Sweet Zzz Bamboo Sheets Review
Sweet Zzz is known for its natural organic beddings. Having been in the market for a long period, the company has managed to create the perfect beddings with just the right balance of all the right features.
Bamboo sheets from this company have been carefully made with 100% GOT fully certified bamboo viscose.
That boasts of 400 thread count, one of the highest for bamboo sheets.
The sheets are silky smooth, highly breathable, temperature-regulating, hypoallergenic, and durable. And the price is just right. Here are some of the things you need to consider, though, when purchasing these sheets.
What is the Construction?
Type of Bamboo Used
Bamboo fiber is usually derived from two types of bamboo; natural or organic bamboo. Organic is always the best. Organic bamboo means that the bamboo was grown without the use of chemicals. Sweet Zzz Bamboo Sheets are 100% organic bamboo.
Bamboo sheets can also be made with viscose or bamboo rayon. Viscose feels softer and silkier but this also makes it more expensive.
Bamboo viscose has various appealing properties that make it suitable for beddings. It is thermo-regulating, antibacterial, and moisture-wicking.
Sweet Zzz sheets are made from bamboo viscose. We found them cool during hot nights and warmer on cool nights. The soft silky feel brought about by the sateen weave also made these sheets very comfortable and pleasant to sleep on.
The thread count of a bed sheet is a huge factor to be considered. It simply means the number of threads woven in a square inch of fabric.
The higher the thread count, the finer the threads used, and the tighter the weave. This makes the finished product much softer, smoother, and stronger.
Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets have the highest quality thread count a bamboo sheet can have, a 400TC.
Being organic viscose bamboo with a 400 thread count, there is little to nothing that Sweet Zzz can improve on to make these sheets better.
How are the Feel, Softness, and Comfort?
These sheets are surprisingly soft and cozy. The use of sateen weave on these sheets produces a silky-smooth luxurious feel. A sateen weave is a method that floats warp yarns over weft yarns by spinning four threads over one under.
This leads to a high number of floats on the surface producing a smooth soft flat surface. This flat surface creates the sheen and soft feel that makes these sheets look and feel like silk sheets.
We think it’s because of this weave design that Sweet Zzz sheets look and feel more luxurious than even 1000 TC 5 star Egyptian cotton sheets.
With this structure also, if properly maintained, these sheets should last a long time and maintain the same comfortable feel.
Does it Sleep Cool or Warm?
One of the biggest reasons people are turning to bamboo sheets is because of how cool this type of sheet sleeps. Organic bamboo sheets have thermoregulating capabilities.
This means they can quickly adapt to your body’s temperature and they keep cool in summer and warm during winter
Bamboo sheets are a good asset for people who struggle with overheating and sweating.
These sheets are moisture-wicking and can absorb 40% more water than any normal cotton sheets.
This means that when you sweat, they easily absorb the sweat leaving you dry, cool, and comfortable.
Bamboo sheets are also highly pliable which means that they bend easily. This makes them drape very close to your skin thus absorbing away moisture easily and faster. This generally makes bamboo sheets the best cooling sheets available in the market.
Our tests of Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets confirmed the same. We didn’t sleep warm during the tests.
Is This Product Healthy to Use?
Absolutely, Sweet Zzz has GOTS and OEKO-TEX certifications of safety. Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard. This certification ensures that the fabrics used are organic and that the supply chain is also organic.
Sweet Zzz says their sheets are organic because no chemical was used during their production and they have the GOTS certification to prove it.
They have also been tested by OEKO-TEX, a worldwide fabric testing company. This company tests products rigorously for any harmful chemicals for human use.
You can only get the certification if your products are found completely free from these harmful chemicals. Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets boast of OEKO-TEX certification.
Bamboo sheets promote hygiene and good health. They are the best sheets to use for sensitive skin and for allergies. They are well ventilated and have amazing antibacterial properties.
The antibacterial properties block the growth of any bacteria. Due to their natural antibacterial and antifungal properties, bamboo sheets do not need any pesticides as they are never infected by pathogens nor attacked by pests. This product is therefore safe and healthy to use even on sensitive skin.
How Durable is It?
Bamboo sheets are some of the most durable bed sheets in the market. They often last over a decade with minimal wear. Sweet Zzz organic 400TC, sateen weave sheet combines the best features for strength and durability.
As such Sweet Zzz believes that their sheets can last longer than even other bamboo sheets in the market. They are so confident about this that they offer a lifetime warranty on the sheets.
One of the main secrets to bamboo sheets durability is that they are stitched using long fibers instead of short fibers.
The long fibers add more strength to the sheets which makes it very hard to tear or rip. Even when used daily with regular washing, these sheets still stay free from tears and rips.
However, the durability of any sheet will always be determined by the maintenance. If a sheet is properly maintained, then its lifespan is extended.
What Are The Available Colors and Sizes?
Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets come in 3 different colors with more colors being added periodically. The white, silver and light blue color sheets are neutral enough to pair well with just about any décor.
They have a nice luster and come in the 6 standard sizes. You have the option of Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and Cal King sizes. The split–king option is available only with the white color option.
A sheet set includes:
- 1 flat sheet
- 1 fitted sheet and
- 2 pillowcases
The fitted sheet can fit from 6 to 14 inches of mattress depth. It has an elastic band along its edges that helps the fitted sheet fit the mattress just right.
Does it Have Good Value, is it Worth the Price?
Without a doubt, bamboo sheets are of great value because of their durability and cooling benefit.
When compared to other bamboo sheets in the market like the 400TC viscose Cariloha which is not organic certified and costs $100 more, Sweet Zzz is more affordable and offers more.
Considering the fact that you may never replace them in a decade or more, you can conclude that what you get with Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets is value for your money.
Even though the price may be higher than that of normal sheets in the market, you are guaranteed many more benefits. Sweet Zzz sheets are cooling, luxurious, soft, durable, and safe. As such, they are worth the price, and their value is great.
How is the Return Policy and Sleep Trial?
Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets come with a 50-night free trial. After trying out their sheets and you find that you really don’t like them or they are not a good fit.
You can contact the company for a full refund. The best thing is that you do not have to pay for any shipment. Both shipping and return shipping is 100% free.
The only requirement is that the sheets should be in the same condition as when they were bought. They should not have stains, smells, or any kind of damage.
How Does The Warranty Work?
Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets come with a non-prorated lifetime warranty. What this means is that anytime the sheets have faults that are beyond natural wear and tear with proper use.
Then the company will replace or repair them at no extra cost. The warranty does not cover normal wear and tear. And is only applicable to manufacturer’s defects.
Benefits of the Sweet Zzz Bamboo Sheets?
When shopping for new bed-sheets, the number one interest is usually comfort. Bamboo sheets have a very soft feel that surpasses that of cotton.
They’re also very breathable which means that they don’t trap heat, helping you sleep cool. Sweet Zzz bedsheets have a very soft feel due to their sateen weave. They sleep cool and are very comfortable for different seasons.
Naturally antibacterial and Hypo-allergenic
Organic bamboo beddings are naturally antibacterial and hypoallergenic. The bamboo plant has a natural chemical that keeps bugs and pestilence away.
This property is transferred to bamboo sheets. This helps keep dust mites and other bugs off your bed. Bamboo sheets also prevent allergies by significantly reducing moisture, which aids in the growth of mold.
Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets are stitched from long fibers that are not easily broken. This makes the sheets strong and less susceptible to ripping and tearing. Though bamboo sheets are naturally absorbent, they do not absorb the oil.
This keeps them from yellowing and graying overtime. Most bamboo sheets last longer than a decade. Sweet Zzz is confident that their sheets last even longer than other bamboo sheets because they are organic viscose, with a 400 TC.
Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets are quite affordable for the features they offer. Look at it this way, when you buy a pair of bamboo sheets, it can last you for more than ten years.
On the other hand, you would have bought 10 or more pairs of different sheets at the same time. This can easily cost you four to five times more.
Bamboo is sustainable
As per the handbook of natural fibers; bamboo fiber is the most renewable biomass material that is fit for use in textiles. The reason why bamboo fiber is considered sustainable is that it is a resource that can be quickly renewed. It also has numerous eco-friendly properties.
Bamboo is known to be pest-resistant which means that it does not need poisonous pesticides unlike cotton needs a lot of pesticides.
Bamboo grows rapidly when compared to other fibers and requires very little water to grow. After the bamboo is chopped down during harvesting, it regrows in no time. This means that there is no need for replanting. All this makes bamboo sustainable and even eco-friendly.
After trying and testing Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets, we found the sheets luxuriously soft and cool. These are also hypoallergenic, durable, and great for sensitive skin. For their price, these sheets are value-for-money and meant to last.
These sheets are available in three beautiful calming colors with a variety of colors coming up in production. They are available in twin sizes, twin xl, full size, queen size, king size, and Cal-king.
Sweet Zzz also comes with a lifetime warranty, a 50-night free trial, and an amazing return policy.
With all the benefits that Sweet Zzz bamboo sheets have to offer, these are great sheets to have in one’s bedroom.
