Bamboo viscose bedding, including sheets, comforters, pillows, and duvet covers, have become increasingly popular within the past few years. However, bamboo viscose 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 viscose from bamboo bedding.

Comfort – When you’re looking for new bedding, your #1 concern is likely how comfortable it is. Viscose from 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. It is also more breathable, which means it won't trap excess heat under the covers with you; you’ll stay cool and comfortable no matter the season.

Healthy –  Bamboo viscose 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 viscose as a fabric is more durable than traditional cotton. Bamboo viscose 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, viscose from bamboo bed sheets are less likely to tear and pill than traditional cotton sheets.

Bamboo viscose 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.


Bamboo Viscose Bed Sheet Cons

Expensive – The one complaint about viscose from 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 viscose 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.
