From the time we are born, to the time we die, sleep has rated very low on our most important activities, yet should be the highest.
Ensuring you have at least 8 hours of solid sleep a day is vital to your overall well-being. However, getting 8 hours of sleep a day, for most, is literally impossible.
And, so we try to find ways and means that will aid a little more zzz time into our lives. From lavender-sprayed pillows to mattresses that bend to our personal form and shape, we will try just about anything to be taken off to la-la land by the Sandman.
What we lie on can make a great difference to a good night’s sleep, and therefore we have taken the time to research the best bamboo sheets on the market.
When we think of bamboo, initially, we don’t think of bedding. We think of a substance that is hardy and of course, somewhat hard. Bamboo shelters, tropical islands, and workers in a field, chopping away. With durability and comfort in mind, bamboo sheets are the perfect bed partner. They are both soft and accommodating. We have our best bamboo sheets right here for you to choose from, noting a particular advantage of each.

What should you be taking into account when you go shopping for sheets?
We may think that when we are sleeping, we are pretty much oblivious to the world, that the type of sheeting we sleep on isn’t important, but try sleeping on an uncomfortable bed and you will know all about it, queue in the Princess and the Pea. There is something to be said for the feel of the sheet under your skin. Some like it super silky and smooth, others like it a little rough and real. Whatever your fancy, remove the sheet from the packaging whilst in the shop, if you are store-buying, and give it a rub against your arm and face.
Bamboo or sheets with a high thread count will feel very soft and silky, so if that is your thing, then be sure to try these out.
Whether you live in a hot environment or a very cold one, how your body will react to the sheet you lay on, will make a real difference to your sleep comfort. You may be someone that sweats quite a bit, no matter the season, either because of the life changes you are going through, illness, or natural high core temperature. Make sure your sheets can handle all extremes. If you are a cold person by nature, then you want a sheet that will retain the warmth of your body.
We are all looking for ways to protect our precious world, and using products that are environmentally-friendly is the way to do it. Many manufacturers will claim to be eco-friendly, but not many actually are. Bamboo is one such material that can boast this with confidence. Because bamboo doesn’t need any chemicals, you will find the products produced from this tree are chemical-free, as well as pesticide-free. The bamboo tree requires very little water and most of the tree is utilized in the making process.
Besides temperature, many are sensitive to allergies and insects. Knowing that your sheets are hypoallergenic and won’t aggravate your allergies, is a great plus. Bamboo, in particular, has this quality, and you can be assured the material will not create a sensitive reaction to any dust mites, bugs or chemicals.
Price is always a consideration, no matter what you are buying, but there are times when you have to look at spending a little more for a lifetime of comfort and peace. There is something to be said for quality, and quality can cost a bit more nowadays. Having said that, be aware of what you are buying, especially when it comes to bamboo sheets. There are various mixes, such as bamboo and microfiber, and bamboo and cotton. Know which you prefer and spend your money wisely for a sheet that will see you through for many years.
You will see that most of these options come in a set, so that it is not just the sheet under you where you will feel the joy, but also the flat sheet over you and the material under your head. Take a step further, and you can also purchase duvet covers to match your magic bamboo sheets. That way, you will have the best duvet cover and the best bamboo sheet, possibly throughout the entire house.
Bamboo sheets are special and once you have tried it you will not go back to other fabrics.
