I recently purchased the best bamboo sheets for my king size bed!
Now I have to tell you, I am a bit of a sheet snob. My biggest pet peeve is when the sheets get nubbies on them or pill. But I am a mover at night, so I wear sheets out and then they create the nubbies that I hate. I found over the years that if I buy really good quality sheets I can avoid this.
When I heard about Bamboo sheets sets and read the reviews, I wasn’t convinced. They sounded too good to be true. But I wore yet another set of sheets out, so I decided to try Bamboo bed sheets this time.
You may not have heard of them either. I mean, when I think about them making sheets from a plant, I am a bit puzzled. But this article from Wikipedia about bamboo and how they make textiles from it really helped me understand what I would be buying.
I am so glad I did! The are the softest sheets I have ever slept on. They just drape over you so softly. I can’t really tell I have a sheet on. They feel like the premium bedding you find in the five star hotels!
I have had them a few months and have washed them several times according to the directions (cold water wash and low heat drying). They come out wrinkle free from the dryer and fit the bed nicely. They do seem to wrinkle at night from me moving around so much, but I just re-tuck the bottom sheet in morning and they are perfect again.
The Bamboo bedding set I bought have deep pockets so they fit the big mattresses they are selling now. Sometimes I find it hard to find pockets big enough for my mattress.
So after having them a few months I decided to share my personal experience with you.
I looked at the reviews for months before spending the money, but it was worth it. If you are a sheet snob like me and want soft, yet durable sheets, this may be the one for you.
These are pictures of my bed. As you can see there are a few wrinkles in the sheets, but after all, I have slept on them two nights. What do you expect? If they look soft, it is because they are. The are like butter. I love them!
When I read the reviews, some said they had trouble with them fraying. I think mine are too new for this to be showing up, but if they do, I will report back to you. I kept the packaging just in case I need to return them. I feel that if you spend over $100 on sheets they should last more than a year. Don’t you?
Here are few other Bamboo Sheet Sets that I looked at buying, but decided to go with the others. These are good as well. I tried to stay away from sets that were really inexpensive because I believe you get what you pay for. Read the reviews for yourself to decide which to Bamboo Sheet Set to purchase for your bed. I know you will love them!
UPDATE: It’s October 2014 Now
So I have had my bamboo sheets for 4 or 5 months now and I cam so happy with them. Every time I wash them, they come out perfect. Sleeping on them is a joy and I look forward to going to bed. I actually spend more time there now.
This was the perfect choice for me. Have you looked into them yet? You need to go check out the best bamboo sheet sets and see that I am correct when I say they are the best sheets ever.
