I have been on the hunt for sustainable, eco friendly bed sheets for a while and finally decided on trying eucalyptus lyocell sheets from the Denver startup Sheets & Giggles. I think you’ll want to hear about them, so keep reading. ;)
While some of their humor is admittedly cheeky, one thing I love is the personality behind this company. With core values like “Above all else, have fun” and “Actively make others happy” together with an adorable dog named Harvey and a love of giving away free Pizza to customers... how could you not stop to check out this brand?
Here are some cool things they do besides give away free pizza:
Why Eucalyptus Lyocell For Sheets?
Most of us will think of cotton when it comes to sheets. But the truth is, eucalyptus sheets are softer, more breathable, and more sustainable than cotton. They are hypoallergenic and zero static means less crazy hair mornings. Eucalyptus lyocell also uses up to 96% less water than cotton to produce and requires ZERO pesticides/insecticides and 30% less energy than cotton to produce. Wow. Talk about a super hero.
For every tree that is harvested, two are planted.
Oh yeah, and they use a closed-loop manufacturing process meaning there is very little waste.
Actual Review of Sheets & Giggles Sheets
I opted for the queen set of sheets, white, along with an extra set of pillowcases and a duvet cover for my new weighted comforter.
I love how thefull white sheet set looks as I have never had completely white bedding aside from during hotel stays. I have to admit it is quite soothing to see such a crisp space before resting your head for the night.
I’m not the kind of person who is going to be ironing their sheets. These sheets are easy to smooth in the morning to have a freshly made bed with a few carefree wrinkles that say “hey, a real person sleeps here!” I like that.
They say that Eucalyptus is more breathable and will stay cool all night. Sometimes I wonder if that’s real or just racket. But honestly, I think it’s true guys. I used to toss and turn all night throwing blankets on and off trying to regulate temperature. I know I am thrashing much less at night (read: NO thrashing) with a weighted comforter because it's a lot more work frankly. Still, I have to admit thatthe sheets are a breath of fresh air compared to the cotton ones I had just before them and used along with the weighted comforter. It’s hard to explain. I get in, pull the sheets up to my ears. I feel all cozy and snuggled in, but simultaneously cool. it seems like an oxymoron, but I guess it’s the kind of moron I like. How about you?
Additionally, this is the first time thedeep pocket sheets are actually deep! My last sheet set from day 1 barely fit over my mattress. Add to that washing every week and over time I could barely get it to stay on the mattress, let alone cover the whole thing. The Sheets & Giggles Queen Eucalyptus Lyocell Sheets are truly deep. They fit beyond the depth of my mattress which I am thrilled with! Now there’s no more physical straining to stretch the fitted sheet over the mattress. Yay!
Actual Review of Sheets & Giggles Duvet Cover
The duvet cover feels wonderful like the sheets. It includes corner ties to attach your insert to and prevent sliding which is fairly common I think. There are buttons along one side of the duvet to give you access to put the comforter in and to remove it when you want to wash the cover. I haven’t done this yet, I only have washed it new and then put the comforter in. The process was fine. I can’t decide if I would rather have a zipper set up over the buttons. If a zipper breaks then your cover is kind of ruined unless you have someone who can sew big zippers in for you. If a button comes loose, most average people could sew it back on if needed. So that’s one plus. No matter what, I think taking duvet covers on and off is kind of a pain and that’s why I do it less often than I probably should. [BTW how often should I be doing that?]
