When it comes to luxurious sheets, you hear a lot about Egyptian cotton—but while cotton definitely deserves the love, it's not the only fabric choice out there. Take, for example, bamboo. Bamboo sheets are made from bamboo fibers (similar to eucalyptus sheets), and they're known for being silky smooth, soft, comfortable, and uber breathable.
Even better? They’re also way more sustainable. Compared to cotton, bamboo uses 200 times less water to grow, plus bamboo itself is easier to grow and cultivate. The material is also naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, as well as less likely to tear or pill. If you have sensitive skin, sleep hot, or want to be more sustainable at home, bamboo really is the way to go.
Here, the best bamboo sheets.
Ettitude Bamboo Lyocell Signature Sateen Sheet Set
Ettitude is perhaps the most well-known bamboo bedding brand, and their Original Bamboo Lyocell Sheet Sets are some of the best out there. Made of the brand's CleanBamboo fabric, it has a silky soft sateen weave that's breathable, hypoallergenic, and totally luxe. Honestly, these might be the softest sheets you'll ever feel.
This set has a few nice extras, including deep pockets that'll fit both regular and deep pocket mattresses up to 20 inches and top/bottom labels that make it easier to make your bed. There are six sizes and 11 colors available, and each set comes with a 30-night trial period so you can be sure you love it before committing.
Kassatex Linen-Bamboo Sheet Set
Whoever decided to combine linen and bamboo, AKA two of the softest, most breathable materials you can get for your bed, deserves an award. Kassatex's Linen-Bamboo Sheets are made of a combination of linen and rayon from bamboo, resulting in exceptionally soft sheets that are perfect for anyone who loves the look of linen but isn't sold on the feel.
Naturally antimicrobial and eco-friendly (linen is also known as a sustainable alternative to cotton), these sheets are a no-brainer. They're only available in four colors and two sizes, but they also come with a 60-night trial period and free shipping, so you know you're making a good purchase. They also happen to be a favorite of commerce editor Nicole Lund's.
I am obsessed with these sheets. Not only are they one of the softest sheet sets I've ever slept on, but they actually keep me cool all night. Plus, you can choose to forgo the top sheet, which I appreciate as someone who lives the no-top-sheet life.
Layla Bamboo Sheets
You might be more familiar with Layla's mattresses, but their bamboo sheets are definitely worth checking out. While this set feels heavier than lighter cotton fabrics, the sheets are incredibly breathable so you stay cool and comfortable throughout the night. They’re also temperature-regulating and wick moisture away better than cotton and polyester performance fabrics, so you stay dry even if you tend to sweat in the middle of the night.
While this set only comes in two colors (white and gray), there are seven sizes to choose from, including more uncommon options like Split King and Twin XL. The best part? They come with a whopping 120-night trial period and five-year warranty.
Cariloha Classic Bamboo Sheets
Cariloha’s entire brand is built around sustainable bamboo fabric, so it’s no surprise that they have one of the best bamboo sheet sets around. These classic bamboo sheets have a super soft twill weave and thermal regulating properties designed to keep your bed cool. Each set has extra-deep pockets so it'll fit comfortably around tall, pillow-top mattresses without the corners popping off.
If you want something that’s even more high-end, you can also opt for Cariloha’s resort collection, which has a softer weave than their classic sets.
Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set
There’s a reason the Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set made the list of Oprah’s favorite things for two years in a row. Made from premium 100 percent viscose from bamboo fabric, these sheets come with the guarantee of being the softest sheets you’ll ever sleep on. They’re also totally breathable and moisture-wicking, so even if you sweat while you sleep you’ll wake up feeling dry and comfortable.
Cozy Earth uses bamboo that's sourced from USDA-certified organic farms, and their sheets only come in dye-free white. You can sleep soundly knowing these sheets are both pesticide- and chemical-free, and way better for the environment than other sheet sets out there.
The Company Store Company Cotton Bamboo Sateen Sheet Set
If you're not ready for 100 percent bamboo sheets, The Company Store makes their bamboo sheets from a combination of bamboo and combed cotton sateen. The combination of super soft bamboo and luxurious combed cotton makes for a sheet set that's comfy, durable, and totally worth adding to your bedding rotation.
Because it’s made with a specialized weave, the sateen finish gives this set a silky touch and a subtle shine that makes it look especially high-end. It fits mattresses up to 16 inches thick and comes in seven neutral colors that'll look good in any space, plus comes with the option to personalize.
PureCare Bamboo Sheet Set
Bamboo is naturally antimicrobial, but PureCare takes it one step further by treating their ultra-soft, sateen weave bamboo sheets with silver chloride, a natural mineral that helps prevent the buildup of bacteria, mold, and mildew. This helps increase the sheets’ life and longevity, reducing stains, deterioration, and lingering odors.
The fitted sheet also comes with Precision-Fit technology, which combines a thick elastic band and deep pockets to ensure that the sheets stay fully enveloped around mattresses up to 18 inches deep. Plus, the top sheet is four inches wider than most, so you don’t have to struggle to stay covered even if you toss and turn. It’s the little things.
BedVoyage Bamboo Bed Sheets
Made with bamboo fibers from organically-grown bamboo and a tight twill weave that’s resistant to pilling, the BedVoyage Bamboo Bed Sheets have a cashmere-like feel that will make you never want to say goodbye to your bed again. With an extra 12 inches of fabric, the flat sheet is extra large for extra comfort and the fitted sheet comfortably fits on mattresses up to 18 inches thick. They're also hypoallergenic, so they’re ideal for anyone with sensitive or acne-prone skin.
Luxome Luxury Bamboo Sheets
Luxome's Premium Bamboo Sheets are luxury done right. Made with 100 percent OEKO-TEX certified organically grown bamboo, this sheet set is pure bamboo without any cheaper filler fabrics added in. The result is a high-end set of sheets with a buttery finish, optimal cooling ability, and exceptional thermal regulation, designed to keep you cool in the summer and nice and toasty in the winter.
Malouf Woven Rayon Bamboo Sheets
Malouf's Bamboo Sheets are made with 100 percent rayon from bamboo and speciality round, smooth fibers that give them a silky soft finish and make them even more ideal for sensitive skin. The fitted sheet is made with what Malouf calls “Universal Fit”—a combination of deep pockets and a full-length elastic that helps them perfectly wrap around mattresses from six to 22 inches deep, without any bunching or pulling.
Malouf is also a Certified B Corporation, which means they value fair working conditions and the environment, so you can feel good that your purchase is making a positive impact.
