If one of your New Year's resolutions was to get better sleep, it's time to upgrade your bed with a set of bamboo sheets. The soft material— made entirely from bamboo plants— is lightweight and breathable, making it an excellent option for hot sleepers. Instead of overheating, you'll stay cool, comfortable, and fast asleep all through the night.

Unlike cotton or linen, bamboo fibers can be processed in a number of different ways to create varied appearances and textures. Bamboo fabrics can be listed on care labels using fancy names like bamboo rayon and bamboo lyocell. While some fabrics are soft and matte, others are silky with a sateen finish.

For that reason, shopping for bamboo sheets can be a bit tricky. So to help you sleep comfortably throughout the coming year, we've rounded up the best bamboo sheets below. With something in every bed size, color, and finish, we've got all types of bamboo sheets to choose from!

What To Look For and how to choose Bamboo Sheets?

Material: Not all bamboo sheets are created equal. The most common bamboo sheets on the market are a blend, but the best options are made of 100 percent bamboo. If you want to make sure your bamboo sheets are made with sustainable practice, look for OEKO-TEX and GOTS certification.

Weave: The weave will affect how the bamboo sheet feels, and bamboo threads are usually woven in either twill or sateen. Sateen offers a more luxurious look and has a super soft silk-like feel and appearance. Twill bamboo sheets are a more durable option, and it has a crisper look and will hold up after multiple washes. This option is generally less expensive than sateen.

Thread Count: The typical thread count for bamboo sheets are between 250 and 350. While this may sound low compared to cotton, bamboo is naturally soft.

Types of Bamboo Textiles

Bamboo textiles can be made with mechanical or chemical processing methods. Here are a few types of bamboo textile differentiated by the method used to manufacture them:

Rayon: Rayon is a semi-synthetic textile that is designed to be an alternative to silk. By using a chemical process of dissolving the bamboo cellulose in solvents can be made with bamboo and other types of material. If you are on a budget, rayon from bamboo tends to be more affordable than other bamboo sheets.

Viscose: Viscose is a type of rayon that takes on additional processing, which leads to more waste and uses more harsh chemicals to produce.

Lyocell: Lyocell is made by letting bamboo pulp dissolve in a non-toxic solvent and spun into fibers. This manufacturing process is better for the worker and produces less waste, which is better for the environment.

Bamboo Linen: Or labeled as natural bamboo or bast bamboo fiber, bamboo linen is manufactured using a mechanical process. This type is less common as it is more labor-intensive, but it is made without chemicals.

Does bamboo linen keep you cool?

Bamboo fiber has moisture-wicking capabilities and highly breathable fabric. In most cases, you will find that bamboo sheets do keep you cooler throughout the night.

How To Wash Bamboo Sheets?

Most bamboo sheets are machine washable in cold water and on a gentle cycle with mild detergent. Line drying your bamboo sheet is the best way to preserve the quality of your sheet. However, if you have to use a dryer, choose a low heat setting. Bamboo sheets are prone to attract lint, so it is best to wash them alone.
