I had been looking at getting myself some bamboo sheets for ages, so when Linenly reached out to see if I wanted to try a set I jumped at the chance. Best of all – there’s a set for one of you lovely folk as well! So, here’s my thoughts on their bamboo sheets!
Why bamboo sheets?
First things first, I thought I’d talk about why I was so keen to try bamboo sheets – there’s a few reasons! Due to it’s fast-growing nature, bamboo is a sustainable resource as it is easily replenished. It also grows without the need for pesticides or fertilisers, and doesn’t need much in the way of water either. It is high yielding as well – up to ten times more fabric than cotton – which is also an environmental plus. As a fabric it is super soft and silky in feel, and is breathable which is what makes them excellent for bedding. It’s safe to say I had high expectations!
My thoughts on the Linenly sheets
The lovely folk at Linenly sent me a set of their queen sized sheets and a quilt cover. I was very happy when I saw that they are made from 100% organic bamboo fibre and are Oeko-Tex certified. This means that they are made without harsh chemicals, and it’s a worldwide standard. All of this gave me lots of confidence in the quality of the sheets.
The bamboo sheets were as soft and silky as I had hoped, making them an absolute delight to sleep on. They were so smooth and comfortable, and I loved sliding in to them at the end of the day. They’re also really breathable which means I haven’t been waking up overheated, which is super important to me. Each time that I have washed them I have basically wanted to put them straight back on the bed – although a Melbourne winter makes that a little trickier!
There’s a couple of little features I particularly love – including the fact the fitted sheet tells you which is the long side! It sure does make putting them back on the bed that much easier. I also love the pillowcases that came with the set. I have no doubt their silkiness is cutting down breakages in my hair by removing any friction while I sleep.
It’s safe to say I am a massive fan of my Linenly bamboo sheets, and I will be adding more into my rotation soon, that’s for sure!
