If you read our last article you’d know I really like the many uses of bamboo. Well, upon moving to Vegas I learned very fast that the type of bedding that you sleep in between really does make a difference when it comes to the city’s extreme weather. It was in the high 90’s when I first moved here and within a month or so it had reached as high as 114 degrees.
Yes, you read that right. Ninety plus degrees.
For most when coming to Las Vegas it’s usually for a conference, convention, concert, eloping, gambling, vacation, attend a Strip attraction… anything (reason) is possible when it comes to Sin City. Whatever the reason, when coming here many forget that its actually a city where locals live. In the desert. Where it gets extremely HOT during the summer, air conditioning is a must and its hard to cuddle with your lover for more than a few minutes without becoming stuck together from each others sweat.
As I had initially purchased sheets that went along with the décor of the bedroom; white and winter green, but I knew there had to be sheets that could make sleep more comfortable with less tossing and turning.
First, bamboo bedding is even softer than cotton.
Keep in mind that there are two kinds of bamboo sheets, some that are mixed with other materials, and the other which is made of 100% premium bamboo.
I was shopping with my partner at the Fantastic Swap Meet when a man at a kiosk got our attention. I honestly wasn’t interest, but my partner walked over to learn more. They were selling the bamboo sheets that I told my partner we should purchase a month prior. I then remembered when I first discovered this type of bedding I did do some research on them.
With him remembering that I wanted them, I asked the sales man if the bedding that was being sold was 100% bamboo. He replied that the ones he had on display were not, BUT he could order some luxury bamboo sheets to be shipped to our home. He had a swatch for us to select a color and feel the texture. Right then we decided to go ahead and purchase them.
Bamboo sheet’s will bring you comfort in any climate.
Sleeping between them is so comfortable! In fact they are cool, durable, ultra soft & silky – hypoallergenic might I add. Looking online through Google’s shopping part of their search engine, and at Bed, Bath and Beyond, I did discover that bamboo sheets are such good quality that their prices ranged from the low $100 (on sale) and as high as $240.
Above is a picture of the sheets that we received in the mail. Though they cost more than the previous sheets that I would find at Ross for $16.99 – $48.00, they are totally worth it living here in Vegas. Sheets that are cool in the summer and comfortable during winter is a must for living here.
Fact: Las Vegas gets really hot during the summer and very cold during the winter.
In fact it snowed about a month ago and locals were taken aback!
As always, thank you for reading!
