Quick Overview

purple image

The Purple Bamboo Bed Sheets are made using a bamboo-based viscose material, sometimes referred to as regenerated bamboo. The fabric consists of 90 percent bamboo-based viscose and 10 percent spandex.

Purple’s bed sheets are thin, breathable, and lightweight. They’re extremely stretchy, thanks in part to the spandex weaved into the fabric. These bed sheets are seamless in design, allowing them to lay flat and remain free of wrinkles.

Purple makes no mention of thread count as the brand feels that thread count number can be deceptive. It’s true that some manufacturers use less than honest methods to inflate thread count totals in an effort to claim superior comfort. Instead, the company focuses on the functionality and overall quality of their bed sheets.

The Purple Bamboo Sheet Set comes in four colors: white, sand, slate, and purple. The sheets are available in Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King sizes. All sets come with a flat sheet and fitted sheet. The Twin and Twin XL sheet sets include a single pillowcase; Full, Queen, King, and California King come with two pillowcases. The fitted sheet is stretchier than most fitted sheets, and will easily wrap around mattresses up to 16 inches deep.

Pros
  • Incredibly soft
  • Seamless material that is less likely to wrinkle
  • The material stretches around and clings to bedding and will stay in place
  • Unlikely to snag on the skin, allowing for additional comfort if you move around during the night
  • Breathable and wick away moisture
  • Little shrinkage after washing; any shrinkage isn’t very noticeable thanks to the incredible amount of stretch
Cons
  • No trial offer
  • No return policy or money back guarantee
  • Items can’t be bought separately

What Buyers Say

Very Good

What Buyers Say

The sheets are thin and loose enough to be breathable while not snagging the skin.

Sizing & Pricing

Purple prices its bamboo bed sheets very competitively. There’s nothing like this fabric on the market, and it’s uniquely made to be both ultra-stretchy without sacrificing its extra soft nature. These sheets are among the most comfortable on the market and are worth buying if you’re in the market for durable, lightweight bamboo sheets.

The sheets are priced for a fitted sheet, flat sheet, at least one pillowcase; Full-size sheet sets and up come with a second pillowcase. Currently, Purple only makes its bed sheets available as part of a set; these items cannot be purchased separately.

Purple offers their sheets for free with the purchase of a mattress.

Cleaning

Purple bamboo sheets are durable and well made. You can get the most out of them through responsible and gentle washing. Purple recommends that you machine wash the sheets cold and then line dry them. If you’d prefer, machine dry the fabric on the lowest heat and tumble setting. Avoid heat drying if at all possible. These sheets are not bleach-safe; bleaching could harm the elasticity of the fabric.

Return Policy & Warranty Information

Purple doesn’t offer a trial period for their sheets due to their intimate and unique nature. There’s no money back guarantee with the sheet purchase. If you want to be sure that Purple’s sheets are the right bedding choice for you before buying them, you can visit the Purple showroom in Alpine, Utah or try the sheets out at stores located throughout the United States.

The bed sheets do come with one year warranty period. If your sheets were purchased new from Purple or an authorized reseller and you find that they are faulty or defective, Purple will repair or replace them. You should hold onto your original proof of purchase in the event you wish to have your sheets repaired or replaced. Purple does not consider damage due to neglect or improper care covered by the warranty.

Shipping & Delivery

Purple bed sheets usually ship within one to three days of your order. Exceptions exist for very popular sets. For example, Purple’s Queen size bamboo sheets are frequently their best sellers, especially in the trademark purple. The shipping period for those sheets can take upwards of three weeks. High demand items aside, once shipped, the sheet set should reach you in a few days.

Purple offers free shipping to customers in the contiguous United States.
