Bamboo Linens! Their softness is amazing only until you discover that its silk-like softness can even adjust to your body temperature due to its wicking properties.
While most people buy bamboo linens and sheets for its extremely silky and comfortable feel, they soon discover that it has another amazing property: wicking - that is moisture absorbent and therefore staying couple of degrees cooler in the heat of the summer and keeping you warmer during the cold of the winter.
Wicking properties simply keep moisture away from the body when the fabric is in contact with the skin. As compared to cotton, which absorbs about 6% of the moisture, and polyester which absorbs about 0.5%, bamboo fabric absorb about %20 of the moisture away from the body and skin. Cotton and polyester hang on to sweat and make the fabric heavy and moist.
Wicking properties of bamboo linens, bed sheets, pillow cases, andcomforters allow the fabric to absorb and evaporate the moisture and carries it away from your body and your skin and to the outside of the fabric which allows you to stay cool and dry. This is what some people refer to as – bamboo fabrics used in bedding and linens are “breathable fabric“.
The moisture absorbent characteristics of bamboo makes bamboo a very good thermal regulator and that is how Bamboo linens and sheets keeps you cool in summer and warm in winter.
Here’s another great aspect… They’re affordable! Not only are they affordable but they last years longer than conventional cotton or silk! We love that!
