WHAT ARE BAMBOO SHEETS MADE OF?
STRENGTH-BASED Bamboo rayon or viscose is the most common fiber used for the production of bamboo sheets. It’s the first generation of the cellulosic fibers derived from the bamboo plant. It’s breathable and comfy to use. However, you have to choose one that’s processed without using chlorine or bleach.
Next, we have the second generation fabric called modal. This is extra soft and bears the high-wet strength, making it machine-washable. It’s also safe to tumble dry. In addition, modal bamboo fabric is usually used for clothing and outerwear bamboo sheet.
OUR STORY Also, the modal bamboo fabric has a brighter color. It doesn’t gray quickly, as compared to cotton. In fact, the production of modal doesn’t require bleaching. Aside from that, the smooth surface of modal fabric makes it less likely for minerals to deposit into it. This is why it’s a great bedding sheet for areas with hard water.
