Cariloha Classic

Irresistibly Soft

Cariloha Classic Bamboo Sheets are everything that makes bamboo sheets better compared to standard sheets and basically shows why these companies are using bamboo in the first place.

Before anything else, these sheets are smooth and soft. In fact, they're twice as soft as cotton sheets, which is pretty ridiculous considering that cotton is considered to be among the softest materials/fabrics out there.

Nevertheless, the 100% viscose made from bamboo is so cushy and silky that it is able to make the fabric irresistibly soft and about as luxurious as these sheets get.

From the sheen perspective, these sheets are lustrous and even somewhat glossy, which is something that most customers should find more appealing than standard moderate sheets.

Of course, soft sheets are not always necessarily comfortable sheets. But these are about as comfortable as bed sheets get. The fabric is naturally breathable, so you'll be feeling snug yet fresh. At the same time, its moisture-wicking properties are excellent, making the sheets somewhere around three degrees cooler compared to cotton sheets. In other words, you'll remain comfortable season after season.

Review of Cariloha Classic Bamboo Bed Sheet Set

Not too Fragile

You don't want especially fragile sheets, that's understandable. These are anything but fragile. The twill weave construction makes these things tough and firm, resistant to tearing, stretching, and shrinking.

The one over, four-under weave makes the threads strong and durable, so you'll be able to wash these sheets as many times as you want without worrying about its properties across the board.

Made from bamboo, these sheets work wonders repelling odors and allergens. Generally speaking, bamboo viscose is able to prevent those skin irritations that come from standard, chemically-treated fabrics.

Now, we've been talking about these sheets but we haven't even mentioned what are the sheets that come with the package. What you get is one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, and two pillowcases. More often than not, that's the standard package. These are queen-sized sheets but you can purchase anything from Twin to California King.

You might not be able to choose between that many colors though since, right now, these sheets are available in six colors only. Also, the tape sheets are darker than advertised, so take that into account too.

Bottom line, what we have here are some of the best bamboo sheets on the market today from just about all perspectives.

MALOUF MA25KKASBS

Subtle and Understated Touch

MALOUF MA25KKASBS sheets are not glossy, something that separates them from most sheets and something that we tend to appreciate. More often than not, these lustrous, glossy fabrics are unable to maintain the shine, ending up looking dull and washed out.

The people behind this product were able to solve the issue by providing these sheets with this somewhat moderate sheen from the get-go. This way, the sheets still look pretty elegant but, before anything else, subtle and mature, with this understated yet charming aesthetic.

At the same time, these bamboo sheets are as soft as most viscose bamboo/rayon bamboo sheets. One might even say that these things are so luxuriously comfortable that you wouldn't able to resist slipping into bed. The sheets are smooth and pleasant to the touch too, offering that clean feel that only high-end bedding items and accessories are able to match.

Generally speaking, there are two reasons people purchase bamboo sheets: they're eco-conscious and/or they're allergic to various elements.

These are excellent reasons to purchase bamboo bed sheets in general and these sheets in particular. The sheets we're viewing here are about as hypoallergenic and naturally resistant to odors as bed sheets get, so you won't be coughing and sneezing from these things. Meanwhile, the sheets' soft, silky-smooth nature will be able to attract and satisfy customers with sensitive skin.

Review of MALOUF MA25KKASBS 100% Rayon from Bamboo

Vibrant yet Quiet Colors

These sheets are also great at wicking moisture away from the body, making you feel comfortable and cool even when it should be pretty hot underneath these things.

There are not too many downsides to these sheets that we can think of. Sure, there are only seven colors available but these colors are great, rich and vibrant yet subtle and quiet. You can choose between citron, ash, driftwood, ivory, rain, white, and gray. The sheets are somewhat prone to wrinkling and these wrinkles are more visible than they sometimes are on bamboo sheets but that's subjective and difficult to measure.

There are upsides too, upsides that are unique to this product. First, the sheets are fully elasticized. The ultra-thick, full-length elastic ensures this secure yet smooth fit onto mattresses as deep as 22 inches. The fitted sheet is especially easy to put on. You won't have to worry about this sheet slipping off.

Long story short, MALOUF MA25KKASBS will be able to attract mature customers looking for the safest, most comfortable sheets.

Hotel Sheets Direct Dark Gray

Soft Tactile Impression

Hotel Sheets Direct Bamboo Sheets are affordable first and foremost, which is not something that we can say about most half-decent sheets. You receive one fitted sheet, one flat sheet, and two pillowcases for less than 50 bucks.

That's nothing to scoff at provided that the sheets are good and these sheets are good. They're so soft and lightweight that there's very little chance you'll be willing to go back to traditional bed sheets.

At the same time, these sheets are smooth, offering the nicest, softest tactile impression (translation - they're pleasant to the touch). One might even go as far as to say that these sheets are as smooth as silk ones, which is pretty awesome considering that, like all bamboo sheets, these are not even remotely as delicate as silk.

You can easily and comfortably wash them using most washing machines, although we would recommend sticking to delicate wash cycles, setting the tumble dry as low as possible, and avoid bleaching them. Of course, these requirements are pretty standard as far as bed sheets are concerned.

There are not too many downsides that you'd imagine would derive from this price bracket. There's this slight, somewhat chemical smell to the sheets initially but the smell completely goes away the first time you wash them.

Review of Hotel Sheets Direct Dark Gray 100% Bamboo Cooling Sheets

Stay Cool

More often than not, bamboo sheets are breathable, more breathable than most sheets anyway. These are thermo-regulating too, meaning that the sheets are able to remain pretty cool when it is hot inside the room and quite warm when it is cool. That's somewhat similar to silk sheets except that bamboo sheets usually remain somewhere around 4-5 cooler compared to silk/cotton sheets.

At the same time, these sheets work wonders absorbing and dissipating sweat, making sure that it is able to evaporate, letting you sweat less and sleep better.

Besides the aforementioned advantages, the sheets that we're talking about here are anti-pilling and elastic all around, so you won't have to worry about them slipping and sliding, making you uncomfortable come nighttime.

From the variety standpoint, you can choose whatever sheets you want. The available sizes range from Twin to Split King, so you'll be able to make sure these sheets fit. There are 16 colors to select from, including vibrant tones like burgundy and bright green to subtle shades like light pink and peach puree.

All things considered, Hotel Sheets Direct Bamboo Sheets provide excellent value relative to the price.

Royal Hotel Sea

All the Colors and Sizes

Royal Hotel King Sea Bamboo Bed Sheets make sense, that's how we would describe and categorize these sheets first and foremost. The price makes sense relative to the sheets' quality and what these sheets are able to offer makes sense when compared to most bamboo sheets within this price bracket.

Before anything else, you'll be able to select the sheets you want and need. The standard set packs two pillowcases, one flat sheet, and one fitted sheet. That being said, you can also select between king-sized pillowcases and standard pillowcases, which is not the choice that these sets usually give you, so that's nice.

As far as sheet sizes are concerned, you can choose whatever you want here. There are Split California Kings, Split Kings, Top-Split-Kings, and Olympic Queens available, in addition to standard sizes like Twin, Queen, King, etc.

On the color selection front, there's not much to complain about here since the selection is wide and diverse enough. Taupe, Sage, Gray, White, Ivory, Sea, Gold, Blue, Royal Blue, even Red is available. We would recommend looking into Coral if you want something interesting or into Linen-Beige if you'd rather stick with something gentle and elegant. Teal and Periwinkle are interesting choices too, not too gaudy yet not as subtle and understated as most traditional bed sheet shades.

The colors might fade when you wash the sheets too often though, so try to avoid doing that because the colors sell this product as much as its composition/construction.

Review of Royal Hotel Sea 100% Bamboo Viscose Sheet Set

Elasticized Corners

Needless to say, the admittedly wide and diverse selection would be irrelevant if the sheets weren't good to begin with. Fortunately, that's not the case. These sheets are as good as any bamboo sheets we've looked at/into.

Before anything else, they're soft. To be more precise, they're as soft as silk and cashmere sheets but not as fragile as these fabrics are.

You can machine wash them, though we would recommend using cold water (that somewhat goes without saying with most bedding items though). Choose the machine's take on the standard delicate cycle and add some mild detergent. The low-heat cycle should be the right drying choice.

Equipped with elasticized corners, these sheets won't be slipping and sliding, so you won't be forced to adjust them every time to remain comfortable.

To sum everything up, Royal Hotel King Sea Bamboo Bed Sheets will let you decide and dictate the entire sleeping experience.

LuxClub Deep Pockets

43 Different Shades

Generally speaking, beds these days are standardized. That being said, there's still some variation between them, enough to break down and put them into different categories.

Because that's the case, sometimes it can be somewhat difficult to find the right sheets. There's nothing difficult about LuxClub Bamboo Sheets though.

First things first, these sheets are available in seven different sizes, including Twin, Twin Xl, Full, Queen, King, California King, and Split King. In other words, you'll have no issues selecting the best sheets for your bed. From the practicality perspective, that's the most important part.

We wouldn't recommend sacrificing aesthetics though. More often than not, sheets determine the bedroom's vibe/presence as much as furniture and various decorative items. As far as we're concerned, that's where the product's biggest strength lies.

You're able to choose between 43 colors here, which is pretty insane since the companies behind bamboo sheets seldom manufacture/produce more than 10-15 different shades and even then these shades are often not that different. As you'd imagine, that's not the case with LuxClub sheets.

Between those 43 shades, you'll definitely find the one that flows, matches, blends, and adapts with/to the bedroom's setting. You have standard shades like white, gray, black, navy, and so on. You also have rare shades like emerald, tree bark, salmon pink, sandstone, light plum, the list goes on and on.

Review of LuxClub Deep Pockets Silky Soft Sheet Set

Two Extra Pillowcases

The product sells also because its price is quite modest. Less than 80 bucks and these people will send you one flat sheet, one fitted sheet, and four pillowcases, which is pretty amazing considering that most bamboo sheet sets cost much more and pack no more than two pillowcases.

Sure, there are downsides to the product too. But, as far as we're concerned, the only one worth noting is that the sheets are relatively thin, meaning that they're probably not as resilient as most bamboo sheets but still more resilient than silk, cashmere, and cotton sheets.

Somewhat offsetting the sheets' thin composition are these deep pockets that make both standard and deep mattresses fitting enough.

Also, the sheets incorporate strong elastic all around the fabric, so you won't have to worry about them sliding across the mattress.

Last but not least, the upkeep/maintenance suggestions are pretty standard: go with the delicate wash cycle, low tumble dry, avoid bleaching them. Follow these guidelines and the sheets will not disappoint.

What Are Bamboo Sheets?

There are many different sheets available these days, from silk and cashmere to cotton and even flannel.

So, what separates bamboo sheets from them? Well, there are many things separating these sheets from generic sheets. We've discussed them in the What Features to Compare and Why Bamboo Though? sections, so we won't be talking at length here.

What we haven't discussed and even mentioned there though is arguably the sheets' biggest advantage - they are thermo-regulating. In other words, bamboo sheets remain warm when the room is pretty cold and surprisingly cool when the temperature gets uncomfortably hot.

More often than not, these sheets stay as warm as cashmere and cotton sheets when that's necessary but remain somewhere around five degrees cooler when the room is pretty hot. In other words, these sheets prioritize comfort before anything else.

Apart from that, bamboo sheets usually come equipped with deep pocket and elasticized corners so that you're able to make different mattresses and beds work.

Provided you haven't already, we would recommend looking into memory foam mattresses because these will change everything and that's not even an exaggeration.

What Features to Compare

Sizes

Bamboo sheets are still sheets, despite the differences compared to most sheets. That means that these things are supposed to fit. Of course, people make all kinds of beds these days, which means that the sheets are supposed to come in many different sizes too to fit those beds.

There are almost too many bed types to count these days, from the familiar Twin, Twin Xl, Full Queen, and King to California King, Split California King, Split King, Split Queen, Split Head California King, Split Head King, Split Head Queen, who knows how many more there are. Make sure that the sheets you're purchasing have been designed and measured against the bed type you're using.

Available Colors

There's not much to discuss here. More often than not, companies make/produce somewhere around 10-15 different shades. Sometimes though, you'll find sheets that let you select between as many as 40 different colors, which is nice since you'll more likely be able to find the shade that matches your taste and your setting's vibe.

Material(s)

Though technically we're reviewing bamboo sheets here, the term is more ambiguous than you'd think. More often than not, people use the term to refer to viscose or rayon fibers made from regenerated wood cellulose. Generally speaking, these fibers are interchangeable but we would recommend looking into the differences that are sometimes there between these materials.

Care/Upkeep/Maintenance

Bamboo sheets are easy to maintain. More often than not, you can throw them into any half-decent washing machine, select the machine's delicate wash cycle setting, and be done. You can tumble-dry them as long as you choose the low setting. Generally speaking, the companies behind these sheets recommend not to bleach them.

Extras

There are various different details that you can add to the "extras" category. Generally speaking, bamboo sheets are soft, lightweight, and pretty thick but, needless to say, different products show varying results on these fronts, so you'll have to read the reviews and figure these things out.

From time to time, companies will advertise the thread count, letting you know how strong the weave is and how durable the sheets are.

Setting the texture aside, there's also the fabric's sheen. More often than not, these sheets are not as glossy/lustrous as silk/cashmere sheets but sometimes they are, so pay attention to that too.

Why Bamboo Though?

It seems like people are making everything from bamboo these days, right? Of course, you have various furniture pieces, that somewhat goes without saying since people have been using different wood types to make furniture for centuries now. That's not everything though. Apart from furniture, there are bamboo clothes, bamboo toothbrushes, bamboo bath mats, the list goes on and on. People use bamboo to build roads, houses and schools, toys, utensils, musical instruments, even diapers and beer. Why bamboo though? Well, there are multiple reasons why that's the case and we've decided to discuss and review these reasons here.

Bamboo Is Cheap, Right?

That's right, even though you wouldn't think that because bamboo products seldom look or feel cheap, bamboo is actually quite cheap. More often than not, this wood type is readily available in those areas where it's cultivated. Transporting bamboo is cheaper and easier too when compared to most materials.

Then Why Is It so Cheap?

Well, first and foremost, bamboo grows stupid-fast. Sometimes, bamboo trees are able to grow as high as 100 inches within 24 hours.

Apart from that, bamboo presents very little challenges as far as turning the wood into a building material. It is easy to cut and easy to handle. You'll usually face no reposition and maintenance challenges. Also, you won't need sophisticated equipment to handle bamboo.

Alright, Where the Eco Part Comes Into Play Then?

Hold your horses, we're getting there. First, since bamboo grows so fast (as we've established above), you're able to milk the same areas without having to chop down new trees and move into the forest's heart. Also, bamboo trees are made from organic/natural vegetation. The plant is up there with the most renewable resources (again, thanks to its ability to completely mature within 3-5 years). That's insane compared to most hardwoods since those usually take as many as 20 years to grow into maturity.

That's Not Enough to Justify Its Environmentally Friendly Reputation Though

Sure. Apart from that though, bamboo adds nothing to the pollution issue because this plant doesn't have crusts or those parts that are considered waste. The bamboo parts that are not used will be recycled back into the ground as fertilizer or get processed as bamboo charcoal.

Is It as Reliable and Dependable as Most Hardwoods?

Bamboo is even more reliable and dependable than most hardwood types. Bamboo fibers are ridiculously strong, which is why people use these trees to build entire schools. You can create temporary and permanent constructions with ease. At the same time, the trees' circular shape and hollow sections make bamboo more lightweight than most materials.

Anything Else?

Yes. Last but not least, bamboo is comfortable and convenient. Its surface is clean and smooth and the shade looks nice from the get-go, so you aren't forced to scrape, paint, and polish whatever you've constructed using bamboo. Also, despite its strength, bamboo is flexible and bendable, so you don't have to worry about rupturing.
