To maximize the comfort of your mattress, Purple design their sheets to have plenty of stretch. They did this by creating a blend of 90% viscose from bamboo, and 10% spandex. This blend makes for a lightweight, breathable, soft fabric that is ideal for snuggling up and heading off to sleep.
Bamboo viscose is a great material for bedding because it is very breathable. In fact, the Purple Sheets are about 83% more breathable than Egyptian cotton sheets. The combination of breathable viscose and stretchy spandex allows these sheets to maximize the comfort of your mattress. This is especially true if you are sleeping on a Purple mattress. Purple specializes in mattresses that allow for extra airflow and pressure relief. These sheets allow the mattress to perform at its best.
Are the Purple Sheets Comfortable?
When traditional sheets are pulled tight, they often cause a lot of tension over the top of the mattress. This provides a stiff feeling as you lay on it and prevents you from getting pressure relief needed from the top few layers of your mattress. Instead it causes discomfort and pressure points. Which is the entire reason Purple created their own sheets.
They added spandex to their bamboo viscose sheets to give it plenty of stretch. This allows your sheets to fit over your mattress while also allowing for pressure relief. This allows you to benefit fully from the comfort layers created in your mattress beneath. The Purple Sheets work especially nicely with the Purple Mattresses, however they also pair beautifully with just about every mattress you put them on.
The viscose from bamboo is a very breathable fabric. It has a smooth finish to the sheets that is very comfortable and does a great job at staying cool. They lightweight breathable sheets are ideal for allows lots of airflow in order to stay cool throughout the night.
