You never quite appreciate good bed sheets until you've experience what a difference they can make in your sleep (or nap) quality. There are plenty of debates around what the best thread count is or if you should go for organic bedding, but one thing to consider is to the material itself, especially if you're a hot sleeper during the summer or anytime of year. Bamboo sheets are not only soft, but they're cooling — no more tossing your sheets off in the middle of the night or waking up with sweaty bed head.

Bamboo sheets are a sustainable bedding win because they're made from a highly sustainable fabric. Bamboo is a self-regenerative, easy-to-grow plant, and it's usually grown without pesticides.

Are bamboo sheets cooling?

Bamboo sheets are softer than cotton (they feel silky to the touch), and more breathable, so you're not trapping heat under the sheets during the night. But in addition to being breathable, bamboo sheets have natural temperature regulating and moisture-wicking properties, which makes them excellent cooling sheets any time of year. They're also hypoallergenic, which makes them a great option for anyone with sensitive skin. Finally bamboo sheets are usually made with long fibers, which makes them durable and less susceptible to tearing, qualities you want when you're investing in something you'll use every day  for years to come.

It also bears mentioning that cooling stand to improve your overall sleep quality, even if you don't suffer from night sweats. Sleep experts typically recommend a bedroom temperature between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit for optimum sleep, and when you can't control the thermostat, bedding solutions can come in extra handy for better REM.

How to wash bamboo sheets

Most bamboo sheets are low maintenance and can be tossed in the washing machine, but use the cold cycle with no fabric softener. You can either hang dry or put them in the dryer on a low tumble setting. Bamboo sheets tend to wrinkle, so take them out of the dryer right when they're done and lay them flat or hang them, or leave the wrinkles for a comfy, relaxed look in your bed.

Ahead, find nine bamboo sheet sets that will help you sleep cool night after night.
