If you have sensitive skin, are a hot sleeper, struggle with allergies, or you’re simply sleeping on uncomfortable sheets, then your sleep problems could end with a fresh set of silky smooth bamboo bed sheets.

You may have heard the recent buzz around bamboo sheets (and comforters, towels, and basically bamboo everything). They’re soft, durable, breathable, and more sustainable. But what exactly are bamboo sheets? And do they really make you sleep better? Bamboo is new to many, so we’re here to answer your questions and help you understand why our customers can’t stop talking about their bamboo bedding!

For many, cotton bedding is the go-to, and you may be wondering, “What exactly are bamboo sheets?” Don’t worry we’ll explain everything.

Why choose bamboo sheets? 

Bamboo sheets are known for their softness, durability, and the fact that they are eco-friendly. Hence the name they are made from the fibers of the bamboo plant. Bamboo sheets are well known for being eco-friendly. Bamboo trees are fast-growing, don’t require pesticides or excessive irrigation, and absorb carbon emissions from the atmosphere. For many reasons, they are the more sustainable option. In addition, bamboo sheets are more durable, which means more long-lasting - which is also great for the environment! Bamboo sheets are also a great option for those looking to reduce their exposure to toxins and chemicals. Some fabrics used in bedding are made from materials heavily treated with harsh chemicals. Fabrics made from natural sources, such as bamboo, are free from chemicals and toxins. Bamboo sheets are soft and safe enough that the whole family can enjoy them.

Bamboo sheets and your sleep. 

If you find yourself tossing and turning, awake in the middle of the night, or dragging through your workday, it may be time to switch your sheets. It seems like we’re all trying to get more sleep and better sleep. If you’ve tried all the tricks in the book - avoid caffeine, stay off screens, try this supplement, etc. Bamboo sheets may be your answer. We all need sleep to function and feel our best, so let’s talk about why bamboo sheets can help you sleep better.

Superior Breathability

Bamboo sheets make for a better night’s sleep because they prevent you from overheating. If you wake up, hot, sweaty, and uncomfortable, you may be overheating in your sheets, leading to poor sleep. Without waking up in the middle of the night to toss the covers off, you’ll have a more restful, deeper sleep. Allowing you to wake up feeling rested and refreshed!

When you sleep with traditional cotton bedding, your body heats become trapped. This is why you may wake up warm and uncomfortable. Bamboo, on the other hand, is a breathable fabric that efficiently vents excess heat and moisture, keeping you comfortable, cool, and most importantly - rested!

Incredible Softness 

We’re all looking for softer, more comfortable sheets, right?. There’s no question you sleep better on soft, cozy sheets! The softness of bamboo sheets far surpasses its competitors.

Generally, choosing a higher thread count means softer sheets. It also means your sheets are more likely to pill and tend to rip easier. When you’re shopping for bamboo sheets, it’s a different story. Bamboo sheets are made with a lower thread count. They utilize long fibers that stretch the entire length of the sheet rather than short fibers that create a higher thread count. This means bamboo sheets are less likely to tear or pill over time for more durability. It also means they’re more breathable and cleaner - more on this later. Although they’re made with a lower thread count, bamboo is softer than cotton because of the nature of the material. Not only is bamboo initially soft, but it also gets softer and softer with every wash.


Many people struggle with allergies caused by fabrics or the chemicals from which they are made. Bamboo sheets are naturally hypoallergenic, making them a great choice for those with allergies, asthma, or skin concerns. No one can get a good night’s rest when they’re fighting the sniffles, right? SleepBamboo takes it a step further, using low-impact vegetable pigment-based dyes and natural processes to finish the fabric. When you choose SleepBamboo, you can rest assured you’re choosing the best option for your health.

Antibacterial so sheets stay fresher

Bamboo sheets have the ability to fight off the microbes and bacteria that normally build up on your bedding. Why is microbial growth happening on your bedding? That’s because microbial growth is most likely to occur in places that are high in moisture and temperature. If you’re wrapped in your sheets, warm and sweating, you’re creating an ideal environment for bacteria to grow.

Bamboo is breathable and moisture-wicking, unlike its cotton counterpart. With bamboo, you’re creating a cooler, cleaner, and dry environment, free from unwanted bacteria.
