Towels. Pillows. Headphones. Teeth whitening powders. It seems like bamboo is slowly but surely invading just about every product we use. Our bed sheets are no exception — and when it comes to the best bamboo sheets, all that hype is justified.
For starters, bamboo sheets are known to be softer and more breathable than your average cotton sheet. And, a study published in the Journal of Family Ecology and Consumer Sciences even found that bamboo sheets are more resistant to bacteria than cotton. Some people also swear that bamboo wicks moisture and ventilates way better than other fabrics, so if you're looking for sheets that help with night sweats, a new pair of bamboo bed sheets could be a game changer.
Personally, I switched to bamboo sheets about six months ago, and I've since been known to get into bed and roll around on my back like a cat — it feels that nice. But, if you've never bought bamboo sheets before, it can be hard to know what to get. Like any other sheet, there's pricey ones, bargain options, and everything in between. Each of these sets includes a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases, and people can't stop raving about how great they are.
1. Bamboo Sheets That Are As Low Maintenance As It Gets
These linen bamboo sheets are exceptionally durable and easy to care for. Because they're made from a bamboo and microfiber blend, they won't fade, wrinkle, or stain, and they're resistant to dust mites. They're also machine washable and go in the dryer to make laundry day a breeze.
2. 100 Percent Bamboo That's Like Cashmere Or Silk, 'But Better'
Because they're made from 100 percent bamboo, reviewers say these silky bamboo sheets "are silky soft without being slippery or hot like silk." They come in eight different sizes (so if you've got an olympic queen or split king, you're in luck), and you can even purchase just the pillowcases if you want to try them out.
3. Over 2,000 Reviewers Love These Zen Bamboo Sheets
More than 2,000 people (including me) are raving about these Zen Bamboo Luxury Bed Sheets. They're made from high quality brushed microfiber and bamboo, so they're hypoallergenic and eco-friendly. Best of all, they come in 12 gorgeous colors and are super easy to care for.
4. Pure Bamboo Sheets That Are 'The Best Sheets Money Can Buy'
People are flipping out over these Cariloha Resort Bamboo Sheets because of their quality. Made with 100 percent green bamboo, they have a box-stitch seam and sateen finish to make them the softest, most breathable, and most durable sheets reviewers have ever slept on: "These sheets are amazingly and fantastically soft and when wake up in the middle of the night it's almost nice as I get to enjoy them just a little bit more."
5. A Hypoallergenic Set That's Great For People With Allergies
Made with a blend of bamboo, polyester, and microfiber, these hypoallergenic bamboo sheets resist dust mites and pollen. As a result, they're great for those with allergies: "I have really bad allergies year round so I have to wash my sheets constantly or I will get hives," says one reviewer. "Now that I have tested them I will be buying a second set." They're also soft, breathable, and cooling.
6. These Natural-Fiber Sheets Made From A Blend Of Bamboo & Cotton
If you're a fan of the natural fabrics, but don't want to go fully bamboo, this deluxe soft hybrid set combines both bamboo and cotton for sheets that are soft, breathable, durable, and great for those with skin allergies. "You will love the feel of this bamboo blend against your skin," says one reviewer. They come in six different sizes and ten different colors.
7. Looking For Something Affordable? Try This Blend
They're moisture-wicking, super soft, and hypoallergenic, just like every other bamboo brand, but these bamboo sheets are extra affordable because they're made with a microfiber blend. They also come in an insanely extensive selection of colors (35, to be exact), and people say, "They have the slight plush-feel of jersey but are super breathable and don't stretch at all."
8. These Durable Sheets That Stand Up To Everyday Use
Because these Mandarin Home Luxury Sheets are durable and easy to care for, reviewers are commenting things like, "Very soft, not fragile feeling like other bamboo sheet sets I have tried. Love them!" They're made with a blend of bamboo and microfiber that's washable, won't fade, and won't wrinkle.
9. Sheets That Promise You'll Feel 3 Degrees Cooler All Night
If you often feel hot while you sleep, these bamboo sheets are an awesome investment. The viscose bamboo is way softer and more breathable than cotton, so it instantly wicks moisture to keep you feeling cooler while you sleep. They also come in six different sizes with extra deep pockets, and reviewers say, "I am a hot sleeper and often wake up drenched in sweat and these sheets keep me cool."
10. 300 Thread Count Bamboo That's The Definition Of Luxury
Not only do these luxury bamboo sheets use nothing but rayon from bamboo, but they're made with a 300 thread count, an elegant hem, and deep pockets. Reviewers say that the quality gives them an almost "silky" feel, and they get better and better with each wash.
