Wild and Wooly Waterbed Sheets

Nov 9, 2007
The days of the plain white sheet are over. Now I personally prefer the feel of a crisp, freshly washed white bed sheet. For those folks who want a little something more from their waterbed the proverbial white sheet may not be decorative enough. The good news is that waterbed sheets and bedding items such as quilts have really come a long way and are now available in many different styles, prints and colors.

Color choices have never been greater and can include color hues from the subtle to the loud and bright. The fabric can sometimes determine the color if you choose sheets, especially if you can find waterbed sheets woven from such materials as bamboo and hemp. Unlike most commercially grown cotton, bamboo and hemp are more environmentally friendly.

In many parts of the world cotton growing can involve the use of chemical pesticides and herbicides. Bamboo and hemp can be grown without the use of these chemicals. Bamboo and hemp fabric is often blended with cotton fibers. Different fabrics react to color dyes in different ways

More and more consumers are choosing to go with one hundred percent organic fabrics. When looking at waterbed sheets that claim to be woven from organically grown materials, always ask for a certificate that guarantees the source of the fabric. Cotton, bamboo and hemp fabrics are all available from organically grown raw fibers. Bamboo fibers make an excellent replacement for virgin or recycled polyester.

Fabrics made from bamboo are unique from other types of fibers. Bamboo fibers have a natural antimicrobial property that will withstand the rigors of processing, weaving and countless washing in the family laundry.

Cotton and cotton blend waterbed sheets can be found in an incredibly wide variety of colors. In addition to color choices, prints and patterns can be found to fit almost any style of home and room decor. Gaining in popularity are bed linens that are made with dyes that are derived primarily from plant sources and other natural pigments.

Shopping online has provided consumers with a means of comparing prices and styles in a way not possible before widespread use of the internet. If you are lucky enough to live near a retail outlet that sells quality waterbed sheets, you may discover that the selection may be somewhat limited. Online shopping is convenient and the choices available are greater than ever before and many web sellers offer free shipping and return policies that can add to consumer confidence.

Quality websites will include full color examples of their products. The descriptions that sellers use to depict color choices are almost as varied as the colors themselves. Colors like bubblegum pink, corn silk gold and blueberry are just some of the fun ways sellers are marketing colors.

A style of bedding that is gaining in popularity is nature prints. Imagine bringing the beauty and diversity of Mother Nature into your home and sleeping space. Waterbed linens that offer an incredible variety of flora and fauna found in nature can be found on many popular websites.

Animals and plants are featured in various prints that can range from the funny to the sublime. Imagine climbing into be with koala bears, sleeping with jungle cats, dreaming with penguins or waking to the sight of a mother panda and her cub.

Pet fanciers can find bedding that features their animal favorites. Poodle sheets are not just for children anymore as more and more adults succumb to novelty of waterbed sheets that show off their favorite cat or dog breed. Name a domesticated species of dog and it is probably available in a sheet pattern for your waterbed.

Also gaining in popularity are jungle prints that can feature all manner of jungle flora and fauna. Leopard spots, zebra stripes and many other animal prints can adorn your waterbed.

Do you like landscapes or seascapes? You can find those too. From lighthouses and old barns to green forests and fields of wild flowers, the days of the plain old sheet have been long gone.

Playful colors and wacky prints can brighten any decor and living space. So why let the kids have all the fun. Online shopping makes going a little bit wild easier then ever before. So before you settle for plain white, blue or green, express your wild side the next time you shop for waterbed sheets.
