Those with sensitive skin

Anyone who doesn’t want to pay over $100 for their sheets

Layla Bamboo Sheets Review

There is something extra luxurious about sleeping on high quality sheets, and Layla wants you to be able to experience that. Using bamboo is much better for the environment because, as a grass (not a tree), it grows very quickly and can be cut several times a year. It also uses 200x less water than cotton, and doesn’t need any harsh chemicals sprayed on it because it’s naturally pest-resistant. If you’re looking to elevate your sleep routine and help out the environment, these Layla Bamboo Sheets could be a really nice option.

Buying Process For Layla Bamboo Sheets

In case you’re new here, we love the Layla mattress; it’s a soft memory foam mattress that incorporates copper and is flippable with two different firmness levels on either side.

They are premium indeed

Once you purchase your Layla Bamboo Sheet Set, you can expect it to ship to you for free within three to six business days. Their facility is located in San Fernando, California, so there isn’t any international travel to wait on (assuming you live in the United States). From the day they arrive, you’ll have a 120-night trial period window to return them, which is a full four months.

If, within those 120 nights, you decide you don’t want the sheets anymore, just send an email to Layla’s customer service and they will arrange for your free return. You should receive a complete refund of your purchase, but shipping fees to Canada, Hawaii, and Alaska are non-refundable.

If you keep your Layla Bamboo Sheets, they will be covered under a 5-year warranty, which pertains to all materials and workmanship. Examples of warranty issues include stitching or seams coming undone, or fraying and rips in the material.

Overview Of These Sheets

The Layla Bamboo Sheets are available in the full spectrum of sizes, which includes twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king. They are available in either a dark grey or white color, and can fit mattresses that are up to 14” deep, which is pretty thick in the mattress department, but they don’t offer any extra deep sheets for extra thick beds or mattresses with toppers.

We have a lot of positive things to say about the Layla Bamboo Sheets

To keep your sheets clean, Layla instructs that you wash your bamboo sheets in cold water on delicate. Air drying your sheets is favored, but if you can’t do that, throw them in your dryer with no heat. If you choose the white sheet set, don’t bleach them. You’ll ruin the texture of the sheets, and it can actually possibly make them more yellow. You can read more about taking care of your white sheets in this article.

We have to say, these sheets got even better after washing them. They got a bit smoother, and less stiff and pressed feeling—sort of like breaking in a new pair of shoes. We should note that we did use the no-heat dryer method, rather than air drying. The pillowcases felt better on our skin, and definitely nicer on our hair than cotton or flannel sheets.

These sheets have a 300-thread count, which is good. Typically, you want 250-thread count or higher. But bamboo sheets are known for being cooling and wicking away moisture, and we have to agree when it comes to these Layla sheets.

Overall Feel Of Layla’s Sheets

These sheets feel pretty luxurious, like you’re sleeping in nice hotel sheets. They’re very thick and durable, and we like the thick white stitching detail. They feel like a hybrid of really high quality cotton and silk, because they feel quite smooth, but also thicker and more durable than silk typically is and they aren’t slippery.

They have a soft, smooth feel

Keep in mind though, these sheets do not have a cozy and warm feel to them. They are cool, smooth, and luxurious. They are also hypoallergenic, which is great for those with allergies or sensitive skin. We think these sheets will be best for summer time use when you’re looking to sleep cooler and have more breathability.

Layla Bamboo Sheets Price

Honestly, these are some pretty expensive sheets. Everyone here on the Slumber Yard team is under 30 years old, and none of us are millionaires (yet), so we don’t consider these sheets in budget, but we’re very jealous of you if they are in your budget. You can see the current price of the sheets on Layla’s website.

SizePrice (MSRP)
Twin$125
Twin XL$130
Full$175
Queen$195
King / Cal King$225

These sheets cost around $195 for a queen sized set, which includes a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and two pillow cases. In our opinion, these are the type of sheets you want for your main bedroom, the sheets that you’ll be sleeping on every night, not your guest bedroom.

Layla Bamboo Sheets Review: Verdict & Conclusion

If you’re looking to elevate your sleeping experience, treat yourself with these sheets. Considering we spend about a third of our 24-hour days sleeping, you might as well do it in style. These sheets are going to be best for those who like the feel of smooth, weighty, and somewhat silky sheets, tend to sweat at night, want to stay cool, and also help out the environment in the process.

How did we get these sheets?

Well, Layla sent them to us to try out. We’re pals with Layla, but this is not a sponsored post and all opinions are our own.

Does Layla offer any other accessories?

They sure do! Besides their flippable mattress, they have a memory foam topper, a bed frame, a foundation, and a pillow. We hope they come out with a bean bag next. The bamboo sheets in this review are the only sheets that they offer at this time, though.

How does the bamboo compare to other sheet materials like cotton?

Bamboo is considered more of a luxury material compared to cotton, polyester, or flannel sheets. Bamboo is very durable, smooth, silky, breathable, and moisture wicking. Because of their breathability and moisture wicking ability, they stay much cooler than cotton or flannel sheets. Bamboo is also typically better for your skin and hair because it doesn’t absorb moisture like cotton, therefore it’s not dehydrating you.

How do refunds work?

Customers will receive a 120-night trial to test our their sheets, and if you don’t love them, Layla will issue you a refund. Though, customers in Canada, Hawaii, and Alaska will have to pay for shipping on refunds.

How thick of a mattress can these sheets accommodate?

The Layla Bamboo Sheets are able to fit around mattresses that are up to 14″ deep.

What is their thread count?

These sheets have a 300-thread count.
