Slightly More Efficient: Target Begins Selling Bamboo Sheets and Towels

main.jpgTarget has begun selling bamboo sheets and towels. They are reasonably priced at $40 for a sheet set, and $20 for two towels. Unfortunately, the bamboo content is not all that high — 60% for the sheets and 40% for the towels, and the rest of the fabric is conventional cotton (which requires large amounts of pesticides to grow). Organic cotton or hemp fiber would have been more efficient.

    My mother gave me the bamboo sheets as a gift for my birthday. They’re quite comfortable. I would have really preferred 100% bamboo, but they were cheap enough not to quibble. My only issue is that they came in pastel colors that I normally wouldn’t have chosen.

    I got my 100% bamboo fiber 250tc linens from Elegant Linens by Anna Rose. All I can say is wow! The bottom sheet is very deep, the fabric silky and cool. I bought one set, then bought two more. What a relief to finally find the perfect bamboo sheets. I ordered the bamboo bed cover & shams, too!

    I also bought the organic bamboo sheets from Target and they are total crap. I used them for two months before they started to pill up. I’ve been emailing back and forth with customer service and so far no resolution. Their return policy is awful. The worst in the industry and they won’t take responsibility for selling shoddy products.

    THIS IS SILLY BAMBOO IS NOT MORE EFFICIENT IT USES JUST AS MUCH WATER TO GROW AND THE CHEMICALS THEY USE TO SOFTEN THE BAMBOO ARE JUST AS POISONOUS AS COTTON!!!!!!!!!!!

    If you want bamboo sheets go with the best, for my money it is hands down sleepbamboo.com.

    have tried these walmart taget bamboo items, no the best, you get what you pay for.

    Its not the amount of bamboo in the product, its a lot more, like yarn quality and yarn size.

    Also the way they weave and finish the fabric, they can do bamboo in a heavy twill that is much much cheaper than a sateen, sleepbamboo does a sateen weave, it is the softest.

    Hope this helps ya all!
