What is the difference between bamboo lyocell, viscose, and rayon?
First of all, we must acknowledge that bamboo lyocell and rayon are made from the cellulose of plants and undergo several chemical processes. At the same time, viscose is a type of rayon made from bamboo viscose. Secondly, bamboo rayon is highly absorbent and easy to dye while bamboo viscose looks like silk and feels like cotton. Yet bamboo lyocell is both soft and smooth and they are highly similar looking to the actual bamboo. Both rayon and viscose are manufactured in approximately the same process involving different chemicals, yet they differ in materials used (cellulose and viscose, accordingly). While bamboo rayon can be made with bamboo grass cellulose, viscose is made from its pulp. Bamboo rayon is a more delicate product in comparison because it is made with caustic soda (sodium hydroxide). This will not be present in the end product. All three textiles are hypoallergenic, silky-soft and bacteria resistant.
All three textiles (viscose, rayon and lyocell) are perfect materials to purchase for household items such as bedsheets, towels, mattress covers, blankets, and many others for the ultimate user experience.
With the production of bamboo sheets, it is important to make sure your sheets are certified to be chemical free as the end product. Snoozy Monk Bamboo Sheets are certified Oeko-Tex, meaning the sheets we deliver will not have any harmful chemicals for your skin.
Is bamboo softer than a cotton sheet?
Now, if we have to be completely honest, the bamboo material reveals more benefits, in general, compared to the ones which are made out of cotton. While Pima and Egyptian cotton are of extraordinary quality, they are just two types to consider – they are far from being the mass-market kind of bed sheet.
With this in mind, bamboo sheets are also far more environmentally friendly in comparison to their cotton counterparts which is something that you’d also want to consider.

What is the best fabric for people with allergies?
Bamboo fabrics has an extremely soft texture that is naturally soothing to your skin, but it also possesses high breathability thanks to its organic fibres. This high level of breathability is a definite bonus to those who live in humid climates or just sleep hot on a nightly basis. The breathability found in bamboo sheets ensures that your body heat will not be trapped in the bedding with you and allows you to enjoy a moisture-free sleep and wake rested for the day ahead.
Bamboo is also a plant material that is naturally moisture-resistant, which leads many people to call these sheets hypoallergenic. If moisture cannot be trapped in the sheets with you, then bacteria or parasites have a harder time to form and develop. A lack of bacteria and parasites will automatically help with a healthy lifestyle, as respiratory problems or skin conditions are not irritated by your bedsheets.
