Luxury Is…

  1. Ok, so why Bamboo sheets? I myself just bought a couple of new sets of sheets. One is 660 count Sateen and the other is 720 Egyptian -both cotton of course (an early girlfriend put me on the right path away from the synthetic blends I grew up with and I’ve never looked back). That’s always been my height of luxury in sleepware!

    1. Well, why not? Other people told me they were great, so…decided to give them a try. The whole count thing is mystifying! The cotton thing can be problematic, like the growing of same and processing. Who knows. They are nice and silky! I wonder what silk sheets would be like, probably never know, not being royality or anything!

  2. I too, grew up the same way you did Phyllis. And also like you, if I had oodles of money and no concerns about water & energy waste, I would definitely change my sheets daily!! There is nothing more exhilarating than fresh sheets against your (naked) skin!

    1. I totally agree Mary Ann. If only someone could bottle the smell of sheets that have been hung to dry outside in the sunshine!

  3. Why bamboo sheets??? Bamboo is very durable, extremely soft and bonus: from a quickly renewable resource. In my experience high thread count cotton sheets are not able to stand up to my alligator feet like the bamboo.
    Playing in the sheets hanging in the basement was kind of fun, though. Remember when she ironed them, too!

    1. I am returning my bamboo sheets, they seem to be defective and when washed in cold water and dried on low heat in the dryer, put off quite a bit of fluff. Also they pil when we sleep on them! Don’t know. I really like the Egyptian cotton sheets we have, they are nice and satiny. God, I had forgotten about the ironing sheets! Crazy…what I remember the most is the smell from hanging outside!
