Are You Getting Real Bamboo? Don’t Be Bamboozled by Pretenders.

Do you sleep hot or cold? It’s the question that makes the difference in whether or not you sleep deeply and wake up feeling rested.

Did you know that 5% of the so-called “bamboo” sheets sold online and in stores are mostly blended with other fabrics? 

Only when bamboo is “pure” does it give you the sought-after 3 to 5 degree cooler or warmer temperatures that help you sleep comfortably throughout the night.

Bamboo pretenders cost about 10% of what real bamboo costs. Sure you pay more for quality. That’s true of most things worth having. Also it takes about three months to make a batch of bamboo sheets as it requires a lot of work to organically harvest bamboo in an eco-friendly manner. The pretenders, on the other hand, only take about a month since it requires no organic material to produce. 

High quality bamboo sheets are amazingly silky smooth and soft. They are also much cooler to the touch than the fakes. So if you have a fake bamboo sheet, you should be able to spot them out right away just by touching them.

The authentic, natural bamboo sheets will feel cool, silky, and soft. Even though high quality fake bamboo may be soft, it is not silky and smooth. In fact it’s rather lackluster and dull. Natural bamboo has a silky sheen to it.

The Wonders of Bamboo

Bamboo is a wunderkind like no other resource on our planet. Sustainability is one of the reasons bamboo has captured so much attention. Bamboo is self-replenishing, meaning once the plant is cut, it will regrow in three to five years -- without the need for pesticides or toxic chemicals.

When you decide on what products to buy, you probably look for the word ‘sustainable’ somewhere on the label. As it refers to our environment, sustainability is defined as: the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.

At Island Slumber, we are committed to the concept of ‘living green’ by offering top quality products made from bamboo. Bamboo has been around for centuries, but new technological processes can now transform bamboo into plush, breathable, hypoallergenic sheets and bedding, that keep you both cool and warm.

Did you know that bamboo releases 30 percent more oxygen into the atmosphere and absorbs more carbon dioxide than other plants? So, besides replenishing itself within three to five years, it’s also making the Earth greener and the air we breathe cleaner simply by existing.
