The Pros and Cons of Bamboo Bed Sheets

By Cody Wirth | Sep 28, 2017

Bamboo bedding, including sheets, comforters, pillows, and duvet covers, have become increasingly popular within the past few years. However, bamboo fabric is relatively new to the general population, so many people don’t know what the pros and cons are to bedding made of viscose from bamboo. To help you make an informed decision the next time you need to buy new bedding, we’ve compiled a list of the pros and cons of bamboo bedding. 

Pros

Comfort – When you’re looking for new bedding, you’re #1 concern is how comfortable it is. Bamboo bedding has a phenomenal advantage over other types of bedding when it comes to comfort. Bedding made of viscose from bamboo is extremely soft and silky, much more so than traditional cotton. Since it is more breathable, bed sheets made of viscose from bamboo won’t trap excess heat under the covers with you meaning you’ll always stay cool and comfortable no matter what season it is.

Healthy –  Bamboo fabric can reduce allergies because they reduce the amount of moisture in your bed which discourages one of the primary triggers of allergies, dust mites, for breeding in your bed.

These advantages are fantastic if you have children since they can be more sensitive to allergies and bacteria than adults. Cozy Earth now carries crib sheets and twin size sheets for kids!

Durable – Bamboo as a fabric is more durable than traditional cotton. Bamboo bed sheets, like those made by Cozy Earth, are made from viscose from bamboo that is stretched across the entire length of the sheet. Since long fibers are stretched the entire length of the sheet, rather than short fibers being interwoven together, bamboo bed sheets are less likely to tear and pill than traditional cotton sheets.

Bamboo is also unabsorbent, which means it won’t absorb the oils from your skin. This also means they won’t yellow and gray over time like traditional bed sheets and they will look brand-new for years to come.

Cons

Expensive – The one complaint about bamboo bedding is that it is expensive. While it’s true that the initial cost is higher, the value that you get from your bamboo bed sheets will last for years which means they won’t have to be replaced as often as traditional cotton sheets. When you don’t have to constantly replace your sheets, you actually save more money over time.
