Cariloha Bamboo sheets continue to attract customers seeking the best in naturally luxurious linens. Not only are they softer than other natural and synthetic fabrics, but they also keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer thanks to bamboo’s inherent thermal-regulating properties. They’re extremely helpful for people who suffer from night sweats, skin irritations or sensitivities. If that wasn’t enough, bamboo sheets and towels are odor resistant and good for the environment, too. But, don’t take our word for it…

Cariloha Bamboo Sheets
By Adventures of Mommyhood
While it’s not MY job to tell you what should be included in your bedroom or nighttime routine, I do feel compelled to let you know what goes on between MY sheets these days….
Such. Amazing. Sleep. Wow.
I thought I was going to have to make a continuation of my series that was “Flippin’ in Flakes” or something. I felt like we’d never be sleeping in our own, new bed in our own new house. Let alone sleeping so well! We’re there now. It all started.
While we were strolling down the street in Juneau, Alaska this summer and my son was on a “scavenger hunt for treasures,” one of the ways we found FREE fun in cruise towns. All those coupons for trinkets that get you in to stores make fantastic treasures for kids and a great afternoon of family fun wandering around town! Well, during one of our stops, the task was to “feel the difference” between your run-of-the-mill cotton sheets, nicer Egyptian cotton sheets, and Bamboo sheets. WOW.
The moment that my fingertips grazed the bamboo sheets I knew I needed one day to roll around and dream sweet dreams on this textile. It was cool to the touch, soft as the best “lovies” and cuddle blankets, but also light and I wanted to experience more! Where were we? We were exiting the Cariloha store in the downtown area of Franklin Street.
Caribbean style + Hawaiian aloha = pure bliss!
So naturally, a few months later while planning my Flippin’ for Fall Series, I wanted to find a few unique embellishments, if you will, that can take a ho-hum room to the next level and make it a special, cozy, amazing space in your home. I don’t have a budget like the HGTV shows, so I had to be creative and write realistically, since most of us do not have that kind of monetary freedom! That meant cozy as it might be, I wouldn’t be including a jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom plans.
This goal could however be accomplished with some pieces that were plush, lux accessories but were also functional items that one would use and could afford to implement into a room design. Those perfect few items included bamboo sheets, a luxurious towel set, and even a little extra bonus for mom and all her hard work: cozy socks!
I washed the sheets that had a bit of a vinegar-esque smell from in the new package and they were incredibly quick drying. They do wrinkle easily, but for me being really pregnant wrestling with king-size anything could do just as much damage as a dryer! So, pardon a few wrinkles, I ironed the set once, very carefully with a slightly damp towel barrier – you do have to treat these nicely, low heat, wash on cold or cool, etc. But they come out feeling wonderful and are easy to care for. I love that they are cool to the touch, since I’m always warm. I am constantly flipping my pillow to take advantage of the “cool side.” Even in the dead of winter. So the combination of bamboo sheets and a down comforter make the ultimate pairing!
The bamboo sheets are smooth and soft, silky against your legs and arms. I was hesitant to use them on our “family bed” — but with pull ups and the mattress protector, I guess there is only so much we can do! We’re taking the chance since these linens are too good to pass up! The colors are zen, calming. We chose Sage, but there is also a light blue and a neutral color. They are a tad slippery — which I love! I was able to get a nice, snug fit on the mattress and they are true to size.
Cariloha is a one-stop shop for all things soft, sustainable and stunning for home, bath, and even your own body! We have a king-size bed now that acts as our family bed for now, though the kids room does have bunk beds that are occasionally used, and we have a full-size bed in our guest/dad room. Yes, my husband gets the boot sometimes (usually self-imposed) so that he can get more sleep before work!
We can now feel like we are treating our guests to an experience akin to a Hilton or Sandals (at least with the offering of our linens and bathroom textiles!) That is where the resort experience usually ends, with the appearance of crazy tots and park playdates…but…for a few glimmering moments, they might be expecting that instead of a drooling kiddo coming through the door, it could be housekeeping or a spa attendant!
