8 Best Bamboo Sheets to Keep You Cool

Couple in bed; bamboo sheets

Let’s talk about sheets.

Cotton was king for far too long. Before we dive into the best bamboo sheets I want to break down why we need the cotton monarchy to move over.

In my research, I have noticed a roadblock in the mindset towards alternative bedding- thread count. The outdated thought process that the count is directly related to quality needs to be challenged.

Cotton is one of the most pesticide-dependent crops in the world. The fabric so woven into our lives needs to be rethought.

Moreover, cotton production relies heavily on freshwater.

Cotton leaves a larger carbon footprint than most other crops!

By researching this further, I have come to reevaluate what I am wearing and what I am sleeping in.

Now let’s look at bamboo fiber. Bamboo grows so fast and without the help from pesticides.

It grows so fast that my boyfriend once spent a class period in school where the whole class sat outside and watched it grow.

Bamboo is physically and emotionally tough. It doesn't need our help to grow. Talk about a role model!

    Best Blended Bamboo Sheets

    Are you convinced yet that bamboo gives the softest and best quality sheets? If you are still sitting on the fence, feel free to keep your seat right there and consider a blend.

    At 60% microfiber and 40% rayon from bamboo, this Marquette Boza sheet set is soft on your skin and on your wallet.

    Keep in mind, when shopping for bamboo the thread count is generally irrelevant.

    In a blend, however, you can let yourself get excited about a four-digit number.

    At a 1,800 thread count, you can both say you have tried something new and brag to your friends about your mighty high thread count!

    See the Marquette Boza Rayon from Bamboo Luxury 1800 Thread Count Rayon Sheet Set for yourself on the Wayfair product page.

    Best Bamboo Sheet Set

    I am a pillow person.

    With age, I have found myself needing pillows in more places on my bed. One under the left leg. One to the right. One on the floor just in case. You get the gist.

    Best Bamboo Sheets Under $101

    Okay so by now you may have noticed the general price point for bamboo sheets. Yes, they are certainly up there, and yes they are worth it.

    Not ready to go for a full set just yet? I recommend starting with the most important sheet: the fitted sheet. Ettitude sells their signature sateen fitted sheet for $100.

    On top of being cooling and silky smooth, it is blended with charcoal-infused polyester. Made with 70% organic bamboo lyocell, these sheets are as soft on you as they are on the environment.

    Best Cooling Bamboo Sheets

    My favorite part of bamboo sheets is how cool they are, literally.

    Why are bamboo sheets so cool?

    Viscose from bamboo provides a lighter weave in the fabric which gives better airflow and breathability to the material.

    Now let's talk about the silky sheets that are the coolest of them all. Introducing Layla Bamboo Sheets.

    At an average of three degrees cooler than cotton sheets, this is a godsend for those of us who are hot sleepers.

    With hundreds of reviews specifically speaking to how cooling these sheets are to back this up, there is no doubt that these are the go-to for those of us looking for temperature control.

    Not only does Layla offer a 5-year warranty, these sheets help extend the life of your relationship. We can finally cuddle again without complaining about our partner’s night sweat!

    To take it down three degrees, see the Layla Bamboo Sheets product page.

    Available in sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Split King, and California King.

    Most Durable Bamboo Sheets

    Viscose from bamboo is built to last.

    The fibers are naturally longer, making for a more durable material that is less likely to rip or tear.

    Cotton sheets typically have shorter fibers stitched together, making for a weaker fabric.

    Bamboo sheets are soft, cooling, and eco-friendly. If you are looking for all of these qualities plus a sheet set that is built to last, I recommend sheets by Hotel Sheets Direct.

    These sheets are 100% organic and 100% viscose from bamboo so you know you are getting a material that is able to deliver all of the benefits of the sturdy bamboo plant.

    To make for more of a hotel feel, the pillowcase in the set features a unique pillow pocket feature. This pocket tucks the pillow in the pillowcase so it is not exposed.

    For a sheet set to last you for years, see the Hotel Sheets Direct product page.

    Available in sizes: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, Split King, and California King.
