Towards the end of last year I got my hands on a set of bamboo bed linen from Peony Living and have been meaning to tell you about it ever since. Sadly, the Christmas rush took over and I can’t quite believe that I am only getting around to this now… (insert all the shameful emojis here).
Now it has to be said that I am a bit of a linen snob, so I was somewhat skeptical when I first laid eyes on this off-white bamboo newcomer, but as soon as I got a feel of this fabric’s texture, I was instantly sold. It has an incredibly soft, satin-like character but without the obvious shine.
Having done a bit of research, I’ve come to know that bamboo bed sheets have an impressive list of accolades. This particular collection is made from 300 thread count of sateen bamboo. The luxuriously silky-smooth fabric is manufactured from an eco-friendly source and contains naturally occurring antibacterial properties (no chemicals or dyes are used either) making it ideal for infants, kids and people with allergies. Bamboo also helps maintain the body’s ideal temperature making you feel cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter – and it’s moisture wicking ability is great for people with night sweats. Who knew?
The Peony Living brand isn’t just about bed linen – the range offers a selection of bath towels and the most amazingly soft throws. I can tell you how fabulous these products are until I’m blue in the face, but you really have to feel the textures in order to fully appreciate their quality. I’ve been using my new set of bamboo bed linen for over two months now and I am a huge fan. I was ever so slightly deterred by the off-white, almost ivory colour at first, but I can confirm with conference that the colour fades with washing and is perfectly white.
My only gripe about this brand would be that it doesn’t yet include a range of linen for kids, but I suspect we won’t have to wait too long for that.
