The popularity of natural fibre bamboo sheets has led to a growth in demand over the last few years. The fabric has many qualities, some of which outweigh those of other natural fibres, and has become a prized material by the linen industry.
As an environmentally friendly, natural, and breathable product with antimicrobial and antifungal properties, this is fastly becoming a favourite high quality material for bedding on the same scale as Egyptian cotton.
The plants do not require pesticides when growing as it has a natural pest-protecting bio-substance. This antifungal substance is also found in the resulting spun fibres and has been commercially tested with the resulting discovery that it eradicates bacteria at a high rate even after 50 washes.
These antibacterial qualities, along with its breathability, softness, and high absorption rate make it an excellent choice over cotton.
Bamboo sheets are also great for anyone suffering from night sweats through illness, fever, or hot flashes cause by the menopause in women.
Waking up in the night drenched in sweat and having to do the laundry over again and again is no fun!
