Bamboo Sheets

After reading this post, I talked to Bradley about the seemingly wonderful traits of 100% bamboo sheets.  All it took was mentioning the special weave of bamboo fabric that wicks moisture away, and he was ready to try a set.  I took a trip to Tuesday Morning on Thursday and picked up a set of pale champagne colored sheets.

We have both noticed a significant difference over our 100% cotton sheets.  The bamboo set is much softer (and is supposed to get softer with each wash), keeps us much cooler, and the generous dimensions keep the sheets tucked in much better.  Also, it doesn’t hurt that bamboo is 100% biodegradable and does not require pesticides to grow.  I think we are sold on this switch.  It was about time to replace one of our cotton sets anyway, but we will still keep one set of cotton sheets in the rotation until it’s time for another new bamboo set.

Update 4/9/12:  We have been sleeping on these sheets for over a year and still love them!  They have only gotten softer as we’ve washed them.  We stay cooler under these than cotton.  Pretty quickly, we ended up buying a second set to replace the last of our cotton sheets!  The only possible downside to these sheets would be that they get really wrinkly, which doesn’t bother me in the least – but I know it might be more annoying to others.

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
