If you've made it onto our site, it is likely because you've figured out that bamboo sheets are the most sustainable and environmentally friendly option for you. Welcome to the club! It's probably safe to assume that you're also curious about what are bamboo sheets made out of.

"What are bamboo sheets made out of?", is one of the most common questions our customers ask us. The short answer is simply; bamboo. However, not all  manufacturers produce the same quality bamboo sheets. You'll be pleased to know that our sheets are 100% bamboo - our specialist team have combined everything you need to know about bamboo sheet materials in this article. 

This article intends to provide an answer to the question, "what are bamboo sheets made out of?", by outlining bamboo sheet materials, how are bamboo sheets made, and what makes Linenly's bamboo sheets more superior than other sheets.

Bamboo Sheet Materials

Before we can help you understand what are bamboo sheets made out of, we must first outline bamboo sheet materials and fabrics. You may have already heard of lyocell, rayon, or modal fabric. However, you may not be aware of the one thing these materials have in common: they are all derived from bamboo fibres.

Although lyocell, rayon, and modal fall under the umbrella of bamboo sheet materials, they can vary significantly. Material bamboo blends are standard in sheets, but the superior sheets are made with 100% bamboo. Linenly is the leading enterprise in premium, soft, 100% bamboo sheet sets

How Are Bamboo Sheets Made?

Now that we've covered bamboo sheet materials, let's now answer another frequently asked question, "how are bamboo sheets made?". Bamboo sheets are manufactured from bamboo fibres acquired from a specific species of bamboo (there are over 1,400 species of bamboo!).

How bamboo sheets are made will depend on the type of fibre that the sheets are made of. Remember our earlier mention of lyocell, rayon, and modal fabrics? The manufacturing process is different for each of them. Let's take a look.

What Are Bamboo Sheets Made Out Of?

Bamboo Rayon or Bamboo Viscose

Bamboo rayon or viscose is a versatile, regenerated cellulose fibre. Sheets made of bamboo rayon or bamboo viscose are chemically processed to achieve a soft feel, which completely defeats one of the significant advantages of buying bamboo in the first place.

Commonly referred to as a viscose process, these sheets' manufacturing uses toxic chemicals such as carbon disulphide. In short, bamboo rayon and bamboo viscose do not have the same anti-microbial advantages of 100% bamboo sheets.

Tencel Bamboo or Lyocell Bamboo

A better alternative to bamboo rayon or bamboo viscose sheets is Tencel bamboo or lyocell bamboo sheets. Although the same manufacturing process is involved in creating Tencel/lyocell sheets as bamboo rayon/viscose sheets, non-toxic solvents are used during the process. Additionally, manufacturing Tencel bamboo or lyocell bamboo sheets has lower emissions and uses less water to achieve.
