One of the best bamboo sheets for thicker mattresses is Maloof’s woven bamboo bed sheets. These sheets are comfortable in their own right but what sets them apart is the Universal fit that they have. They have super-deep full-length elastic pockets, and they’re sewn well, so you don’t have to worry about this sheet coming off from your thick mattress. On top of that, they have an oversized flat sheet, so you have plenty of room to tuck in your flat sheet, and you don’t have to worry about kicking it out at night.
Having put the product to the test, in this Malouf bamboo sheets review, we will tell you everything about the sheets, from their size to overall performance on the bed, the material, the maintenance, and other features.
Here, we will review the sheets, considering aspects such as the overall performance, the colors and sizes available, the material, weave, fit, maintenance, durability and warranty, the hypoallergenic features, price tag, among other features.
The Malouf bamboo sheets are made from 100% rayon from bamboo, and the pack comes with two pillowcases, one flat sheet, and one fitted sheet. It has the extra unique quality, an oversized flat sheet, and oversized pillowcases, so it is really easy to make the bed. You will have extra fabric just to tuck underneath the mattress.
It was silky soft, very easy to drape on the bed, and it had no breathability or odor issues. There were no issues with it trapping any heat or cold air. They give you a very comfortable, easy sleep.
There is one thing to note about these sheets. Typically, bamboo sheets are so silky soft, but they’re also very prone to wrinkling, and these sheets, unfortunately, are no exception to that.
Another little downside about the pillowcases is the shape. We wished that the pillow was more of a standard shape and not oversized. The bedsheets and pillowcases are not for people who have little time to pay close attention to the sheets when they’re in the washer and dryer. It is also not for those who have no time to air dry, line dry, and iron them.
For some reason, the pillowcase gets wrinkled very heavily. However, we found the sheets to be comfortable to sleep in. We loved the color; it is beautiful and very silky soft. We think the big con for us is just the intensive care instructions and need to make sure that you followed them to the tee to avoid the level of wrinkles that it comes with. Many don’t have time to iron their sheets or to line dry them. We would prefer something a little bit easier to care for, and that is a big one for many users.
The Malouf bamboo sheets are available in eight size options. You can choose from the twin, split head California King, California King, King, Split Head Queen, Queen, Full, and Twin XL sizes.
The fitted sheet fits a standard 60 by 80 queen mattress, but it has something called the Universal Fit. This basically means that it has this extra strong elastic in the deep pocket. So, it can fit mattresses up to 22 inches thick.
The bed sheets are made from 100% rayon from bamboo. Bamboo rayon fabrics are known for helping you to keep cool and dry. During summertime, it helps you keep cool by wicking moisture away from you. Also, the twill weave of the material helps it recover quickly from wrinkles.
It feels so silky soft, is very easy to drape on the bed, and it has no breathability or odor issues. However, we will say though it has a sort of a chemically heavy smell. So, when you first get them so make sure you wash them first. We had no problems after that.
The Malouf bamboo bedsheets have a twill weave. Twill is a type of textile fabric with a diagonal parallel rib pattern.
Fabrics based on a twill weave have one right side and one backside, but on the other hand, have neither top nor bottom. The fact that twill fabrics are made of less crisscross than plain weave fabrics means that they are less wrinkle-resistant than the latter. On the other hand, with the same count, a plain weave bed sheet would be stronger than a twill weave fabric due to a greater number of interlocking.
These sheets are comfortable in their own right but what sets them apart is the Universal fit that they have. One of the things we liked about these sheets is the oversized flat sheet. It was so easy to tuck the fabric. And we had no problem with it coming out at night.
To maintain the sheets, you can machine wash them. However, line drying or air drying a twin set of sheets, as recommended by the manufacturer, will be impossible for those in a small apartment. While you can tumble dry them, you are supposed to take them out when slightly damp to avoid more wrinkling.
But you may have a hard time going back and forth trying to find exactly when the sheets were in soaking wet condition and when they were damp. However, the most intense wrinkling was actually on the pillowcases. For some reason, the edges get very wrinkly. However, for some people who have the maintenance time (line dry and iron them), they get a lot of enjoyment out of it.
We liked the number of color options these sheets are obtainable. You can choose from its wide range of color options which include: white, ivory, citron, rain, driftwood, and ash. However, the price of the bedsheets varies, depending on the elegance provided by the color. Still, this is a great thing as you can choose a color that matches your home decor.
Derived from a natural material, the sheets have no issues with sensitive skin. Bamboo rayon is hypoallergenic and porous. They are thermoregulatory and helps you sleep cool during hot seasons and sleep warm in colder seasons. We liked the breathability of the sheets.
With proper maintenance, the bedsheets will be extremely durable. The colors will stay more vivid. They are more durable than cotton sheets but require more detailed maintenance. You can wash them with warm or cold water and air dry them. However, if you need to tumble dry them, do so on low heat.
The sheets retail on Amazon’s website for $130 to around $200. You can find them for a similar price range on Malouf Home. The prices vary by color, but there are discounts. We think if you can get them for a discount, then they would be worth considering again.
Some of the most important features of the bamboo sheets are:
In quality, feel, and comfort, these are hands down the best sheets for thicker mattresses. You wouldn’t get overly hot or cold at night; that is, the sheets are thermoregulatory. However, you need to take into consideration how much time you’re going to have to care for them. And if you hate wrinkles, then you may need to iron these, so all those things are worth thinking about.
However, if you have time for their maintenance, they offer a lot of benefits. They are made from hypoallergenic and breathable material and are perfect for those with allergies, those who sleep hot, and those with sensitive skin.
