The popular mattress brand Layla has debuted a set of premium bamboo sheets. The sheets are silky-soft, easy to care for, and super lightweight and breathable. Bamboo is known for being odor-resistant and moisture-wicking, making it super popular in sheets.
How do these hold up? Read on for our full review.
Who Makes It?
Layla is a mattress company that makes a super unique bed. The Layla mattress is soft on one side and firm on the other. The company also uses copper-infused foam in its mattress, and it brought some of that technology to its new pillow.
Layla also has a pillow that features a copper-infused yarn cover. This pillow is filled with a mix of Kapok fibers and shredded pieces of memory foam. The recently updated version (you can check out our review here) is adjustable, so it should work for all sleep types.
- The sheets come in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King sizes
- Comes with a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases (Twin and Twin XL come with one pillowcase)
- Available in white and gray colors
- Made with 100 percent viscose from bamboo
- Fits mattresses up to 15” tall
- 300 thread count (bamboo fabric thread count is different than cotton)
- Hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial/microbial and moisture-wicking
- Care: Machine wash in cold water, low tumble dry and either remove immediately or iron on a low setting to remove wrinkles
- Should maintain original quality for up to 1,000 washes
- Price ranges from $125 (Twin) to $225 (Cal King)

- Durable and drapes nicely
- On the more expensive side ($195 for a Queen set at full price)
- Temperature-regulating but probably the best fit for people who don’t want a thick and heavy sheet for the winter months
- Wrinkles easily; ironing may be needed
- White will be a little sheer on the bed

Bamboo bed sheets are growing in popularity. Bamboo is an eco-friendly plant that is easy to grow and has several pleasant and natural characteristics that are ideal for sheets. It is durable, moisture-wicking, and deodorizing. While there is some debate as to whether these features transfer to sheets during the manufacturing process, I can vouch that the Layla bamboo sheets are indeed super soft, lightweight, and durable.
I recommend washing the sheets (following the company’s care directions) before using. Try to grab them quickly out of your dryer and put them on your bed to smooth out the wrinkles, since bamboo sheets are more prone to wrinkling.
The white color that I reviewed is a little sheer but very lightweight and soft. It has nice gray piping around the edge of the flat sheet and the pillowcases. The sheets draped really nicely on my bed, and the fitted sheet can fit mattresses up to 15″ deep.
For hot sleepers or those who live in hotter climates (or during those summer months!), these sheets could be a great match. They breathe very well and, while I never got sweaty enough to test this out, they should wick any moisture away.
Bamboo sheets don’t feel crisp like percale cotton sheets or as thick as jersey knit; they have their own soft feel that is pretty unique. Without a doubt, they are incredibly soft and look really nice on a bed. They’re sure to be a big hit, especially for those who tend to sleep hot.
The Layla Premium Bamboo sheets are some of my favorite bamboo sheets right now. They are incredibly soft and cool to the touch. While they did wrinkle pretty easily (even more than cotton or jersey knit sheets), these weren’t too bad when I pulled them straight out of the dryer.
The nice thing about these is that you have 120-nights to try them, just like all other Layla products. They’re an investment at $195 for a Queen, but if you decide the feel isn’t quite right for you, you can send them back.
If you’re looking for bamboo sheets and have the money to try these out, I’d recommend them in white or gray!
