Viscose bed sheets are known for their ability to keep you cool throughout the night. Usually made using bamboo plants as raw materials, these bedsheets have various qualities that either introduce coolness to your body or allow heat to escape from your body.
The desirable end result is that your body remains at an optimal sleeping temperature all night and your bed becomes the sleep oasis you have always wanted. Let us explore some of these cooling properties that viscose sheets have that keep you cool at night.
Viscose bed sheets have micro-gaps that trap cool air and is extremely breathable
Micro-gaps are a feature in viscose sheets. These tiny holes in the fabric allow your body heat to escape and trap cool air from the environment. This provides increased airflow and superior ventilation to your skin. It feels extremely soothing and comfortable. Some people describe it as a type of air-conditioning.
Viscose from bamboo sheets are more breathable than cotton sheets. However, it does not retain heat like cotton does. It is fast-drying and anti-static. Therefore, it does not cling to your skin and cause you to feel uncomfortable when you perspire.
Viscose sheets have moisture-wicking properties that regulates body temperature
Viscose bed sheets have a peculiar moisture-wicking quality. When you perspire, the fabric absorbs the perspiration from your skin and transports it towards the outside of the sheets where it evaporates.
Conventional cotton simply absorbs sweat and becomes saturated, resulting in it sticking to your skin. But bamboo bed sheets pull moisture away from your skin so that you feel dry and comfortable all night long.
By keeping your skin dry, viscose bed sheets enable your body to cool down. The heat in your perspiration is transported away when it evaporates, leaving you feeling cooler while you sleep.
Viscose from bamboo sheets are highly absorbent and will not easily get saturated
Viscose bed sheets are extremely absorbent. It can absorb up to three times its own weight in water and is about 40% more absorbent than cotton. This means that your viscose sheets will not easily become saturated with perspiration. Therefore, you will sleep comfortably because your skin will be in contact with fabric that feels dry and airy.
