Here's a little backstory. My boyfriend hates sheets. I have tried cotten sheets, egyptian cotten, flannel, jersey, you name it, he hates it. he claims they get tangled and make him hot and sweaty and uncomfortable. I had a friend reccomend bamboo sheets to me and after reading the reviews here i purchased these. I ordered the gray and found they were a nice neutral color that works well in my dark wood bedroom. When I recieved them washed them right away in cold water and didnt have any problems with them bleaching out or losing color which some other reviewers had. I put them on the bed and long story short, both my boyfriend and i LOVE them. We live DC so it's pretty warm out and he says they keep him cool but still covered. I think they're increadibly soft and really luxurious. My mother came to visit and she too loved them (and everyone knows the mom seal of approval is the highest award of them all) so, long story short, these are a great buy. The only negative thing about them is they wrinkle very easily which doesnt bother me in the slightest but I thought i would offer a heads up if that's something that bothers you.
These sheets are very soft and flowy. They feel good against the skin. They come out of the dryer virtually wrinkle free. The only reason I didn't give a five star rating is because I ordered white, but I think I received the ecru sheets. That's fine, an exchange isn't worth the hassle for a color that also matches my decor. Also, the stitching on the hem of one edge of the flat sheet missed the sewing machine. It's only a couple inches, but the edge is raw and will ravel unless I use my own sewing machine on it. Otherwise, the material is very soft, much nicer than cotton. I am going to buy some of these sheets for a Christmas present.
These sheets are great at first, out of the package they feel amazing and the first few weeks of sleeping in them really is wonderful but that silky feeling doesn't last. Like other cheap cotton sheets they started to pill and that bumpy feeling on my bare legs is enough to drive me insane! I hand picked off each pill and gave them another shot but the pills returned. I'm super bummed because I did love these sheets at first and I bought the matching duvet cover, both in grey. They're beautiful but not up to my standards.
I had heard these keep you cool at night and a very comfortable fabric. I wanted to try them out & see if the bamboo was all it was said to be, I did some comparrison pricing at many different stores. I was finding Bamboo & Cotton blends (more cotton than bamboo) for just a little under the price of these 100% bamboo. Since the price here at Overstock was very affordable and much better then similar items at other locatoins, I placed the order. They wash great, wrinkle bad if you dont take them out o f the dryer immediately, but you can fluff them and the wrinkles will come out. The fit is great and plenty of room for the thicker mattresses. The feel of the fabric is a very silky soft touch and they definitley are a cooler fabric for these hot summer nights. These sheets will now be my summer sheets, I have ordered a 2nd pair and likely a 3rd in the near future. I dont think you can go wrong with these sheets.
I had a set of bamboo sheets before from a different brand, and expected these to be just as good. They pilled up as we used them the first time, and washing did not take the pills off. They are soft, but not as high quality as my other sheets.
I ordered these sheets because the last set of bamboo sheets I ordered were great. The sheets are super soft and the color is great, however the color bleaches out very easily from certain facial creams, etc. and after having them for only a couple of months the seams of the pillow cases are ripping.
I hated these sheets!! I bought these and didn't use them right away, so I could not return them. They are not soft, they get hard and crinkly when damp or wet. Don't wake up sweaty, your sheets will be crunchy. They also slipped off the mattress every day. I would not recommend them.
After much looking around, I purchased this sheet set. I've been a fan of bamboo rayon for a number of years, and am very impressed with these sheets. For the price, they are excellent! I have an amazing king size bed, and these sheets made it all the more amazing. Getting out of bed is near to impossible because they really do feel that awesome! I do feel as though they will hold up for a number of years with consistent use, but they are not the thickest sheets ever. They are comfortable when it comes to temperature, and not too stuffy at all. They fit my king size euro top mattress perfectly, and haven't stretched out at all as of yet. They have been laundered three times thus far, and have held up well! My only complaint is the gray is more of a grey ( a bit lighter than featured in the picture, and in reality more of a silver hue).
I had picked up some bamboo sheets at a discount store and loved them. I had been looking for over a year for a replacement set before I took the plunge and ordered these. It was worth the wait and the cost. When I washed the sheets they became stiff and coarse. I thought at first this was going to be a disaster. But, after drying them as instructed, they became soft and silky. Bamboo sheets are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I just ordered another set in the same color (grey)!
We washed the sheets first, then bad the bed. The pillow cases were extremely tight for standard pillows, and one of the seams ripped right away. We called o.co which were very helpful and sent out replacement pillow cases right away. Customer service was great, but the sheets weren't. The replacement cases were equally right are really don't match the original sheets. They got incredibly wrinkled upon washing. I would not buy these sheets again.
This was my first experience with bamboo sheets - tag says the contents are "100% viscose from bamboo". When I unzipped the plastic bag the chemical fumes were extremely strong. Wondered why sheets would smell like that ? I washed the sheets hoping to get the smell out and see how they laundered. Most ( but not all) of the chemical smell came out and the sheets came out of the dryer VERY wrinkled - bunched up. I expected some wrinkling with it being a natural fiber but these looked like they had been wadded up for weeks. I 'm not going to iron sheets. Maybe , for bamboo sheets these are "good quality" but I did not like them.
I had been looking all over for bamboo sheets, but no one had them in stock. I was excited to finally find some at o.com. I absolutely love the sheets. They are very soft and warm!!
