If you are sick of hearing me rave about my love for bamboo, I’m sorry.  Okay, not really, I genuinely love bamboo, and when I discovered Cariloha, I immediately began drooling.  It was quite pathetic actually.  I think there was actual drool.  You see, they have bamboo sheets.  Have you felt bamboo things before?  I think my love affair with it started when I used a bamboo cloth diaper for the first time.  It is amazingly soft and luxurious.  I could not even imagine how wonderful it would be to crawl into my bed with bamboo sheets on it.  I actually did a happy dance when I found out I was going to get some to review.

Why bamboo?

It’s soft!  As in luxuriously soft.  Softer than cotton, it makes you want to snuggle in it.

It is cooler.  Not like hip cool {although it is that} but temperature cool.  It is 3 degrees cooler than cotton and helps wick moisture away from your body.

It’s clean and green.  Doesn’t that simple statement make you smile?  Bamboo is naturally hypoallergenic AND one of the most sustainable resources on the planet.

Now onto the good stuff – what we reviewed and what we think of it.

Cariloha review

First up is the sheets.  The sheet set is complete with a fitted sheet, flat sheet, and two pillowcases.  Let me start by saying the sheets I generally sleep on are something like 300 thread count, so, clearly not the worlds greatest sheets.  When I was looking at the website and read, “softer than 1,000 thread count Egyptian cotton” you can bet I wanted to overnight these sheets, haha.  The sheets were promptly thrown into the wash as soon as they arrived.  They are so thin and soft, I was anxious to get them onto my bed right away.  As if I needed another reason to want to sleep at night, bamboo sheets from Cariloha were certainly a good reason for me.  I was a little concerned that because they are thin, that they would rip after washing a few times.  So far, I’ve washed and dried the sheets at least 5 times, and they are still in the same soft, cozy shape they were when they arrived.  They are so soft, that I did something I never, ever do.  I actually used the flat sheet because it felt so good on my skin.  It’s only been about um, I don’t know, 20 years since I used one.

Next up, the towel set.  The Cariloha bamboo towel sets come with a bath towel, hand towel, and wash cloth made from a blend of rayon from renewable bamboo and cotton.  They are hypoallergenic and snag resistant.  They are also soft and luxurious.  I love how fluffy the bath towel is when I get out of the shower in the morning.  Each piece of the set has a 3 stitch contrast stitch border, adding a little elegance to these beautiful towels.  While I love the size of all 3 pieces, I’m especially impressed with the size of the hand towel.  A little bigger than most of the hand towels we currently own, it is the perfect size, at 16 x 30 inches for just about whatever you may use it for.  Plus, they are beautiful!  I won’t lie, I think I may have threatened John if he dared to use MY TOWELS!!!

Lastly, the 2-in-1 genesis dress in black and gray.  Taking the dress out of the packaging, even knowing how wonderful bamboo feels, this dress felt amazing.  With a deep v-neck front, and hibiscus flowers accenting it, this dress is the perfect, lightweight summer dress for a bamboo lover like me.  I really love the knotted look at the bottom of the v-neck.  I’m 5 foot 3 and this 38″ dress fits me perfectly.  For those cooler days, I can toss on a light sweater to add a splash of color.
