs special care, having soft and silky sheets can make all the difference.

Bamboo sheets can absorb moisture much better than cotton. If you happen to sweat at night for any reason, they will keep your comfortable and dry without you waking up. Even on a really hot night, bamboo sheets will stay cool and dry.

Another benefit to using organic bamboo bedding is that it is naturally anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic. For one thing pesticides are never used on bamboo, so they never need to be removed in the production of bedding from bamboo. This is not the case with cotton, which often comes with a label that it is pesticide free. Organic bamboo material is as close to nature as you can get. Bamboo bedding retains its anti-bacterial properties through many washes. It can guard you against any unwelcome intruders such as bed mites. People with sensitive skin will feel much better using naturally anti-bacterial and hypoallergenic sheets. They are also great for babies that can be susceptible to bacteria and rashes.

There are many benefits to using organic bamboo material. Unlike cotton, no harmful ingredients are used in making it. It is very soft, silky, and light. Using bamboo bedding can ensure that you get restful sleep every night.
