One of the reasons bamboo is such a great choice for bedding is because it is naturally breathable and thermoregulating. The smooth, flat weave allows warm air to pass easily through the fabric, keeping you cool in summer while helping to insulate your body during the colder months.
Bamboo naturally wicks moisture and heat.
the small gaps and holes in bamboo fibres absorb moisture. They also allow hot air to escape. Compared to other fabrics used to make pillows or Mattresses, bamboo may be better at keeping a sleeper's head cool and dry.
Bamboo also wicks away moisture so you don’t wake up feeling hot and sweaty on warm nights.
Bamboo fabrics are soft and static-free.
Bamboo fibres are naturally anti-static and anti-cling. Woven into fabric, they also tend to be soft and lustrous, somewhat like silk.
Bamboo may be antibacterial and hypoallergenic.
There's some evidence that bamboo fibres naturally resist the growth of bacteria. This means they're less likely allow to grow microorganisms that could lead to illness or smelly odours. There is also some evidence that bamboo really is less likely to cause an allergic reaction compared to some other textiles. If you have sensitive skin or allergies, bamboo makes an ideal choice. The smooth surface won’t pull at your skin and bamboo’s naturally hypoallergenic properties means less irritation.
Bamboo is easy to care for.
Compared to cotton, bamboo materials are more wrinkle-resistant and less likely to shrink in the wash.
It also has a slight sheen that gives the fabric and fresh, crisp look. Bamboo feels deliciously cool when you first get into bed and envelops you in a kind of cloud-like softness.
The bamboo fibre itself has a smooth, round surface. This texture gives it a beautifully soft feel that drapes wonderfully and feels silk-like against the skin.
