Bamboo blankets - reviews: cons? Pros?
Recently, a new product has appeared on the domestic bedding market, previously available only on the Internet, on foreign sites. This is a bamboo blanket , reviews of which are few and contradictory. In order to understand whether it is worth buying a bamboo blanket, it makes sense to consider it in more detail, after weighing all the advantages and disadvantages. We can safely say that such blankets are not a tribute to fashion, but rather an inexpensive way to take care of the health of all family members, providing them with a comfortable and pleasant sleep.
What is bamboo fiber
In eastern countries bamboo has long been used for construction and furniture production. Today, it is increasingly used as a raw material for the textile industry and as fillers. Moreover, it can confidently compete with viscose or siblon. Naturally, before getting inside the pillow or blanket, the three-year-old plant is crushed and softened under the press, after which a multi-stage cleaning and combing is performed. As a result, the fiber is lush, light and with very high strength values, which can be used as a filler for blankets, pillows, mattresses. The process of making bamboo fibers is a bit like making fabric from hemp or flax, although recently a more accelerated process using reactive substances is gaining popularity. The most popular options arebamboo blankets, reviews of which are only positive, made in an environmentally friendly way, without the use of modern technologies, but their cost will be higher and it is quite difficult to find them in our market (not all companies selling such blankets themselves know about the peculiarities of the origin of bamboo filler).
Advantages and Disadvantages of Bamboo Blankets
On the Internet, you can find numerous reviews of bamboo blankets , both positive and negative. Therefore, it makes sense to take a closer look at the properties of bamboo fiber blankets. Any bamboo blanket is natural and has nothing to do with synthetics. The indisputable advantages include:
- Minimum weight - it is several times less than that of down or cotton blankets;
- Hypoallergenic - bamboo fiber is an environmentally friendly natural material that does not cause allergic reactions;
- Hygroscopicity - bamboo blankets perfectly absorb moisture released by a person during sleep, and just as successfully give it to the surrounding space;
- The effect of "breathing" - under the blanket the microclimate is always optimal for a person.
In terms of their properties, bamboo blankets are similar to wadded and woolen blankets, only under them it is much more comfortable, because the light weight is practically not felt. Air circulation deserves special attention - it is not hot under a bamboo blanket, under it there is always a comfortable temperature for a person. It is worth noting that bamboo blankets have a pleasant natural aroma and do not accumulate unpleasant odors in themselves (wadded and downy counterparts "suffer" from this problem). Do not forget that a bamboo fiber blanket can be washed without any difficulties, and not all blankets can boast of such an opportunity. The blanket can be washed in any delicate washing mode with a minimum spin in an automatic washing machine.
Has a bamboo blanket reviews and disadvantages as from comfortersetreviews - quite often sellers who are not clean on hand sell ordinary synthetic winterizer blankets under the guise of bamboo or offer a mixture of bamboo fiber and feathers. When buying a blanket filled with a mixture of bamboo and feathers, there is a problem of stiffness that not everyone will like. Another point is the low weight, which is a plus, and at the same time a minus - it is necessary to get used to sleeping under such a blanket, as it seems that there is simply no blanket.
How to choose the right bamboo blanket
Today, you can buy several options for bamboo blankets, the reviews and disadvantages of which are not so critical - for winter and for summer. When choosing a blanket, you should pay attention to the quality of the seams and stitching (it should be uniform, since after washing such a blanket dries better and the fiber does not get tangled up). According to experts, one of the best options for filling such blankets is bamboo viscose (bamboo viscose) or bamboo rayon (bamboo silk), but quite often you can find options in which bamboo viscose is mixed with polyester fiber in a 1: 1 ratio. In our store you can buy only high-quality bamboo blankets from the most famous manufacturers at affordable prices.
