Introducing: The World's Softest Sheets! August 05 2016, 0 Comments
Announcing bamboo sheets, made from 100% viscose from bamboo! You spend nearly eight hours a day sleeping. You might as well sleep in the world’s softest sheets.
Sourcing high quality, durable bamboo products is challenging. On our search for quality bamboo sheets, we encountered a barrage of manufacturers promising “better quality” sheets than the next guy. The reality we discovered was: quality bamboo sheets are hard to find. Many companies boast “high quality” bamboo sheets that are a blend of microfibers and bamboo instead of 100% viscose from bamboo.These blended sheets sell for less than those made entirely from viscose bamboo but are noticeably rougher to the touch, and lack the defining properties that make bamboo sheets so desirable. Blended sheets didn’t pass our comfort tests.
Here’s what makes bamboo sheets made from 100% viscose from bamboo so special:
- Moisture wicking: a not-so-fun fact is that humans can release up to a pound of sweat a night. Many people find that viscose from bamboo fibers actually whisk moisture from your skin, ensuring that you stay calm, comfortable, and clean while you rest.
- Ultimate Softness: viscose bamboo fibers are naturally long, unlike cotton, and don’t have to be “bunched” together when sewn to create sheets. The result is that even the lowest thread count bamboo sheets are far softer than the highest thread count cotton sheets. Having thoroughly examined numerous types of sheets, we can confidently say, sheets made from 100% viscose from bamboo are the world’s softest sheets (this isn't a marketing joke, they really are the softest sheets we've ever encountered).
Once we got our hands on 100% viscose from bamboo sheets and put these features to the test, we decided these were the only sheets worth offering our customers. Our sheet sets come in five elegant colors, fit double, queen, king, and california king beds, and include 1 fitted sheet, 1 flat sheet, and 2 pillowcases. We hope you’ll find them worth the price, and so fantastic that they change the way you think about bedding. Shop Bamboo Supply Co. sheets →
