Cotton sheets are a breeding ground for dust mites, which can cause allergies to flare up. Enter bamboo sheets, which are hypoallergenic, antibacterial and incredibly soft and cooling. Not to mention, bamboo is more sustainable and durable than cotton! Ready to sleep like you’ve never slept before? Let’s jump in.

Organic bamboo is hypoallergenic and antibacterial, and it decreases the amount of moisture in your bed, keeping pesky dust mites away. This makes them especially beneficial for people with sensitive skin.

Viscose and microfiber let your skin breathe at night.

Bamboo sheets are naturally more breathable than even high-thread-count Egyptian cotton. They don’t absorb sweat and cling to your body, so hot sleepers can comfortably get some shut-eye in them. They’re also thermal regulating, which is helpful for those who run cold or live in a cooler climate.

Viscose fabric stays odor-free for longer.

Bamboo bedding is less susceptible to long-term wear and tear because their long fibers extend across the entire length of the sheet, instead of being interwoven together like cotton. Meanwhile, the unabsorbent material protects sheets from the oils of your skin, which tend to turn cotton bedding yellow over time. You may pay more for bamboo sheets, but you’ll also keep them longer.
