Shopping for household items is every homemaker’s fancy. People love to shop in the retail market as well as online stores. They are very skeptical while buying products, as everybody likes to get full value for money. The most important purchase that a homemaker is conscious about, of course besides kitchenware, is bed and bath linen.
Of the whole count of 24 hours per day, one spends a good 7-8 hours for a good night’s sleep and maybe another hour or so for an afternoon siesta. So technically, one spends around 9-10 hours in bed per day. A good, sound sleep is essential to rejuvenate your body and mind. That is a vital base for your next day’s performance, as a relaxed body has a good potential for work output.
If one has to get a peaceful sleep at night, then the bed has to be comfortable too in order to induce good sleep. Thus, choice of bed sheets is of prime importance and needs careful selection. Bamboo Sheets Australia offers the trendiest bed linen and has a good stock of the bamboo bed sheets.
Besides traditional cotton sheets, the new trend demands safe and soft bamboo sheets. Bamboo is a natural plant and when grown organically without any pesticides, etc. it adds up to the value of the product made out of it. Hence, bamboo bed sheets are very safe to use, especially for babies too and are longer lasting. Bamboo sheets are available in normal as well as high thread count. Thread count implies the number of strands of the fibre woven horizontally as well as vertically, per square inch of the fabric. Thus, a thread count of 200 would mean that there are 100 horizontal and 100 vertical stands woven per square inch.
Higher the thread count, softer and denser the fabric is. However, ideal thread count for normal temperatures would be 200-400. Nonetheless, a thread count of 300 or higher would be used in colder places as this gives more warmth. Bamboo sheets are breathable and have the characteristic of thermal control. This gives utmost comfort to the sleeper, as it balances the temperature and keeps you cool during summer and warm and cozy during winter. Bamboo fibres are natural fibres and therefore they tend to shrink when subjected to high heat. So care should be taken to wash the sheets in cold water using a mild detergent and then line dried, or tumble- dried on low temperature.
Another property of bamboo is that being natural and organic, it is anti-bacterial. This makes it totally safe for use, as there is no threat of skin allergies or rashes. Babies feel comfortable and cozy on a bamboo bed sheet since it is soft and smooth against their delicate skin.
Bamboo bed sheets are available in 3 sizes – double, queen and king. Each set comprises of a fitted sheet, a flat sheet and 2 pillow covers. There is a good variety of solid and pastel colours to choose from. You can also choose between twill weave sheet and sateen sheet. Twill weave has a closer weave and denser, with smaller strands. It is soft and comfortable. Sateen sheets, on the other hand, are made from longer strands that are smoother and softer. This makes the sheets way softer and luxurious.
