Shopping: Bamboo Sheets and Bedding for your Home

Updated on March 1, 2011

Bamboo sheets and bedding are a beautiful option to cotton or synthetic bedding. They feel like silk to the touch and will keep you warmer in the winter (between 3-5 degrees) and cooler in the summer( again, between 3-5 degrees). They whisk the moisture away from your body and are naturally resistant to odors. Bamboo is hypoallergenic, and you can rest assured that bamboo sheets were not soaked in any dangerous chemicals that could come in contact with your skin while you rest at night.

Bamboo is the quickest growing plant in the world and offers a completely environmentally sound fabric. It's biodegradable as well, but you won't want to part with your soft, comfortable bamboo sheets any time soon.

If you are looking to turn your bedroom into an eco-friendly haven for you or your children, bamboo sheets and bedding is the way to go! Due to it's growing popularity, bamboo products are now readily available at many national retailers at a price that is completely comparable to cotton.

Shopping for Bamboo Sheets and Bedding

When shopping for bamboo sheets and bedding, there are a few things to look out for before making the purchase. Be sure to check the labels. Some sheet sets may be a blend of bamboo fibers with Egyptian cotton. If the cotton is not organic, the sheets are not completely "eco-friendly." Additionally, sheets with a blend of fibers may not give you the full advantages of 100% bamboo sheets.

The Benefits of Bamboo Sheets:

  • Durability: bamboo will maintain it's quality and softness longer than sythetics.
  • Bamboo has natural antibacterial properties. This will prevent the growth of mildew, even in an extremely humid environment.
  • Short drying time: Bamboo dries quickly which helps prevent the accumulation of odors.
  • Bamboo sheets are soft enough for people with sensitive skin.
  • Bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic.
  • Washes well in cold water, saving energy.
  • Organically grown: no pesticides or fertilizers are need to grow bamboo.
  • A breathable fiber that is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  • Competitively priced. Bamboo sheets and bedding will cost a similar amount as good quality cotton sheets.

Deciding to use bamboo sheets in your home will be great for the environment and the health of your family. They do not require any special care and you will love the luxurious softness!

The following video will give you a closer look at eco-friendly bamboo bedding and sheets.

      Bamboo socks were my introduction to bamboo also! I loved them so much, I went looking for other items made from it. Bamboo sheets, towels and clothing are wonderful. They make terrific running pants and t-shirts too. Be on the lookout!

      Bamboo really is terrific! Bambbo sheets would work wonderfully in high humidity and not get that musty smell. I hope you get to try some out! Thanks for reading. :)

      This sounds TERRIFIC! Had no idea sheets were being made of bamboo. I like the fact of not only it being eco-friendly, but also the cooling factor (since we live in Houston where heat and humidity reign most of the year). Thanks for this informative hub.
