“You have really good sheets.”
Be still my heart. I love compliments as much as anyone (that means I love them a lot) but when this one was bestowed upon me recently my heart did a little somersault. I have good sheets! This is a big deal to me.
I take bedding seriously, always have. I’m also pretty into sleepwear and underwear. Basically, I get giddy about the details that make life’s quieter experiences a little prettier, more comfortable, a little more pleasant. And so bedding matters to me. But so does making responsible choices.
Bamboo sheets makes that really, really easy.
Here’s why it’s great: Bamboo is an abundant, easy-to-grow crop—which means that even when it’s not grown organically, it can be cultivated without pesticides or chemical fertilizers. (It isn’t always, though; do your homework.) It also produces incredibly soft fabric that drapes on your sleepy self in a way you can’t imagine. More pluses: It’s weirdly stain-proof, with the exception of blood,* and after many washes, it feels as soft as the day you cracked open the package. It helps keep you cool when it’s warm, and warm when it’s cool, and it’s never heavy or scratchy. The brands I’ve tried are BedVoyage and Bamboo Dreams. I love them equally. The only thing I have yet to do is replace my duvet cover with bamboo. Once I do, I may never make it out of the sack again.
Have you ever tried bamboo sheets?
P.S. Just make sure they’re 100% bamboo and not a blend.
P.P.S. Now who wants to take a nap?
* TMI alert: I mean real blood, like from a cut.
