Bamboo is great for sensitive skin. Bamboo is often accompanied with rayon, which uses bamboo to create lighter sheets than cotton. Bamboo also contributes to great temperature regulation due to its moisture-wicking ability. If you often feel hot when sleeping, this is a great choice for you.
Sustainable Hemp and Linen
Organic sustainable hemp and linen bedding are devoid of toxic chemicals. Its fibers are stronger than cotton and more durable. The hemp plant grows quickly, needs no pesticides and little water. Hemp bed sheets are warm in winter and cool in summer, and more absorbent than cotton for night sweating.
The chemicals in colored or printed sheets are harmful to living things and the environment. It’s healthier and safer to choose natural colored linen or hemp bedding.
I bet you’ve never heard of Eucalyptus fabric! It happens to be very soft, cushy and comfortable, creating increased comfort for sleeping. It is also resistant to insects, mold, and dust – a perfect choice for allergy sufferers.
Organic cotton is easy to care for, breathable and cost-effective. Cotton has the natural ability to absorb water up to one-fourth of its weight. It takes a lot of water to create cotton bedding, but the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
Newer Materials: Tencel Lyocell, Modal, and Refibra
Another eco-friendly bedding choice is made using wood fibers. Eucalyptus, birch or beech woods are typical choices. This type of fabric is referred to as Tencel Lyocell and Modal.
Refibra uses Tencel and recycled cotton scraps. This combination feels great and uses a circular manufacturing process. They are also shrink-resistant, antibacterial, and absorb moisture for a healthy sleep.
Organic latex is a great material for constricting firm foam mattresses. It’s made from certified rubber sap that is poured into molds. It’s also dust, mold, mildew and bacteria resistant. The impact on your health is significant.
