3 Reasons Why Bamboo Sheets Are Today's Luxury Bedding

This is a guest submission from Jim Rosberg.

For some time now 100% Egyptian cotton sheets have been considered the king when it comes to comfort and softness in luxury bedding for the home. Those times may be coming to an end. Today you will notice that bamboo sheets and bamboo bedding are the new deal. How and why has this happened?



Well, bamboo sheets are as soft as silk because the bamboo fibers are naturally soft, smooth and round. This quality makes it hypoallergenic for the skin and does not cause rashes as other abrasive fabrics can. Bamboo is a natural material that is a derivative of an environmentally friendly bamboo plant. The bamboo plant is naturally hypoallergenic since its fibers do not cause allergic reactions. So if you are a victim of allergy, anyone who has developed a rash or itchy bedding, a good set of bamboo sheets may be perfect for you.

Luxury bamboo sheets have insulating qualities and bamboo is a very breathable fabric. The result is that these sheets are warm in winter and cool in summer. Bamboo bed sheets are extremely luxurious with the softness of silk and the soft feel of cashmere. You will also find some cotton blends and bamboo blends, but 100% bamboo feels different to the touch.

Bamboo sheets have a lot of natural antibacterial qualities as well as anti-fungal properties. This is incredible. Bamboo fiber is naturally resistant to mold and mildew and that quality is moved when bamboo is created in luxurious linens! Studies have shown that clothing made from 100% bamboo yarn kills 90% of bacteria within an hour. One of these tests was conducted by the China Industrial Testing Center. Their scientists tried to infect bamboo sheets with bacteria of the genus Staphylococcus aureus for 24 hours. Their study shows that after 24 hours of incubation 100% of bamboo sheets either have rejected or removed 99.8% of the bacteria. Even after 50 washes, bamboo sheets still had the ability to kill more than 80% of bacteria. Absolutely incredible.

Another thing that is fascinating about the bamboo sheets is that bamboo fabric is that it is 100% biodegradable. That makes the most eco-friendly fabric in the world. When you sleep on your bamboo sheets you can be sure that you are using an eco-friendly alternative to traditional cotton rayon and nylon linens. Along with the antifungal and anti-bacterial qualities already mentioned. Bamboo plants do not need unpleasant chemical pesticides and herbicides during cultivation. This makes bamboo a safe, natural organic product.

With all these qualities, it is not difficult to see why bamboo sheets quickly become the choice of today's luxurious bedding.
