Your Most Asked Questions About Bamboo Bedlinen Answered

by Lisa Levi August 16, 2023

 

WHAT ARE BAMBOO SHEETS MADE FROM?

Bamboo sheets are made from Bamboo fibres through a process that involves crushing the plant into a pulp, which is then converted into fibres. These fibres are then spun into yarn and woven into fabric. The resulting fabric is what's used to make Bamboo sheets. Read about the Pure Zone Bamboo bedlinen manufacturing process here

 

ARE BAMBOO SHEETS REALLY SOFTER THAN OTHER TYPES OF SHEETS? 

Yes! Bamboo sheets are exceptionally soft due to the unique properties of Bamboo fibres. The fibres are naturally smooth and round, creating a surface that feels incredibly luxurious against the skin. Bamboo sheets are made using a process that involves crushing the Bamboo plant into a pulp, which is then converted into fibres. The resulting fabric is not only soft but also has moisture-wicking properties, contributing to a comfortable and cosy sleep experience.

 

IS BAMBOO RECOMMENDED FOR ALLERGY AND ECZEMA SUFFERERS / PEOPLE WITH SKIN SENSITIVITIES?

Yes, Bamboo sheets are often recommended for allergy and eczema sufferers, as well as people with skin sensitivities. While each person is different, in general Bamboo fibres are naturally hypoallergenic and antimicrobial and antibacterial and these properties are retained through the manufacturing process. These properties can help resist the growth of allergens, bacteria, and dust mites making Bamboo sheets a soothing choice for those with allergies or sensitive skin.

ARE BAMBOO SHEETS ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY? 

Yes! Bamboo is a fast-growing plant that requires minimal water and no pesticides, making it a sustainable resource. The environmental friendliness of Bamboo sheets can vary depending on factors such as the manufacturing process and certifications. Look for certifications like OEKO-TEX to ensure that the Bamboo sheets you're considering meet sustainability standards. 

WHAT DOES ‘OEKO TEX STANDARD 100 CERTIFICATION’ MEAN FOR BAMBOO SHEETS? 

The STANDARD 100 label signifies that the independent institute OEKO-Tex® has rigorously tested and granted its highest safety label to the product. This label, specialised in textiles (like Cotton, Bamboo, Linen) and Leather, isn't commonly seen as "Certified Organic." OEKO-Tex evaluates every aspect of the product's creation, including materials, threads, buttons, dyes, and more. This certification guarantees the product's components have been examined for harmful substances, and found to be 100% harmless to human health from raw materials to the final item.

DO PURE ZONE PRODUCTS CARRY THE ‘OEKO TEX STANDARD 100 CERTIFICATION’?

Yes, they sure do!

ARE YOUR BAMBOO SHEETS ORGANIC? 

Yes! Our Certified Organic Bamboo Sheet Sets have been made from Bamboo that grew according to organic standards. 

DO BAMBOO SHEETS REQUIRE SPECIAL CARE?

No! But like any all-natural fabric, a few considerations will definitely prolong their lifespan. We recommend washing on a cool, gentle cycle, using a mild detergent and staying away from bleach and fabric softeners. Line dry your sheets straight away after washing in the shade and away from direct sunlight. You can find more information about caring for your bedlinen to prolong their lifespan here

DOES BAMBOO FABRIC PILL?

Bamboo fabric has a reputation for being less prone to pilling compared to some other fabrics. The smooth and round fibres in Bamboo sheets contribute to this. While no fabric is completely immune to pilling, simple care and washing in accordance with our care guide can help minimise the chances of pilling occurring.

DO BAMBOO SHEETS WRINKLE?

Like many natural fibres, Bamboo sheets can wrinkle, but no more than any other type of sheet. Many love this natural look, but there are a few things you can do to minimise wrinkles if you prefer; hang immediately after washing, line dry in the shade stretched out to shape if possible and pop straight onto your bed. 

HOW LONG DO BAMBOO SHEETS LAST?

While the lifespan of Bamboo sheets will vary based on care and usage frequency, your Bamboo sheets will last many, many years. If you do feel like their life is coming to an end down the track, our 100% Bamboo Sheets are fully biodegradable. 

I HAVE A REALLY DEEP MATTRESS, WILL THESE BAMBOO SHEETS FIT?

Yes - we’ve got you covered! Pure Zone now offers our popular 100% Organic Bamboo Extra Deep Sheet Set (50cm Depth). Our Best Selling Bamboo Sheets are soft and silky, naturally breathable and beautiful to sleep in.

SHOULD I BE LOOKING AT HIGH THREAD COUNTS WHEN I LOOK AT BAMBOO SHEETS? 

While thread count is a consideration when choosing sheets, it's not the sole factor to focus on, especially with Bamboo sheets. Bamboo fibres are inherently softer and thinner than Cotton fibres, so a high thread count isn't necessary to achieve the same luxurious feel. Other factors like the quality of the Bamboo fibres, the manufacturing process, and any additional features (such as moisture-wicking or cooling properties) will also contribute to the overall quality of the sheets.

BAMBOO SHEETS SOUND LIKE THEY WOULD BE HARD, WHAT WILL THEY FEEL LIKE?

On the contrary! Bamboo sheets actually feel incredibly soft and smooth. The natural properties of Bamboo fibres create a luxurious texture that's closely compared to Silk. They have a silky smooth touch that makes jumping in between them an absolute dream! Bamboo sheets also have moisture-wicking properties which further enhance the overall comfort. 

DOES YOUR BAMBOO BEDLINEN COME IN PLASTIC PACKAGING?

No plastic to see here! At Pure Zone all of our Bamboo bedlinen comes in its own beautiful fabric pouch. These are also perfect for storing your bedlinen at home. 

WILL BAMBOO BEDLINEN BE TOO HOT FOR THE SUMMER MONTHS?

Bamboo bedlinen is known for its breathability and moisture-wicking properties, which makes it the perfect year-round bedding option. These qualities help regulate body temperature by allowing air to circulate and wicking away moisture, which leads to a cooler and more comfortable sleep during Summer, but also keep you cosy and warm during the cooler months.
