Keep cool with bamboo

At The Bamboo Shop, we know from experience that bamboo sheets are best for keeping you cool when temperatures are soaring.

And the experts agree! Australian Sleep Expert Elina Winnel recently shared tips on 10 Daily about how to keep cool. “Natural fibres adapt more easily to temperature fluctuations and allow our skin to breathe more freely. This enables us to regulate our own body temperature more effectively”. This is why it is so important to only use bedding made of natural fibres. She also noted that “for when it gets really hot, it may be helpful to have a set of bamboo sheets handy.”

“Bamboo is even more breathable than cotton and can absorb more sweat, whilst sticking to the body less.”

Why is bamboo less sticky than other materials, including other natural materials like cotton? Whereas cotton also scores well on breathability, bamboo is far superior when it comes to moisture wicking properties. Bamboo will wick, or move, moisture away from the body to the fabric’s outer surface where it can evaporate. This is similar to the way hi-tech active wear fabrics work, and it will help you keep dry, cool and comfy.

So if you ever get that hot sticky feeling, whether due to being a hot sleeper or hot temperatures. It’s time to give bamboo a go.

Other benefits of bamboo

The exceptional thermo-regulating properties of bamboo means it is cool in summer and warm in winter.

Even so, most people actually pick bamboo over cotton because of its unparalleled softness or for being a more eco friendly alternative. There truly is so much to love about bamboo.
