What Is the Difference Between Cool-jams™ Rayon From Bamboo Bedding and Cool-jams™ Temperature-Regulating Bedding?
Both our Cool-jams™ rayon from bamboo bedding and Outlast bedding by Cool-jams™ are temperature-regulating and very effective for helping with night sweats and nighttime temperature control. Rayon from bamboo bedding uses the natural cooling, wicking and antimicrobial properties of bamboo to make these products so effective. Our bamboo products are cooler to the touch than cotton, wick heat and moisture faster than cotton and are naturally antimicrobial and antibacterial. Not only are they super effective for night sweats, but they are the softest sheets, blankets and pillow cases that we've ever felt anywhere. We currently offer rayon from bamboo sheets, rayon from bamboo blankets and rayon from bamboo pillowcases.
Our Cool-jams™ temperature-regulating bedding uses special Outlast technology that helps to regulate the body temperature through proactive heat and moisture management. Our Cool-jams™ bedding products balance the temperature under the covers by absorbing heat when it gets too warm and releasing it back when you cool down. By doing so, it keeps the temperature and humidity within your bed in the optimum range for restful sleep. The bedding is not a wicking product like bamboo bedding but a heat management technology. Our Outlast technology is incorporated into a vast array of Cool-jams™ products, including cooling mattress pads, cooling sheets, cool pillows and cooling blankets - all designed to help you get a more restful night's sleep!
Key Features of Rayon From Bamboo Bedding:
- Super soft: All linens are not created equal! Cool-jams™ is proud to offer 300 thread count bamboo bed sheets - the highest count possible in bamboo fabrics without losing the natural benefits. Soft to the touch with a smooth, silky feel, they are most comparable to 1,000 thread count Pima cotton.
Hypo-allergenic: Bamboo fibers are spun as round and as fine as hair, making them feel extremely smooth against the skin. People who suffer from skin sensitivities will feel comfortable with our non-abrasive linens. Our manufacturing process uses no harsh chemicals that can cause skin irritation.
Temperature-regulating: The microstructure of our rayon from bamboo products help you sleep at the perfect temperature all throughout the night, regardless of whether you are a hot or a cold sleeper. Our fabric is composed of individual bamboo fibers that contain micro-gaps and holes, making them highly breathable and ventilated.
Odor-resistant: There is a natural antimicrobial agent in bamboo called "bamboo kun". This bacteriostatic bio-agent allows bamboo to naturally thrive in the wilderness without the use of fertilizers or pesticides. These remarkable antibacterial and antimicrobial attributes allow the bamboo linens and blankets to be odor- and mildew-resistant.
Eco-friendly: Bamboo, one of the earth's most sustainable resources, is amazingly fast growing: up to 3 feet per day! Bamboo plays a critical role in the balance of oxygen and carbon dioxide. It releases 35% more oxygen and takes in five times the volume of greenhouse gases as an equivalent stand of timber trees. Bamboo is praised as "the natural, green and eco-friendly textile material of the 21st century" because of all of its amazing qualities.
- Moisture-wicking: Rayon from bamboo linens naturally wick moisture away from the body to the outside of the fabric to provide excellent thermal regulation. You'll stay dry and comfortable, as the bamboo fabric evaporates moisture from your skin three times faster than cotton or any other natural fiber. The same qualities that give bamboo fabric its absorbency also give it its incredible wicking capabilities.
Machine-washable: Rayon from bamboo is best cared for by washing in warm water and drying on low to medium. Do not use bleach, fabric softener or dryer sheets/balls since bleach and fabric softener will diminish the effectiveness of the product.
Key Features of Outlast By Cool-jams™ Temperature-Regulating Bedding:
- Temperature-regulating: Outlast by Cool-jams™ technology will proactively manage heat while controlling the production of moisture before it begins. When the body is hot, it absorbs excess heat. And when the body cools down, it releases heat. We call this a phase-change technology, not a wicking technology.
- Certified Space Technology: The Certified Space Technology seal is issued by The Space Foundation. Outlast technology was originally developed for NASA and now is used in a variety of bedding products offered by Cool-jams™.
- Comfort ratings: Our Cool-jams™ by Outlast products carry gold or silver comfort ratings to designate how much heat and moisture management they provide. A gold rating offers the highest possible amount of heat and moisture management, while silver-rated products provide slightly less and are meant to supplement to our gold-rated products. Generally speaking, the more Outlast fibers used in the product, the higher the comfort rating. What is your rating?
Silver comfort rating: Great for couples who are thermally incompatible, those living in a warm climate and people who just tend to run warm while sleeping.
Gold comfort rating: This is our highest comfort rating and good for all the same reasons as the silver rating, but it is extra helpful for people who experience night sweats or those who want relief from a very hot foam mattress.
- Super soft and machine-washable: All of our Outlast by Cool-jams™ products are produced to be soft, comfortable and machine-washable. We recommend washing in warm or cold water on a gentle cycle, or tumble dry on medium temperature.
What Should I Keep in Mind to Optimize the Effectiveness of Any Cool-jams™ Bedding Products?
Our bedding works best when the room temperature is between 65°F and 68°F. The Better Sleep Council recommends setting your room temperature in this range, and we have developed our products to work best in this range as well.
None of our bedding products can substitute for an air conditioner but aid in temperature-balancing. In this sense, we like to describe our products as products that help keep you thermally neutral while sleeping to provide a more comfortable night's sleep.
Can Cool-jams™ Bedding Products Help Hot Flashes and Night Sweats?
It's no secret: Women who experience hot flashes have a tough time sleeping. Both Cool-jams™ wicking rayon from bamboo or our Outlast temperature-regulating bedding products can help buffer those temperature swings by keeping the body cool and dry and absorbing excess heat to help you get a better night's sleep.
Can Cool-jams™ Bedding Products Help Bed Partners Sleep Better?
The answer is yes...especially if you suffer from thermal incompatibility with your bed partner. Do you sometimes feel cold while your bed partner feels hot? Before you head to the couch, consider the temperature-regulating benefits of our Cool-jams™ bedding products. Our bamboo and temperature-regulating bedding products can help adapt your own unique temperature needs by keeping you and your partner more comfortable for a better night's sleep.
How Can Cool-jams™ Cooling Mattress Pads Help Me Sleep Better?
We rarely think about the mattress pad we use on our beds, but we should. Mattress pads made with Outlast materials have the unique ability to keep your temperature balanced and comfortable so you can get a better night's sleep. Our cooling mattress pad is especially helpful when you use a memory foam mattress since this type of mattress tends to overheat.
Why Use a Temperature-Regulating or Rayon From Bamboo Blanket?
Whoever said "love conquers all" never slept with someone who stole all the covers. For the sake of a better night's sleep and stronger relationships everywhere, bedding with cooling properties works to balance your changing temperature, helping you sleep more soundly throughout the night. No more throwing off or stealing covers from your bed partner. Cool-jams™ cooling comforters and stay cool blankets can help!
When Should I Use Cooling Sheets?
Our cooling rayon from bamboo sheets and our Outlast temperature-regulating bed sheets are extremely helpful when you suffer from night sweats, hot flashes or live in warm climates. Combined with our cool mattress pad and cool pillow, you'll sleep cooler, drier and more comfortably every night.
What About Your Pillow? Does It Get Hot?
You know the story; throughout the night, you flip the pillow in search of the cool side. The pillows we offer are made with Outlast materials so you can finally sleep throughout the night without having to search for the cool side of the pillow! Our cooling temperature-regulating pillows will make a great night's sleep a normal occurrence.
How Was This Temperature-Regulating Bedding Technology Developed?
Our Cool-jams™ technology by Outlast was originally developed for NASA. It was designed to help regulate body temperature through proactive heat management. Our special technology works continuously to manage the build-up of heat and moisture under the covers caused by fluctuations in skin temperature. By proactively managing heat build-up next to skin, our Cool-jams™ bedding with Outlast technology helps individuals sleep at just the right temperature for a great night's sleep.
