BambooDreams by DreamSacks: The Softest Sheets in the World?

By October 1, 2008

Follow me on:

If you suffer from insomnia, as I do, you'll understand why I've made my bed as comfortable as possible. Over the years, I've splurged on a pillowtop mattress, the very best down pillows, an excellent down comforter and, most recently, the most amazing set of sheets I've ever come across. These sheets are so amazing, I'm venturing outside my usual world of hair and makeup products to share them with you.

The sheets are made by DreamSacks (I pretty much live in their Cleo pajama set), a company based out of who knows where, that makes eco-friendly clothing and bedding from bamboo. (Who knew bamboo could be a million times softer than cotton?). These sheets feel like an old T-shirt that's been worn and washed for 20 years. The only downsides are the price (about $216 for a queen set) and the fact that the sheets are so soft, they appear slouchy, rather than crisp on the bed. I also wish I'd gotten white, instead of the blue because I'm really into neutrals these days. Because I just bought these, I have no idea how durable bamboo bedding is.

The company makes a whole host of bedding and clothing. I got mine at a great store in Seattle called Collective. Check out their Website to find a location near you or buy the sheets online.

I am using bamboo fiber bath towels and they are very fine and soft. They are also super absorbant, so they take much longer to dry. I live in Turkey, and I bought them here.

Hi!

I too am an insomniac that’s been on a life-mission to find the softest possible sheets. Those ones you mentioned sound awesome- I love the name, but definitely a bit expensive! A good alternative is the Pure Beech sheets from Beth Bath and Beyond- the web address to look at or buy the sheets online is:http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&sku=112370

I have turned SO many people on to these sheets and no one goes back. They are affordable and just the most incredible find. What makes them so super soft is they are made from 100% modal- look it up. I had never heard of it but it’s the most amazing material like. ever!

OK well good luck finding soft sheets and good sleep!

I have finally found the softest sheets in the world, Comphy Co who supplies linens to the 5 star resorts and spas has sheets they guarantee for 300 washes. I am sold and if you try them I promise you will love them. I feel like I am in a cloud. The best deal I found was at http://www.FreeIslandVacation.com King set for 120.00 and you can buy extra pillowcases!

Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you
