When people ask what Bamboo rayon is, we like to describe it as ‘the process of converting a bamboo stalk into a fiber’. Wikipedia describes it this way: “Rayon is a manufactured regenerated cellulose fiber’. The term viscose or rayon will often be used interchangeably, in the describing of the bamboo fiber process.
Rayon fibers are considered neither natural or artificial, as the term ‘regenerated’ refers to the fact that a chemical change happens in the processing of bamboo. The reformed or reconstructed bamboo cellulose fiber is called regenerated cellulose. Although that sounds fancy, there are so many benefits of sleeping on bamboo bedding. You’ll enjoy the better sleep that you’ll get, as Bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic, which is a favorite benefit to our customers. This means that bamboo sheets are incredibly soft and comforting to skin.
Bamboo is a super breathable fabric, the micro-gaps and holes in the fibers allow heat to escape, so you’ll sleep cooler. The thermal regulating capabilities mean that the fabric adjusts to your body’s needs.
You’ll appreciate that bamboo wicks moisture if you tend to perspire when sleeping. It also resists odors and bacteria so your linens will stay fresh longer. People that suffer from skin sensitivities or allergies are comforted and soothed by bamboo fibers. The smooth silky feel helps reduce eczema and psoriasis symptoms. Bamboo gets softer when washed, and is an easy-care fabric that goes right into the washer.
Many who’ve made the switch from cotton to bamboo bed sheets have said they’ll never go back to cotton. Make the switch and you shall see!
