I just got my hands on the Purple sheets. They are advertising them as stretchy, soft and comfy so that you can get the most out of your Purple mattress or any mattress for that matter. They are indeed stretchy, comfy and cozy and in this review I’ll lay out the pros and cons of these sheets. After having already reviewed the Purple Mattress, the Purple Mattress Protector and the Purple Pillow, I have come to find that these are really innovative products. They certainly aren’t for everyone but I am glad that Purple is bringing innovation to the space.
Purple has some of the best product commercials. They are entertaining and informative. They actually make bedding interesting! Here’s the Purple sheets commercial from YouTube:
Ordering and Unboxing
Purple has great packaging. Not that it affects the feel of the sheets but it certainly makes receiving and even giving them as gifts, fun. The box has a lid that closes with a magnet. There’s also a cut out sample of the Purple sheets fabric so that you can feel them before you even take them out of the box. An important point to note is that there is no returns on these sheets so if you don’t like them you are sort of out of luck.
Here are the construction details of the Purple sheets as listed on their site:
|Appx. Weight:||4 lbs|
|Fabric Content:||10% Spandex, 90% Bamboo-derived Rayon|
|Shipping Dimensions (LxWxH):||11″ x 9″ x 5.5″|
As you can see these are basically rayon sheets. They say bamboo derived but after all the processing that goes into making these, they are rayon.
There is an assumption that bamboo sheets are eco friendly but that is not true. Lots of chemicals are used in order to create the fabric for sheets with bamboo. That’s true with any bamboo sheets, not just the Purple sheets.
I just received these sheets and will update readers on any issues I have with them but so far so good. I appreciate the stretchiness of the sheest without sacrificing softness. Other bamboo sheets I have tried have a very silky feel. These dont’ have quite as much of a silky feel so they will feel a little more cozy. I really like the heavy duty band and they would be the best sheets for an adjustable bed where traditional sheets can easily come lose due to flexing the mattress.
