4 Amazing Fabrics for Waterbed Sheets

Aug 25, 2008
If you are thinking about getting a waterbed, but are concerned you will not be able to find sheets in a variety of fabric you can let that fear go. That was once the case, but now you can find waterbed sheets in a wide range of fabrics, including some very eco friendly fabrics. In addition you can find a wide range of patterns and colors as well.

Bamboo Waterbed sheets

This is a relatively new material in waterbed sheets, but with an increase in demand for using eco friendly resources they are more readily available. Bamboo fabric is woven from a very renewable resource and is completely bio-degradable. Bamboo doesn't require pesticides to grow. Bamboo will keep you cooler and drier than cotton and is as soft as silk to sleep on. The fibers in bamboo wick away moisture up to nine times faster than cotton. This makes bamboo sheets a perfect fabric for those who tend to be "hot sleepers" and perspire in their sleep. Bamboo is naturally anti-microbial killing bacteria, fungus and microbes. This keeps your sheets virtually odor free between washing which allows you to enjoy cleaner, healthier sheets.

Satin Waterbed sheets

Satin waterbed sheets are most known for being very smooth, actually, they can be out and out slippery. Many people find them enjoyable to sleep on though. Satin can be made from both silk and polyester. The polyester satin sheets will be more durable, and less expensive. Silk sheets will be more luxurious, but you will pay for the luxury. Satin sheets often come with the fitted sheet and top sheet attached at the bottom of the bed. This keeps both sheets in place and from sliding off the bed.

Cotton Waterbed sheets

Cotton has always been the mainstay for waterbed sheets. They are comfortable and cool, and usually very economical. When you buy cotton sheets you want to make sure you are getting pure cotton sheets. You can do this by checking the amount of cotton in the sheet and making sure it is 100%. Cotton waterbed sheets have a measured called thread count. The thread count tells you the number of weaves of cotton within one square inch of sheet. Sheets come in a wide variety of thread counts, anywhere from 80 to over 1000. You will likely find, higher thread sheets cost more than sheets with a lower thread count. High thread count sheets will also be softer sheet. If you are looking for a comfortable quality waterbed sheet find sheets that have a thread count of at least 180. Cotton waterbed sheets may seem too big when you first put them on the bed, this is to compensate for cotton shrinking in the wash. These sheets are easy to wash and dry at home.

Percale Waterbed sheets

Percale is a more durable every day material made of a 50/50 blend of cotton and polyester. It is made to be durable. When well cared for percale waterbed sheets can last from 10 to 20 years. You will find your sheets will last longer if you have a few sets that you can rotate regularly. Percale is easily washable at home in your washing machine. You can also dry these sheets in a regular dryer.

As you can see having a waterbed no longer limits your ability to find sheets in basic and luxurious fabrics. Waterbed sheets have come a long way, and are now made with unique design features to make them not only beautiful, but keep them on the bed.
