Ettitude Pure Bamboo Comforter Review {Sheet Set Giveaway April 16th!}



We are huge fans of cosleeping with our kids and it's been working so well in our circumstances. I'm all for the 'whatever works for your family' approach. It just always felt right to us personally and we've created a safe sleeping environment for all of us with a queen and twin size mattresses on the floor (no bed frames). Over the past couple of years we've been trying to convert our bedding to safer and healthier materials without pesticides and fire retardants. It's expensive for sure, but so important considering the amount of time  our children and us spend sleeping. I am very thankful to have the opportunity to review the Queen Size Bamboo Comforter from Ettitude to complete our family bed. 


Just in case you're not familiar with cosleeping, I want to assure you it is safe when done right and beneficial for mom and baby (see here), and actually great for intimacy (see here)! I always get these questions from moms!


The queen size bamboo comforter arrived in a very compact package, here is my daughter opening it, you can see how small it is. They had a blast verifying and amazing softness of the bamboo material! Before this comforter we had a down comforter, which was okay, but it isn't particularly healthy (can harbor mites, mold, and allergens). It was also unbelievably crinkly, the comforter shell would make so much noise every time someone moved. Now we absolutely love how quiet this bamboo comforter is, it's so soft - like silk or cashmere. 

It is very thin but surprisingly warm! At first I was skeptical, I wasn't sure something so thin would keep us warm at night. When it arrived a few weeks back we still had chilly nights with frost in March. I would say we did get a little cold under it when temperatures dipped to 65 in our bedroom (we are economical with heat!), but it was perfect for anything 68 degrees and above - which is the temperature in most people's bedrooms. I just love how compact it is, that it's not at all bulky. It's perfect for storage too, like in the summer when we don't use anything but a sheet because without AC our indoor temperatures rise to 85 or more degrees.  


It's the perfect comforter to use year round for kids and adults. Bamboo is anti-static, anti-bacterial, and hypoallergenic. It is perfect for people with allergies, eczema, sensitive skin, etc. The comforter is 100% bamboo on the outside (200 thread count) and filled with 100% bamboo on the inside. It's great for hot and cold sleepers as it is breathable and regulates temperature. That is perfect for us because I'm a cold sleeper and my husband is a hot sleeper! We were always uncomfortable with our down comforter, he would be hot and I was either okay or cold. Now we're both content and wake up more refreshed! 

The comforter is made from organic bamboo - a pesticide free, sustainable, and renewable resource. It's also 100% biodegradable! The material adheres to Oeko-Tex Standard 100. Of course such a high quality comes with a price tag, the winter weight comforters are priced as follows: Twin $154.95, Double $184.95, Queen $219.95, King $259.95. They also come in a summer weight option, which is great for warmer climates or if you keep your home particularly toasty warm even in the winter: Twin $124.95, Double $154.95, Queen $189.95, King $224.95. The great thing is that they are durable and will last indefinitely. You can also protect the comforter with a bamboo duvet to extend its life. It's an investment that's worth it for the health of your family!

  50. These look so wonderful. I've been wanting to try sheets like this with my allergies and sleep apnea, but they're a bit too expensive, reading this it might be a good idea to make the investment.
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Wonderful! Is it only in white? I've got two cats who love to go outside, and them come in with muddy paws and don't mind leaving prints. They love to jump up on the bed and take cat naps; it makes them feel special. Duvet cover? Perhaps defeats the whole bamboo 'cashmere' purpose.....

    ReplyDelete
  52. Thanks for the review! I'm happy to hear that you really like the comforter. I would like to get one myself, because it is hypoallergenic, which is great for keeping allergens down in my bedroom, unlike a down comforter. I really like that the comforter is light in weight, and silky soft, unlike most down comforters, which are scratchy and so bulky you feel like you're fighting with it. Love the pics of your little ones "testing" it out :) (I left a comment but it didn't show up, so I'm leaving another)

    ReplyDelete
  53. The sheets sound great and your kids sure seem to love them. I believe in making a home safe for your children and adults

  75. I love that it is "anti-static, anti-bacterial, and hypoallergenic!" That would certainly make me feel better when we welcome our new baby, and they end up in bed with us! I also like that it is lighter, and I tend to get too hot when I sleep.

    1. All their comforters are white, but it's meant to have a duvet cover over it and they carry bamboo duvets in 6 great colors! That way it's easy to just take off the duvet and wash it instead of washing the whole comforter. :)

      Delete
  82. I love that these comforters come in different weights for different seasons, we love sleeping with a comforter but in warmer seasons it is just too much! The different weight may solve that problem!

  85. I have always loved bamboo products and this comforter sound perfect. Living in New Orleans we hard ever need thick comforters. So the bamboo comforter sounds just right for me.

    ReplyDelete
  86. I've been interested in bamboo products for sometime and would love to try the sheet, maybe the comforter too! I like the idea, that they are nice and soft!

    ReplyDelete
  87. they look like they are pure heaven. I hate when sheets are too hot, these are lightweight enough for a good night sleep.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Thanks for the review. I love that the bamboo sheets are static free. I have super curly hair and I get frizz something awful, static free is a huge help! Love the co-sleeping. I co-slept with both my kids and I think it brought us all closer together as a family and they feel more secure in their lives. My daughter is almost 14 and about once a month she requests that I come to back with her for the night, I really enjoy that. My son just turned 9 and we had been weenning him off of it mostly, down to once or twice a week, but my mom moved in with us and him and her share a bedroom. He usually ends up sleeping with her. I think it's good for both of them though, she's feeling a little misplaced, vulnerable and such since the doctors insisted she not live alone anymore. I think it gives HER a sense of security and responsibility and it's not hurting him any.
    And by the way, I LOVE the white! Especially during the spring and summer :D

    1. That's great! Thanks for sharing your co-sleeping story Heidi. I'm really thankful to my parents as well for not making me sleep alone when I didn't want to. I think it helped shaped my independence as an adult - it helped make me the self-started, entrepreneur that I am :) Along with many other thing of course... I love having our kids in bed with us, so cozy!
