When considering bamboo for sheets and clothing, there is one question always asked. Are bamboo fibers warm? Bamboo bed sheets and clothing do, indeed, keep the body warm on long, cold winter nights. There are several reasons for bamboo’s ability to keep you warm, all of which have to do with the characteristics of the fibers themselves. The bamboo fabric is so soft that you won’t mind wrapping it close to take advantage of its warmth.
Bamboo fabric absorbs moisture. This wicks sweat away from the skin, allowing it to evaporate. In the winter, this will help keep your body warm, since wet skin becomes cold skin very fast when the temperature is low. With the sweat evaporating so fast, you will be dry and warm.
A Natural Insulation
Warm air is trapped in bamboo’s fibers, creating a natural insulation keeping skin nice and warm. Even though it is highly breathable, the warm air insulating the skin will only cool slowly, therefore keeping the body warm. This works for both clothing and bedding.
Bamboo is antibacterial and antimicrobial. This means it does not grow bacteria or mold that creates odor, like cotton and other materials. This results in clothing and sheets that do not smell and which can last longer between washes.
Bamboo has a lot to offer when used for clothing and bedding. It will keep your body warm during the winter months when it is too cold to venture outside. It also looks good and feels good against the skin. This versatile fabric is eco-friendly and easy on the wallet, which adds to its appeal.
