EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BAMBOO BEDDING
Although high thread-count Egyptian cotton is by many considered the ultimate in luxury bedding, bamboo bedding is just as plush. In addition, it is a much more affordable, durable and easy-to-care for option.
‘When bamboo is woven for a textile it takes on a soft, luxurious feel – often compared to cashmere,’ says Stacey Kastrounis, Buying Director at The Home.
According to Stacey, the best bed sheets are made from natural fibres because they allow breathability, let air circulate and draw moisture away from the skin.
‘Bamboo sheets are thermo-regulating, which means they adjust to your body temperature. They will keep you cool in summer because they are highly absorbent, and keep you warm in winter – so you can use bamboo sheets no matter the season,’ she says.

Not only do bamboo sheets help you get an easy night’s sleep, research suggests they retain some of the original bamboo plant’s anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties making them great for your health, too. ‘Bamboo sheets are also hypoallergenic, so they are perfect for people with allergies and sensitive skin,’ adds Stacey.
Compared to many other sheets with the same luxurious feel, bamboo sheets are easy to care for, and can be machine washed in a cold wash cycle. ‘In other words, you’re doing your beauty sleep a favour by sleeping in bamboo sheets in more than ways than one! Says Stacey.
