How Bamboo Sleepwear Can Deliver a Better Night's Sleep

Dreaming of a good night’s sleep? With the line between work and home life becoming increasingly blurred, creating a relaxing sanctuary to drift off to sleep has become even more important. Upgrading to bamboo sheets or pyjamas might just set the tone for an all-round  better nights sleep. 

Creating a relaxed space for sleeping means choosing sleepwear and bedding that allows you to move comfortably and stops you from overheating. Our body needs its core temperature to drop by as much as two degrees during the night, which is why we can find it so much harder to sleep on balmy summer evenings. So opt for fabrics that help you maintain an ideal core temperature to keep you from sweating, tossing and turning. 

Why we love bamboo

One of the reasons bamboo is such a great choice for sleepwear and bedding is because it is naturally breathable and thermo-regulating. The smooth, flat weave allows warm air to pass easily through the fabric, keeping you cool in summer while helping to insulate your body during the colder months. 

Bamboo also wicks away moisture from your skin which assists your body in maintaining the ideal temperature

It’s basically the Goldilocks of sleepwear: the perfect weight and breathability for all seasons. Never too hot or too cold; always just right. 

What makes bamboo sleepwear and bedding so deliciously cosy to sleep under? The bamboo fibre itself has a smooth, round surface. This texture gives it a beautifully soft feel that drapes wonderfully and feels silk-like against the skin. 

It also has a slight sheen that gives the fabric and fresh, crisp look. Like a five-star hotel without the five-star prices. Bamboo feels deliciously cool when you first get into bed and envelops you in a kind of cloud-like softness. 

If you have sensitive skin or allergies, bamboo makes an ideal choice. The smooth surface won’t pull at your skin and bamboo’s naturally hypoallergenic properties means less irritation. 

Bamboo sleepwear makes for the kind of flowy pyjamas you can slip into and create your own private oasis. Exuding the kind of effortless luxe that you might experience in a 5-Star hotel or day spa .So comfortable you’ll think nothing of wearing them for an entire afternoon of Netflix and chocolate. 

Perhaps the best thing about bamboo is it offers a sustainable alternative to other natural fibres. Bamboo grows quickly and regenerates easily. It’s naturally pest-resistant so can be grown without hazardous pesticides. Learn more about why we choose bamboo here
