If you, like me, tend to crank the AC year round to avoid waking up in a puddle of sweat, consider this a public service announcement. There is a better way that will save you time, energy and, er, your electricity bill. Enter: bamboo sheets.
Check out a few of the best bamboo sheets, tested by reviewers and WH editors:
Similar to cotton, bamboo is an all-natural material that is breathable and soft, says Liz Barbatelli, a fine linens expert, stylist, and owner of E. Braun & Co. But, unlike cotton, bamboo sheets are often more cooling, since the material traps less heat. Not to mention, bamboo grows much faster than other natural fibers (up to 2.91 feet a day, in fact), making it a more sustainable choice. In addition to being temperature-regulating and moisture-wicking, bamboo is also naturally hypoallergenic, meaning it's ideal for sensitive skin. Read: You'll wake up feeling refreshed from head to toe.
Ready to make the switch and enjoy a more comfortable night's sleep? Ahead, the 10 best bamboo sheets to shop right now:
Bamboo Sheet Set
Cozy Earth's bamboo sheets are a favorite among Women's Health editors and, uh, Oprah (!) for a reason. Made from 100 percent premium bamboo-derived viscose, these cooling, moisture-wicking sheets will have you wanting to stay in bed all morning.
Editor Review: "Cozy Earth's products are all so soft and comfy, but I especially love their bamboo sheets. As a hot sleeper, I struggle to find sheets that will keep me warm and cozy without making me too hot and sweaty, and I've found these to be perfect for temperature regulation. I also love their soothing color!" –Lydia Wang, love and life editor
Linen+ Sheet Set
Another WH editor favorite, this sheet set from sustainable home brand Ettitude is perfect for anyone who loves the look and feel of linen bedding. The material is their "take on linen sheets" made from a blend of bamboo and hemp, which is 99.9 percent antimicrobial and more eco-friendly. With these sheets on your bed, you're bound to wake up feeling rejuvenated and ready to tackle the day.
Editor Review: "I've never owned bamboo sheets until I got these, and they've officially turned me into a convert. First of all, they're super lightweight, so they keep you cool if you're a hot sleeper like me. Second of all, they're not crunchy or hard like many linen blends can be, so they always feel welcoming and soft whenever you hop into bed. I also love that they're hypoallergenic, so they're gentle on sensitive skin." –Lily Wohlner, associate commerce editor
The Regulator Sheet Set
Made from high-grade bamboo rayon, these temperature-regulating sheets (it's in the name, duh) are perfect for any hot (er, temperature-wise) sleepers. WH editors love them for their cooling effect and super soft feel.
Editor Reviews: "I'm so obsessed with these sheets that I actually have two sets that I keep on rotation. They're moisture-wicking, and super soft, too. I love how durable and easy to clean they are. My dog even loves curling up in these sheets!" –Lindsay Geller, lifestyle director
"I usually sleep hot, even in the winter, so I love that these regulate my temp to keep me cool. Plus, they’re soft and uber comfy to wrap yourself in." –Jasmine Gomez, commerce editor
Bamboo Sheet Set
Sleep luxuriously with this organic bamboo bed sheet set from Quince. Crafted with 100 percent bamboo-derived viscose—a temperature-regulating fabric—these sheets will support a better night's rest, especially if you're a warm sleeper (uh, raises hand). They're hypoallergenic, too, making them a great choice for those with sensitive skin.
Rave Review: "I plan to buy these sheets in multiple colors, that’s how much I swear by them. They’re cooling and quick drying (if you sweat or spill), the silky feeling is absolutely luxe, you truly cannot go wrong. They look far more expensive than they are. The only drawback is that they wrinkle fairly easily, but worth it IMO!"
Named "Most Comfortable Bamboo Sheets" by SleepFoundation.org, this eco-friendly bedding from family owned and operated brand Simply Organic Bamboo are a must-have! As the name implies, they're made of organically-grown bamboo, which has a luxe buttery-soft feel on your skin. (Ahem, might even need five alarms to wake you up in the morning because you'll be that ~cozy~.)
Rave Review: "I have three sets of these sheets and they are perfect in every way. I have a deep mattress and the fitted sheet always stays put, they keep me cool at night, they are super soft and non-toxic, too. What more could you ask for?!"
If you want the luxury of bamboo sheets without the luxury pricing, try this set from Hotel Sheets Direct. With over 22,000 (!) five-star ratings on Amazon, it's no secret these are a crowd favorite.

Rave Review: "I can honestly state that, having purchased bamboo sheets over the last 10 years, these are by far the softest of all my previous purchases..."
Bamboo Sateen Bed Sheet Set
These highly-rated, bamboo-derived rayon sheets are breathable, soft to the touch, and made to last. They're so great, in fact, that multiple customers have invested in second, and even, third (!) pairs. You'll surely sleep soundly in this pillow-soft sheet set. Uh, thank me later.
Rave Review: "We bought a set of these awhile [sic] ago and they held up so beautifully that we got a second set. They aged well, got softer with time and have withstood both babies and dogs hard use."
Organic Bamboo Sheets
These 100 percent organic sheets made from bamboo-derived rayon are super soft, cooling, oh, and not to mention, a great price. Customers love them because they're super silky and do not pill! Pro: You'll comfortably sleep throughout the night. Con: You may or may not have trouble leaving your bed in the morning—sorry, not sorry.
Rave Review: "These are the best sheets I’ve ever slept on. I stayed at an Airbnb and my friend and I both went crazy over the sheets on the bed and we had to find out what they were. It was CozyLux. As soon as I got home from my trip I ordered them. They are so silky and smooth. Softest sheets ever!"
Cooling Bamboo Sheet Set

Rave Review: "I bought three different sets of bamboo sheets at the same time. After several months of trying them all out, I can honestly say that I will only buy this brand from now on. They are very soft and cool. Just ordered a set for the guest room."
