Are Bamboo Sheets Worth The Money?


Have you ever heard of Bamboo Cotton Sheets?

No matter how many times we hear it, we still find ourselves saying, "What?" But this is not a new phenomenon (as in, bamboo cotton sheets are not new) but rather a reference to the fact that so many people don't know what they are and WHY they're so amazing.

We're here to change that.

The Sienna Living Bamboo Cotton Collection is our most popular at the Manchester Factory—and for good reason. This collection is made up of sheets that have a 400 Thread Count fabric composition of 60% bamboo and 40% Egyptian Cotton, making them stronger and more durable than stand-alone bamboo sheets. 

So are they worth the money?


Are Bamboo Sheets Good?

Everyone knows that when it comes to a good night's rest, your bedding is everything. If you're not in the right comfort zone, then you'll never be able to sleep properly. And if you are going to invest in sheets for yourself and your family, shouldn't it be the very best?

Here are just three of the top benefits of Bamboo Bedding.

Benefit One: Hypoallergenic

For starters, the bamboo cotton sheets are hypoallergenic, so you don't have to worry about dust mites or other allergens. They're also naturally antibacterial and antimicrobial, so you can breathe easy knowing your sheets are good for your health!

And since they're breathable, moisture-wicking fabrics that keep you cool and dry all night long, you won't have any more of those sweaty wake-ups in the middle of the night.


Benefit Two: Thermoregulates Body Temperature

Are you a hot sleeper? Do you toss and turn all night because your sheets are too hot? If so, you need to invest in bamboo sheets.

Bamboo is a breathable fabric that wicks moisture away from your body, so you stay cool and dry all night long. 

So Simply means that it keeps you nice and cool and summer and warm in winter, which makes this collection perfect for a hot Australian night.


Benefit Three:  Soft and Comfortable 

This could be one of the most important factors when purchasing bedding.

It is comfortable and soft and what we like to say at the Manchester Factory is that the Sienna Living collection will make slipping into bed a definite treat enticing you with a silky and smooth texture.


But is bamboo better than cotton better?

Bamboo is a sustainable resource that grows quickly and easily without using pesticides or fertilizers—making them a great option for those concerned about the environment. 

When it comes to sheets, you really can't beat bamboo.

What are Cotton Sheets?

The comfort factor that has made cotton the go-to choice for bed sheets for decades. Cotton is a natural fibre that is breathable, which makes it very comfortable to sleep on. It also absorbs moisture well, so it will keep you cool during hot summer nights.

You’ll find cotton in a variety of weights and styles, including percale, sateen and flannel. The weave plays an important role in how soft or smooth your sheets feel.

Percale or sateen is smoother than plain weave sheets because there are more threads per inch of fabric; flannel has a napped finish that gives it more texture than other fabrics.

Here’s why: 



  • Natural 
  • Available in a wide range of thread count  
  • Breathable and Cool 
  • Soft 
  • Variety of price ranges 



  • Not as soft as cotton 
  • Less Eco Friendly
  • The quality of the cotton can vary
