Bamboo bedding comes from a grass called bamboo which is grown largely in Asia. Bamboo is known as the fastest growing grass in the world. Bamboo provides ten times more yield than cotton. Recently, bamboo is being used for material to make clothing and even bedding and sheets.
A number of people prefer to use the bamboo bedding because it is organic and environment friendly. The bamboo sheets are 100 percent natural. They are biodegradable, which means they are capable of decomposing unlike plastics.
Bamboo is also a renewable resource. Even if people use this resource extensively, there is no marked effect on the environment because new bamboos can be planted to replace them.
Aside from the eco-friendly features of bamboo sheets, another reason why the bedding is better is the fact that it is more absorbent than other fabrics. This makes them very comfortable to lie on because they absorb human sweat quickly especially during humid summers.
The fabrics are also breathable. The bamboo fiber is made up minute gaps and holes which provides ventilation to the fabric. This keeps the fabric cool even when during the hot season.
Bamboo sheets are also natural hypoallergenic. People who have allergy problems will find that the fabric will keep them allergy free. The sheets will not trigger any allergies.
Bamboo bedding and sheets are also antibacterial. The fabric naturally repels insects. This is the reason why bamboo grass is used as a natural pesticide. Their natural antibacterial property helps make them effective in fighting microbes and harmful bacteria which can cause sickness.
