Discount the threadcount

Are you are tired of paying high prices for high thread-count cotton sheets, only to find them stiff and scratchy? We finally gave up and switched – to bamboo sheets.

What a difference! You can discount the thread-count at last; it simply is not relevant to luxury bamboo sheets. The nature of bamboo viscose fabrics is its incredible drape and soft touch. The softness and comfort only increase with each washing.

When luxury bamboo sheets first appeared on the market, the color choices were very limited. Price too was limited – as in very high. As more, and better manufacturers began offering bamboo sheets, so too the incredible variety in color, quality and price.

You can reasonably expect to pay just over $100 & up to $300 for a quality set of luxury bamboo sheets. Sure there are less expensive sets out there, but buyer, beware! Some things we found with inferior bamboo sheets were pilling, seams coming apart, irregular stitching & off-sizing. If it is comfort, quality and luxury you want, you are well advised to be leery of bargain basement sheets of any kind.

We love the great color palette offered by the better bamboo sheet makers today. Luxury bamboo sheets come in colors ranging from cayenne, and copper, to platinum, plum, and berry. If you favor lighter neutral colors, the varying shades of white, ivory, ecru, and champagne will be sure to please.

Bamboo – it’s what we’re sleeping on!
