Reading up on Domino’s shopping guides is like having your own personal product concierge. We do the tedious part—deep-dive research, hands-on testing, and tapping experts for advice—so all you have to do is hit “add to cart.” That’s why we call them Simply the Best.

If you’re considering adding a set of bamboo sheets to your bedding rotation, we’re here to cheer you on. There are serious perks to bamboo. First of all, it’s naturally antimicrobial and hypoallergenic—a win for anyone with sensitive skin, allergies, or eczema. Bamboo sheets can be super-breathable and moisture wicking, too, since they absorb more water (ahem, sweat) than even cotton does. Whether you overheat in the night, need a gentle set of sheets to soothe irritable skin, or simply are ready for something new, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve tested the best bamboo sheets and have narrowed down your options to the five sets we think are worth your hard-earned money and precious hours of shut-eye.

“For me, sheets are like clothing: They’re intensely personal,” says designer Nate Berkus, who knows a thing or two about the importance of getting good sleep. (He is a dad of two little ones and has collaborated with Beautyrest.) If you’re new to bamboo sheets, Berkus suggests starting small. “You could buy a pillowcase first; then you’ll know for certain that what you’re sleeping on is something that you love.”

Or if you’re like us and always tempted to try out anything new, you won’t regret going all in with the whole set, and you’ll probably want a second one ready in the linen closet. We do. Scroll on for our Domino-tested and -approved picks for the best bamboo sheets.

Our Favorites

Best Cooling: Ettitude Signature Sateen Sheet Set

Best Cooling

Queen Sateen Sheets, Ettitude

$229
Shop Now

Sizes: Twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king | Return policy: Within 30 days, store credit for returns up to 60 days | Care: Machine-wash cold

What we like:

  • Moisture-wicking, breathable weave
  • Available in 10 colors
  • Brand is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certified

Worth noting:

  • Minor piling
  • Fits slightly larger than sized

Why we chose it: These supremely soft sheets sleep as cool as they claim.

After hearing whispers about Ettitude’s Signature Sateen sheets and their next-level softness, staff writer (and self-professed hot sleeper) Kenya Foy couldn’t resist trying the brand out for herself. A few months’ worth of sweat-free sleeps later, and she can confidently confirm the brand’s claims—these linens feel as smooth as silk. Plus, they offer all the usual benefits of bamboo: they’re hypoallergenic and cooling, which went a long way towards keeping Foy comfortable and dry throughout the night. Other reviewers echo her sentiments, writing, “It’s such a treat to have super soft, comfy sheets to cover up with each night. They do wrinkle pretty easily but I like the lived-in look…and will only buy Ettitude from now on.”

There are a couple of caveats, however, worth mentioning. For starters, Foy wouldn’t describe her set as taut-fitting as the standard. These provide a little extra wiggle room, though not to the point of looking sloppy or sliding off the mattress. Foy also noted some minor piling after several washes, but the problem seemed to resolve itself after she switched over to air-drying only.

Best Colors: Sunday Citizen Premium Bamboo Fitted Sheet

Best Colors

Premium Bamboo Fitted Sheet, Queen, Sunday Citizen

$100
Shop Now

Sizes: Queen and king | Return policy: Within 90 days | Care: Machine-wash cold

What we like:

  • Available in 9 dreamy colors
  • Supremely soft to the touch
  • Including a top sheet in the set is optional

Worth noting:

  • Some sizes and colors of pillowcases currently sold out

Why we chose it: The array of soft, soothing color options are easy on your (tired) eyes. 

These Sunday Citizen fitted sheets check all the boxes: They’re wildly soft, breathable even on the hottest of nights, and ultra-gentle for sensitive skin. They have one advantage that the other selections on this list don’t, though. Whereas those brands mostly stick to neutrals, Sunday Citizen offers an array of calming colors that cast a relaxing glow on your bedroom. There’s no going wrong colorwise, but we’re partial to the calming blush hue. Another feature we love? Their sets are top sheet-optional. So whether you’re firmly on Team Flat Sheet or somehow kick it to the bottom of the bed every night, you have the choice to include it in your set or not. 

Best Luxury: Cozy Earth Bamboo Sheet Set

Bamboo Sheet Set, Queen, Cozy Earth

$369 $295

Sizes: Twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, California king, and split king | Return policy: Within 100 days | Care: Machine-wash cold

What we like:

  • Feels like sleeping on a cloud
  • Includes a 10-year warranty that covers pilling, rips, and tears
  • Easily fits tall and pillow-top mattresses

Worth noting:

  • The priciest option on this list

Why we chose it: Oprah Winfrey calls them “the softest ever,” and we agree.

Our tester piggybacks on Oprah Winfrey’s enthusiasm for these bamboo sheets from Cozy Earth, noting their butterlike softness. Their cooling capability is no joke either, even when put to the test during the first steamy nights of summer. Before you even take as much as a nap on them, though, you’ll be impressed by the charming (and practical!) tote bag the set is packaged in. That makes them especially perfect to travel with or gift to a luxury-loving friend. You’ll pay a pretty penny for this set, but when taken care of properly, they should last you at least a decade. If they don’t, they’re covered by Cozy Earth’s warranty. 

Best Soft-to-the-Touch: Pom Pom at Home Bamboo Sateen Sheet Set

Best Soft To The Touch

What we like:

  • Free shipping on orders over $50 (in continental U.S.)
  • 15% off your first order
  • Gets softer after each wash

Worth noting:

  • Some sizes are low in stock or currently sold out

Why we chose it: These aren’t made of cashmere, but they sure do feel like it.  

Not wanting to get out of bed because your sheets are too soft? That’s a good problem our tester ran into. (Whether or not your boss buys that excuse is another thing.) Pom Pom at Home’s bamboo sateen is that soft. “Soft, smooth and most importantly of all breathable, these feel like climbing into a cloud,” photo editor Andie Diemer says. “They seemed to get softer with each wash, and they keep my always-running-hot husband cool throughout the entire night.” She notes that while they do have some natural wrinkles after each washing, it’s by no means a deal breaker; the gentle feel and their hypoallergenic qualities more than make up for it. Whether you’re seeking sheets that are right for sensitive skin, cooling for hot nights, or simply supple, these sheets have got you covered. 

Best Budget: Quince Organic Bamboo Viscose Sheet Set

Best Budget

Bamboo Viscose Sheet Set, Quince

$229 $109

Sizes: Twin, full, queen, king, and California king | Return policy: Within 365 days | Care: Machine-wash cold

What we like:

  • Almost unbelievably soft 
  • Retain all the benefits of bamboo with the feeling of silk 
  • Easy to care for

Worth noting:

  • Quick to wrinkle

Why we chose it: We won’t blame you if you’re tricked into thinking this set is made of silk.

This set of Quince sheets veers so far into the silky-soft realm that it would be easy to confuse them for actual silk. They’re not, though. This set, which gets a serious thumbs-up from our tester, boasts all the benefits of bamboo sheets (like being hypoallergenic and having temperature-regulating abilities) with the luxurious feeling of silk. Win-win. Note: Our tester warns that the sheets are a bit wrinkly upon first opening, but you can combat that with a gentle wash and by taking them out of the dryer immediately. 

Best Cotton-Bamboo Blend: The Company Store Bamboo Sateen Sheet Set

Best Cotton

Bamboo Sateen Sheet Set, Queen, The Company Store

$209 $146
Shop Now

Sizes: Twin, twin XL, full, queen, and king | Return policy: Within 90 days | Care: Machine-wash cold

What we like:

  • The cotton-bamboo combo brings out the best features of both fabrics
  • Available in a variety of sizes and colors
  • Includes the option to monogram

Worth noting:

  • Fits mattresses up to 16 inches high, so they’re not pillow-top–friendly 

Why we chose it: Enjoy the breathability of cotton and the softness of bamboo in one sheet set. 

If you’re not ready to let go of a long-standing cotton sheets habit—we understand!—compromise with this soft-as-can-be cotton-bamboo blend. Our tester attests to their butteriness, which gets even softer after a few washes and more than a few nights’ rest. There’s a five-star-hotel–like luxury to these sheets. (Minus the room service, but plus the comforts of home.) They are smooth without being slippery and somehow always look and feel fresh, if you’re procrastinating doing laundry. 

How We Chose These Products

We would never underestimate the power of sleep. We’d never underestimate the power of a good sheet set either. Knowing those two are closely connected, we thoughtfully tested these bamboo sheets to give you our honest opinion on the best sets. They all had to come from reputable brands, include a reasonable return policy, and be ultra-easy to care for. An Oprah endorsement doesn’t hurt either. 

Our Shopping Checklist

Material and Weave

We read the material makeup of these sets carefully. Bamboo sets are often made of rayon, viscose, or Lyocell, all of which are derived from bamboo fibers, and we wanted to represent each of these options. Don’t overlook the weave either. A sateen weave has a silky feel with a slight sheen and is tough at resisting wrinkles. A percale weave, on the other hand, is more wrinkle-prone but offers a crisp, lightweight feel some prefer. 

Breathability

One of the biggest perks of bamboo is its top-notch breathability, and our picks had to live up to this standard. They also had to be moisture wicking for the hot sleepers among us. So long, night sweats!

Ease of Care

Even though bamboo is more delicate than, say, cotton, the care for each of these sets is supereasy: Machine-wash them with cold water, then gently tumble dry. As long as you keep them away from a hot washing or drying cycle, they should serve you well for years to come.

Ask Domino

Q: What are bamboo sheets made from?

At the heart of bamboo sheets is, of course, bamboo. The stalks are harvested into small pieces, processed into a pulp, and then put through a chemical process to become yarn. Not all bamboo sheets are created equal, though. The full makeup of bamboo sheets varies widely by brand and often includes Lyocell, rayon, or viscose that are all derived from bamboo fibers. 

Q: Are bamboo sheets eco-friendly?

The eco-friendliness of bamboo sheets is a touchy topic. Bamboo itself is considered sustainable, since it grows quickly, doesn’t require fertilizer, and self-regenerates from its own roots. But there’s more to the story.

“Even though bamboo is considered a green option, the most commonly used methods for manufacturing bamboo sheets include processes and products that can have an outsize environmental impact,” says Byron Golub, director of product and merchandising for bedding company Saatva. “Think: chemical-laden wastewater.” That process? Not so eco-friendly. So it’s important to always do your homework. 

Q: Are bamboo sheets cooling?

Yes! Bamboo sheets’ ability to keep you cool is one of its biggest advantages over other fabrics. On average, bamboo sheets stay two or three degrees cooler than cotton sheets throughout the night. They’re quick to wick away moisture, too, so no more sweaty bedhead in the morning. 

Q: How do I wash and care for bamboo sheets? 

Always refer to the care instructions for the specific sheets you buy. If you’ve lost or cut out the tag, scan the brand’s website—you should find care recommendations there. In general, most bamboo sheets are machine washable in cold water; you can tumble dry on a gentle cycle. When cared for properly, bamboo sheets can stay in tip-top shape for up to 15 years. 

The Last Word

As much as we love cotton and linen bedding, there are serious upsides to bamboo sheets: They are ideal for sensitive skin, keep you cool at night, and are silky soft, to boot. Our advice? Make room in your linen closet for a set of each.
