i bought these sheets after reading that bamboo is supposed to sleep cooler. I'm a hot sleeper and was looking for something cool and smooth. bamboo or no bamboo source, rayon is rayon. i found the sheets to be very soft...too soft...they cling to your body like some cheap rayon dress. The result is definitely not cooling. if you are a hot sleeper looking for something cooler, i actually really prefer my high quality 1200 thread count sateen cotton sheets. ok..next topic. lint. OH MY. i washed these with vinegar as some people suggested it would cut down on the lint. i cleaned my lint screen 3 times in the course of one dryer load. the lint screen was a solid rectangle, one inch thick each time. i could have made pillows with it. seriously...it seemed to produce more lint than even conceivable. Also, this was a problem during normal use. one night's sleep would produce little soft pills. these would go away in the wash/dry. but the pills made the sheets very un-smooth. I gave this a few washes to see if it would get better, but lint galore every time. I would not buy these again. I plan on using them to put on the ground during picnics. by the way, the natural color sheets are kind of a butter yellow color
Not very happy with this purchase. I washed and dried these according to instructions before using. As I was putting them on the bed, I already noticed the seams coming apart and loose threads. Within 4 days of sleeping on them, there was pilling of the sheets in the areas where your body touches them. It still was very smooth in areas not touched. I am half afraid to wash them again now.
I am absolutely in love with these sheets; in fact, I'm back buying 2 more sets. I have also given them as a gift, and the recipient loved them as much as I do. They're SUPER soft and comfortable, like silk, and although our sheets often get covered in hair from our three furry dogs, these don't have that problem at all! The fur just slides right off. BUY these...you won't regret it!!!
Love these sheets! I will buy some more of these, count on it! I have washed and used and washed and used these sheets over and over...they're still wonderful. When I take them out of the dryer and put them on the bed, the seets just g-l-i-d-e across and smooth down so-o pretty!!

This is my first experience with bamboo sheets, so I wasn't sure what to expect. My friend recommended bamboo sheets due to the softness, and on that regard, it hit the mark! These are by far the softest sheets I've ever laid on! My husband even commented on how soft they were. The only downfall is the fuzz bunnies! I washed them prior to putting them on the bed, but still, they were everywhere. On my carpet, comforter, and I've ruined a pair of socks wearing them to bed. (I got the dark blue sheets!) Hopefully, the more you wash them, the less 'fuzzies' everywhere...
While these sheets are soft, as is expected from bamboo, they aren't top quality. The sheets are quite thin, and as of 2 washings, they are still pilling quite badly. Considering how expensive some bamboo sheets are, these aren't a terrible value, but if you want an excellent product, you're going to have to pay more.
I have never in my life slept in sheets so soft. I will never put anything else on my bed. If you haven't tried 100% bamboo sheets, you have to try them. It is the best purchase I ever made. I literally won't put anything else on the bed. I strip my bed and wash the bamboo sheets and put them back on the bed. They are soft as silk coming out of the dryer. I even ordered another set in a different color.
I read the reviews for this product prior to ordering. It seemed the king-size sheets didn't have the same issues with workmanship/quality that the queen-size sheets had in the reviews on them.When I received the sheets, I was elated at the apparent quality and comfort as I opened the package. As always, I threw the sheets in the washer for one gentle cycle, then dried them on a low temp setting. When they came out of the dryer, they were frayed and tattered already, and they hadn't even been on a bed yet.For that reason, I would caution any shopper to pass on these sheets. They are simply not constructed in such a manner that they would hold together. I have already applied for a refund, which Overstock is handling as I type this review.
These sheets are SOOOO soft! I washed before use and lots of fluff came off in the dryer, but that's typical of new bamboo sheets. Since we've owned bamboo sheets before we were prepared for that. They've been on the bed now a week and they are silky smooth, cool for summer, and just wonderful. We've had no problem with pilling, as sometimes can occur. In the past we've dealt with any pilling with a sweater shaver. That's only necessary when the sheets are brand new and it does stop after a few washes. Some of our bamboo sheets have lasted us nearly 15 years and they're still wonderful. We selected the purple in this set, and its very accurate to what is shown on the website - a nice medium purple. I'm so glad we decided to get these. Our 5 year old now wants "soft" sheets on his bed!!!!
These were the worst sheets ever ordered! This set was a replacement for a set with a top sheet so small it didn't fit across the mattress. This top sheet had two pieces of a different sheet (I assume) about 12" wide sewn to each side to make it appear to be a king size sheet. I have had good experience with that specific sheet in the past but these past two orders have made me decide to never order that item again.
I heard about these sheets while on a carribean cruise. I didn't get to buy them while on an island. As soon as we returned home I searched for them on-line. I washed them right away and put them on our bed. I use cream on my legs at night and it did stain them. You can only use a mild soap and cold water so the stains have not come out. But they are really soft and comfortable. They come out of the washing machine really stiff but soften up in the dryer. You can only dry them on low but they dry really quickly.
These sheets are fantastic, and I'm a linens snob. When they showed up I was impressed with the feel of them, but when I put them on the bed they were too slippery in a plastic-y kind of way; so I washed them, and OMG the difference! I was careful to wash them exactly per the instructions, because there were a lot of reviews that talked about pilling. Delicate cycle, cool water, mild soap (woolite), tumble dry low (I did use an unscented dryer sheet)... and they came out like crepe silk, NO pilling AT ALL, just luxurious silky fabulousness. They are VERY thin, which might bother some, but I take it as part of the luxury texture, knowing how strong bamboo is so I'm not worried. BTW, the "au natural" color listed for the King size is the same thing as ecru.
I love these sheets. I've bought two sets. I ordered the gray, and was disappointed that the color was a very light gray, with a tinge of blue, it wasn't the dark gray that's in the picture. The feel of these sheets is great. I would give it 5 stars, but the flat sheet is too narrow for our king bed. I wish it were wider.
These sheets are wonderful! I was a bit iffy about then because the thread count is low, but they are extra soft. It feels like silk. They make my feel like a heavenly bliss. I can't wait to go back home and get in the bed now! lol Purchase these because you can't go wrong.
