Much ado about Bamboo

1865F1CF-60DD-42AD-A309-463375D40711

Four month ago I was challenged by Linenly to try out their bamboo bedding.
If you’ve followed me for a while you’ll know that I am mildly obsessed with belgian linen and to be honest I didn’t think I was going to love the bamboo sheets.

I accepted their challenge, but I ordered the sheets to fit my daughters bed because I wasn’t ready to part with my belgian linen. Yes, I use my kids as guinea pigs! I have never heard a kid rave so much about their bedding, she absolutely loves it and complains if I change her sheets with something different. She kept telling me that I had to try them, so when she was away for the weekend, we slept in her bed ….

Okay, now I get it …. they really are beautiful to sleep in. They are soft and silky without being sticky or clingy, the fibres are cool and breathable and we truly did get a great nights sleep.

I was happy to get these sheet for the kids as they are not only affordable but they come from a sustainable source and are friendly to the planet, and now I’ve added a set for my own bed.

One of the best things about these bamboo sheets in particular is the ‘long side’ label, it is an absolute sanity saver and I can’t understand why it isn’t mandatory on all fitted sheets!

Oh, and Skipper loves them too, have a look at her doing her morning yoga session here …

If you want to give them a go, you can find them here.
Now excuse me while I pop back to bed for a quiet cup of coffee ….

What’s all the fuss about Bamboo?

Tired, tired, tired … everyone is tired!
Maybe they don’t know what I know … sleep is important!
I know that sounds pretty basic, we all know that sleep is important, but people are sleeping less than they have in the past and the quality of our sleep has also decreased substantially, which is obviously why we are all so tired!

Now, more than ever it is important to create a sanctuary in your bedroom where you can relax, unwind and get the best night sleep possible. Choosing the right bedding can be beneficial to getting that elusive good night sleep, but choosing the right bedding can be overwhelming, there is so much on offer and it’s confusing unless you know the facts.

The lovely people at Linenly know how obsessed I am with bedding, they believe in their product, and they offered me some of their bamboo sheets to try out and review.
Here’s what I learnt ….Bamboo is sustainable, eco-friendly, hypoallergenic, anti-bacterial, thermo-regulating, breathable, absorbent, durable and very luxurious. Pretty impressive huh!

Bamboo is growing in it’s popularity due to it’s sustainable and eco-friendly nature. Bamboo doesn’t requires chemicals and needs very little water to grow, healthy bamboo can grow up to one metre per day, every part of the plant can be used for food, building and of course … creating beautiful bamboo sheets. You can sleep easy knowing your sheets are friendly to the planet.

These silky soft sheets are also fabulous for allergy sufferers. The breathable nature of the fibres creates an environment that discourages dust mites, and because they are organic there are no harsh chemicals or dyes.

The thermo-regulating fabric is perfect for our Australian climate where the nights are hot and humid. These sheets are moisture wicking which means they draw the moisture away from your skin making you less ‘sticky’ and they are highly breathable which keeps the air flowing around your skin creating a cool environment.

Bamboo is a durable fibre that will outlast cotton if cared for correctly. It is incredibly soft and drapes beautifully over your bed with no ironing required.

What’s my verdict?
The initial investment may be a little higher for the luxury of bamboo sheets, but the peace of mind you get from using a sustainable source, along with the comfort and coolness of bamboo is definitely worth it.

Ettitude bamboo bedding.

logo-1459132560

About six months ago the gorgeous peeps and Ettitude sent me a pair of their bamboo lyocell pillowcases to try, oh my giddy aunt … they are so good!
Soft and smooth, and crazy comfortable!
So when they approached me to share a story with you about their Cloud Pink bedding, of course I agreed!

They sent me a Bamboo Daydream Duvet Cover Set in Cloud Pink and the fight is on … the 2 teen girls of the house are squabbling over it likes it’s a bucket of gold.

For now, It has ended up in Arabella’s room, and we’d love to show you how pretty it looks!

It is a darling shade of pink, not a sugary pink like I was expecting, but more of a blush pink, almost peachy. If you’re are thinking that pink is just for little girls, you are so wrong, this shade is quite grown up and will work well with a range of colour palettes.

Now, when I said it was soft, I meant beyond babies bottoms SOFT!
Their sheet and duvet sets are made from organic bamboo lyocell. I could go on about how this fabric is one of the most sustainable textile materials of the 21st century, but really, I think this will interest you more …
Organic bamboo lyocell is gentle on sensitive skin and kind to our hair, you can really get your beauty sleep with these bamboo sheets!

 If you suffer from acne, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis or other skin conditions, organic bamboo lyocell is your new best friend. It is free from harmful chemicals, irritants, allergens and is hypoallergenic.  Bamboo sheets are breathable, bacteria-proof and moisture-wicking which means they keep your skin free from sweat and bacteria all night long. They are also thermo-regulating, so you can sleep under these beauties all through the seasons.
